No takers in overseas for Mahesh Babu Maharshi

No takers in overseas for Mahesh Babu Maharshi

Mahesh Babu enjoys huge fan base not only  in Telugu states but also in USA. His disaster movies have also done decent business in USA but this time there is no takers of Mahesh Babu starrer Maharshi in USA. As the movie is scheduled to hit the theaters on 9th May, the promotional activities have been started. But there are no takers for the overseas rights of Maharshi. The producers of Maharshi initially quoted Rs 18 Cr for theatricals in USA. So distributors did not show interest and did not come forward to buy the rights at such high price. The producers are waiting for a decent offer to close the deal. As the release date is fast approaching, the makers of Maharshi are now trying to give away the rights at-least for Rs 12 Cr.

It is said the makers of Maharshi are trying as hard as possible to sell the film in overseas, if not they might release it on their own.

 Maharshi is Mahesh Babu’ 25th film, which is directed by Vamsi Paidipally of Oopiri fame and is bankrolled by  C. Ashwini Dutt, Dil Raju and Prasad V. Potluri, under the banners of Vyjayanthi Movies, Sri Venkateswara Creations and PVP Cinema. The film stars Mahesh Babu, Pooja Hegde in the lead roles, and it has the music by Devi Sri Prasad.

 Pooja Hegde is playing the love interest of Mahesh Babu in  Maharshi. Apart from the lead pair, the film has other stars lik Meenakshi Dixit, Sonal Chauhan, Allari Naresh, Jagapathi Babu, Rajendra Prasad, Sai Kumar, Prakash Raj, Naresh, Jayasudha, Posani Krishna Murali, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Rao Ramesh, Naveen Chandra, Brahmaji and Rajiv Kanakala in supporting roles.
