Krishna Vamsi is directing Srikanth’s 100th film titled Mahatma written by Parachuri Brothers.
According to sources, Chiranjeevi wanted to act in a political film before he formally announced his entry into politics and founding Praja Rajyam Party.
Parachuri Brothers wrote a political film titled Adhinayakudu which was meant to be Chiranjeevi’s last film before his plunge into politics. VV Vinayak was to direct this film.
However, Chiranjeevi decided not to make that film and started his active political career.
Tollywood sources say Adhinayakudu story has now been titled as Mahatma with Srikanth, chela of Chiranjeevi, playing the protagonist in the film.
The film Mahatma is said to depict and reflect the policies and programmes of Praja Rajyam Party.
Tollywood sources say that the veracity of this news lies in the fact that Chiranjeevi himself sounded the clap for the muhurt of Mahatma.
