Mahesh Babu has made a big sacrifice for Rajamouli, say reports. He has apparently turned down the opportunity to star in one of Indian cinema's biggest projects ever so that he can collaborate with Rajamouli in the near future.
As per Bollywood reports, Mahesh Babu rejected the advancements from Bollywood producer Madhu Mantena who was planning on roping in Mahesh Babu for the role of Lord Ram in Ramayan.
The producer initiated talks with Mahesh Babu a few months ago. However, reports suggest that Mahesh Babu has turned down the offer as he wishes to remain focused on Rajamouli's project.
'If Mahesh had to allot dates for Rajamouli's project without any hassle, he had to turn down Ramayan. This was the logistical equation. Mahesh, who has been waiting to collaborate with Rajamouli has only one option in mind and he clearly picked Rajamouli over Ramayan,' the report read.
Ramayan will be mounted on a large scale and Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan has also come on board for the project. Mahesh Babu could have easily taken the big step and signed for the project. He would have even pocketed a hefty remuneration. But he decided to let go off the offer in order to work with Rajamouli. He sure did make a big sacrifice for Rajamouli.
