Leaving final shoot of SPYder midway, Super Star Mahesh Babu on Wednesday joined the sets of 'Bharath Ane Nenu' which is being directed by Koratala Siva. Mahesh Babu's first schedule covering some crucial scenes will be shot on the city outskirts.
For the first time Mahesh Babu will be seen in the role of a chief minister in Bharath Ane Nenu in a plot woven around patriotism, according to the industry sources.
His CM avatar is expected to surprise the fans. To keep Mahesh's avatar a secret till they officially release it, Koratala has instructed his team not to carry mobile phones on film's sets. A huge Assembly set is erected in the outskirts of Hyderabad to film important scenes featuring Mahesh as CM.
Sources said the makers of Bharath Ane Nenu are planning to release a teaser of the movie on the occasion of Prince's birthday on August 9 to enthrall his fans. However, an official announcement is yet to come from the filmmakers.
As Mahesh has already suggested Koratala to wrap up the movie by November end or December first half so that it can be released for Sankranthi next year, the hat-trick director planned shoot schedules accordingly.
Meanwhile, Mahesh Babu's fans are eagerly waiting for the release of SPYder. Mahesh has completed the film's talkie part but he is yet to shoot for two songs. He will be back on SPYder sets in July or August to finish those two pending songs. He will then focus his attention completely on Bharat Ane Nenu.
