The recently released Tamil flick Thani Oruvan seems to have created ripples among members of the Telugu film industry. It seems top stars are competing with each other to star in the Telugu remake of the film, which stars Jayam Ravi and Nayanthara in lead roles.
After an impressed Ram Charan had expressed his desire to act in the film’s remake, it now seems superstar Mahesh Babu has been approached to play the lead in Mohan Raja’s entertainer.
“Mahesh had seen the film on Sunday and was impressed with it. Though he is yet to give his nod for the project, it is likely to happen as the makers are keen to cast him,” revealed a source in the know.
In the Tamil version, the protagonist Jayam Ravi plays the role of an IPS officer and if Mahesh indeed agrees to act in the film, it would add to the long list of movies – including Pokiri, Dookudu, and Aagadu – where he played the role of a cop.
Mahesh meanwhile, is all set to join the sets of his upcoming family entertainer Brahmotsavam, directed by Srikanth Addala.
