Mahesh Babu fans are rejoicing all over after laying their eyes on the official first look poster of his upcoming film Srimanthudu. The actor himself tweeted the poster, which reads a birthday wish to Telugu superstar Krishna. Not only does Mahesh look handsome as ever, the fans can see him in a rather humble avatar riding a cycle wearing casual attire. Now while everyone is puzzled as to why an actor of Mahesh’s stature is riding a bicycle, we bring you a shocking truth behind it!
Reportedly the cycle that the Agadu actor is riding costs a whooping amount of Rs. 3.5 lakhs approximately. If sources are to be trusted model of the bicycle is a version of Cannondale Scalpel Carbon, which is one of the most expensive luxury bicycles. Now you know why a superstar like Mahesh Babu is riding a cycle right? Even his cycle costs a fortune! Well it only makes sense, as the actor will be seen playing the role of a millionaire’s son in the film.
Srimanthudu is an upcoming Telugu film written as well as directed by Koratala Siva. Makers of the film were patiently waiting for actor Mahesh Babu to finish his previous film Agadu to start working on Srimanthudu. Film’s leading actress will be Shruti Haasan who has reportedly charged the highest remuneration of her career amounting to approximately 12.5 millions, for her first appearance opposite Mahesh Babu.
Produced by Y. Naveen, Y. Ravi Shankar and CV Mohan, the film also stars actors Jagapati Babu, Sukanya, Rajendra Prasad, Aamani, Angana Roy, Sanam Shetty and Sampath Raj in important roles. The film was supposed to release in the month of May but was postponed due to technical reasons. Srimanthudu will be competing with SS Rajamouli’s much anticipated filmBaahubali set to release on July 17, 2015.
