‘Not cashing in on mahesh babu’s popularity’

Debutant director Sushanth Reddy says forthcoming Telugu release Superstar Kidnap, a crime-comedy about kidnapping Mahesh Babu, is a conceptual film not intended to cash in the popularity of the star actor.

“When you watch films like Being John Malkovich, you realise that these are stories about real people that are fictionalised. Our film falls in such a category. When you watch the film, you will understand what we’ve tried to attempt,” said Reddy.

“It’s about three youngsters who have come to a certain situation where they decide to kidnap Mahesh Babu. It’s about the circumstances that evolve out of the kidnapping and how the characters come out of it,” he said.
