Superstar Mahesh Babu is not only a popular star but also a crowd puller in Telugu states. Mahesh Babu who made his debut as a child artiste was introduced to the film industry as the son of veteran actor Superstar Krishna who ruled TFI in the 80s.

Recently, Mahesh Babu completed his 25th project with 'Maharshi' which went on to become a huge money-spinner at the box office. Looks like Mahesh Babu is now trying to become a pan India sensation.

We just overheard social media asking if Mahesh is walking the footprints of Prabhas? As you all know, Prabhas's latest release Saaho earned poor reviews from critics. Prabhas got lukewarm response from the Telugu audience. But Hindi audiences have welcomed him with open arms, which means they are accepting him. Prabhas earned the Pan Indian star title after the massive success of Baahubali franchise.

A while back, there were reports that Prashanth Neel who rose to fame with 'KGF' was planning a Telugu debut. Now, it appears that the news is finally turning true because Prashanth Neel is said to have met Mahesh Babu at the latter's residence on Sunday afternoon. Their meeting lasted for more than one hour, it is learned.

Prashanth Neel narrated a plot that struck a chord with Mahesh Babu, if a report doing the rounds is anything to go by. If things go as planned then the duo would be teaming up next year. What's interesting about the project is that Prashanth Neel is planning to make this a pan Indian project.

On the career front, Mahesh Babu will next be seen in 'Sarileru Neekevvaru' which is slated for release next year during Sankranthi. Directed by Anil Ravipudi, the film also stars Rashmika as the female lead along with Prakash Raj in a pivotal role. Watch this space for more.
