Mahesh Babu is one of those few South Indian Stars who could make it big in Bollywood. He enjoys good fan following in North India as well. He, however, kept restricting himself to South India only, Tollywood to be precise. Some of his films, dubbed in Tamil and Malayalam, hasn't done well. He has almost stopped reaching out to Tamilians and Malayalis after poor results and that's not the right path.
One wonders why didn't Mahesh Babu attempt Pan-India Flick so far. Inspite of receiving offers from the Hindi Film Industry, He didn't show the courage to give Bollywood film a try till date. Superstar kept waiting for SS Rajamouli to make a Pan-India Movie with him. The Ace Filmmaker have other commitments and he have plans to direct his dream project (Mahabharat) which could be in 3 to 4 parts. An epic film like Mahabharat can't be made in an year. At least, 5 years has to be spent for the completion of the franchise. There is even a possibility of shelving his project with Mahesh Babu if Rajamouli feels Mahabharat should be made soon after #RRR.
Instead of waiting for SS Rajamouli, Mahesh Babu need to seriously focus on doing Pan-India Films with other talented filmmakers. 'KGF' is a classic example to say wonders can be created if we make the right choices. Even 'Saaho' directed by an upcoming filmmaker is making the heads turn. It's time for Superstar to take few risks!
