A few months ago, Mahesh Babu announced his next film titled Sarkaru Vaari Paata, directed by Parasuram. While the makers revealed the title and a theme poster, the rest of the cast and crew remain to be revealed. However, speculations are being made as to who will play all the lead roles. Keerthy Suresh is rumored to play the female lead in the film. Now, a new report has come out stating that the film will feature Bollywood actor Vidya Balan in a Key role.
It was recently rumored that Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor was approached by the makers to play the lead antagonist. Some reports also suggested that the makers had initially negotiated with Kannada actor Kichcha Sudeep for the main antagonist. However, this did not happen due to non-availability of actor dates. Sarkaru Vaari Paata will be directed by Parasuram and bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers. The film marks the reunion of Mahesh Babu and S. Thaman seven years later.
Mahesh Babu was last seen in the action-thriller film Sarileru Neekevvaru. Directed by Anil Ravipudi, the film had Rashmika Mandana as the female lead. Sarileru Neekevvaru proved to be a huge hit at the worldwide box office. Meanwhile, Mahesh Babu is actively spreading awareness messages on social media for the ongoing pandemic COVID-19.
