Actor Mahesh Babu thanked Vamshi Paidipally for patiently waiting for three years to make the forthcoming Telugu action drama Maharshi. The movie will hit theaters on May 9.
Mahesh said, “When Vamshi first came to narrate the script, I thought I'll listen for ten minutes and decline the offer, as I had two other commitments. After I heard 20 minutes of the narration, I wanted to do the film but told Vamshi he might have to wait till I complete my next two projects. He said he would wait, as he can't picture anyone else in this story. Vamshi patiently waited for two years and another year to start and complete the film. It's rare for a director to wait for such a long time with a good script. Usually, they wait for a couple of months and then find another hero to start their project. I'll always be indebted to Vamshi for waiting for me.”
It took actor Mahesh Babu two years to complete all his pending commitments and one more year to wrap up this movie. This movie happens to be the actor’s 25th film.
