There are reports that Mahesh Babu is opting out of the 3 Idiots Telugu remake because of date problems as he is now busy with the shooting of Dookudu. According to sources, Mahesh is serious about not doing the film as all the co-stars are from the Tamil field and the final out put may look like a Tamil dubbed version.
However, negotiations are said to be going on between the producers and Mahesh Babu. The female lead is to be played by Ileana and she is confirmed.
The remake is being produced by Gemini Circuit and directed by Shankar. The shooting should have started this month but is postponed.
