Mahesh Babu summoned by a court in Srimanthudu copyright case
Tollywood star Mahesh Babu’s Srimanthudu became one of the highest-grossing films in his career but it is also creating enough problems for the actor. Murugadoss is taking his own sweet time to complete the project, given that there is a lot of expectations from his maiden project with Mahesh. Mahesh’s next film with Siva has been titled Bharath Ane Nenu, a political thriller that will hit the screens early next year. The espionage thriller is nearing completion and soon the post production will begin. Novelist M Sarat Chandra had moved the court earlier this year alleging that the filmmakers of Srimanthudu have copied his work without giving due credit to him. Sarat had also requested a city civil court to issue an injunction against remaking the film in Hindi.
