Mahesh Babu seems to have developed fascination to work with top-notch cinematographers.
He has roped in Santosh Sivan for 'Spyder' and later brought in Ravi K. Chandran of 'Dil Chahta Hai' fame for 'Bharat Ane Nenu'. However, Ravi K Chandran walked out of the project midway when he had differences with Koratala Siva.
Still, Mahesh Babu is continuing to show interest to work with Bollywood cinematographers.
Bollywood popular cinematographer K U Mohanan who has worked with many of Shah Rukh Khan movies that include Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017), Raees (2017) and "Don" (2006) will now cranking camera for Mahesh Babu's 25th film.
Interestingly, Mohanan was Mahesh Babu's personal choice. The film's director Vamshi Paidipally first signed P S Vinod who did camera work for 'Oopiri".
As he developed special friendship and bond with Vindo, Vamshi Paidipally announced Vinod as cinematographer and took him to USA to scout locations.
However, Mahesh Babu wanted a bigger cameraman. Thus Mohanan stepped in, say sources.
