Superstar Mahesh Babu is apparently suffering from this problem – too much trust on his directors. Perhaps, this is costing him in big way and has backfired now. Mahesh Babu usually has a habit to rely on his directors- be it Srinu Vytla or Puri Jagannadh. Of course, fact of the matter is every hero or actor does it. But looks like, Mahesh gave total freedom to director Sukumar for ‘1’. Result? The director couldn’t pull it off and now the whole burden of film is back on Mahesh’s shoulders and he is trying to carry it further.
Buzz is that for canning one action sequence in One, Sukumar took nearly 20 days. But still Mahesh was behind the director. Mahesh would have done two movies within the time he spared for One. (The extended schedule of One in London itself is more than 70 days whereas it can be recalled that Mahesh finished the whole film ‘Businessman’ in 67 days). And the end result is not on par with Mahesh’s previous films. Looks like, it’s time for Mahesh to change his game plan. He can trust his directors at the same time, he need to estimate their strengths and weaknesses. Hope Mahesh’s Aagadu would nullify One.
