Two top leading Kollywood directors Manirathnam and Shankar have showed interest to work with T-town superstar Mahesh Babu, because they like his screen presence and his measured performance which Shankar openly admitted at the audio function. These two directors have worked with best of Tamil actors like Kamal, Rajni, Vikram but have soft corner for Dhookudu star and that quite interesting to discuss.
Going by the praises heaped by Shankar on Mahesh for his realistic performance in Dhookudu, which is otherwise a commercial entertainer, shows their love for his larger-than-life persona and body language. Inadvertently, both these top filmmakers have also approached Mahesh for their big ticket films (Mani’s offer Guru and an historical), while Shankar wanted him for south remake of 3 Idiots, but Mahesh couldn’t accommodate dates for these highly-talented directors. May be, they could some time in future, but their admiration for Mahesh is quite evident and even Mahesh shares mutual respect for them. A film with Mahesh-Shankar would be mind blowing?
