A section of media has reported that the storyline for Sukumar's next with Mahesh has been finalzied. They even claimed that it is going to be a period film.
However, our sources denied the reports and clarified that Mahesh is not keen on doing the subject narrated by Sukumar.
The Rangasthalam director has narrated a storyline set in Razakars backdrop to which Mahesh isn't excited.
With many actors trying out period films, Mahesh felt that it would be monotonous by the time this film finishes.
Also Mahesh is not interested to do a potential controversial film with Razakars movement as the backdrop.
Meanwhile, Sukumar has readied another concept based script which suits the image of Mahesh. Sukumar will narrate the story once Mahesh returns to Hyderabad.
He will start the pre production work if Mahesh likes it. Therefore, nothing has been finalized as of now.
