Mahesh Babu to make Bollywood debut with The Businessman
By Subhash K. Jha, November 17, 2011 - 10:39 IST
Telugu cinema's no.1 star Mahesh Babu seems to have struck gold in Mumbai. He has started brushing up his shaky Hindi with the help of his wife Namrata Shirodkar.
Finally, after years of fobbing off offers from Bollywood, the actor is on the verge of a belated Hindi debut. While other offers including one from Kookie Gulati are being crystallized, it looks like Telugu's hottest director Puri Jagannadh who recently directed the Bachchan homageBbuddah… Hoga Terra Baap is all set to launch Mahesh Babu into Hindi films with the Hindi version of The Businessman.
Mahesh Babu is in fact in Mumbai right now shooting for the Telugu version of The Businessman. The film is being rush-completed for Pongol (Jan 14). The plan was to feature Abhishek Bachchan in the Hindi version, to be shot right after the Telugu version starring Mahesh Babu.
But Abhishek's dates have now gone into a major re-shuffle, thanks to the postponed schedules of some of his recent films. Mahesh Babu has now stepped into the Hindi version of the film.
Confirming this development, director Puri Jagannadh says, "Yes, Abhishek is no longer doing the Hindi version of The Businessman. Mahesh Babu would now be doing the Hindi version. We'll be shooting the Hindi version right after the Telugu version. He's now practicing his Hindi very hard. In fact both, he and I are trying to get a hang of Hindi."
