Legendary actor Mohan Babu who is referred as Collection King by his fans is known for unique dialogue delivery and great performances throughout his career. He was last seen playing the title role in 'Son of India' which became a disaster at the box office. Prior to that, he did a special cameo in Suriya's 'Aakasame Nee Haddu Ra'. The 70-year-old actor will now be seen playing the role of sage Durvasa in the upcoming film 'Shaakunthalam'.



For people who know Mahabharatha, Durvasa Maharshi is quite familiar. The team has released a poster showcasing Mohan Babu in the look of sage Durvasa. He is looking great and he is one of the very few actors in Tollywood to pull off this role. Mohan Babu's presence is going to bring a lot of depth for this mythological drama.

As we know, star heroine Samantha is playing the title role and the trailer got a decent response. The makers have started the promotions and the team visited the Peddammathalli temple recently to seek divine blessings. Music is composed by Mani Sharma while 'Shaakuntalam' is written and directed by Gunasekhar. Neelima Guna produced this film while Shekar V Joseph is the cinematographer. Prawin Pudi is the editor while Sai Madhav Burra penned the dialogues.

Presented by Dil Raju, Dev Mohan will be seen as Dushyanta. Ananya Nagalla, Aditi Balan, Mohan Babu, Prakash Rah, Gautam, Kabir Bedi, Kabir Singh Duhan and others played key roles. Gunasekhar has directed this film.
