Mahesh Babu has a huge weight behind his voice as he is the Superstar of Telugu Cinema. He has a huge following but the actor stays away from politics and political subjects.
When Koratala Siva said that he would be playing in his film, the actor laughed out loud it seems.
Koratala Siva, the director of 'Srimanthudu', accepted to do another film with Mahesh Babu for DVV Danayya.
He met the actor after Janatha Garage and told him the story of Bharat Ane Nenu. Mahesh Babu as he is completely not interested in Politics, did not care Siva seriously.
But when Koratala Siva convinced him with the subject, the actor accepted the movie and gave Bharat Ram character life on large screen.
Koratala Siva also shared that if the movie will talk about current political scenario, it will be highly controversial, so he decided to make it all fiction and a story when United Andhra Pradesh existed.
