Mahesh Babu has always been the most popular star in Tamil Nadu from the current lot. He has benefit shows throughout the Chennai city for every film. In other words, he holds a decent market in Tamil. That’s the probable reason why Maniratnam and Shankar earlier tried to make a film the Superstar and AR Murugadoss has already made one. But the failure of Spyder has caused a serious damage to Mahesh Babu’s reputation in Tamil Nadu. Will he loose everything there soon?
Brahmotsavam is arguably the worst film of Mahesh Babu’s career. The film received pathetic reviews like no other star film in the recent past. It was a nightmare at boxoffice. Who would dare to dub this film into Tamil now? But Bhadrakali films, the same company which distributed Mahesh Babu’s previous films into Tamil, will now be releasing Brahmotsavam into Tamil.
The Tamil version has been titled as Anirudh with a caption “The Good Samaritan”. Let’s wait and see if or not this film receives a better talk in Tamil Nadu. Anyhow, trade expects the same washout like what happened in Telugu market.
In other news, Mahesh Babu’s Bharath Ane Nenu is reconfirmed for April 27th release. The Superstar will next join Vamsi Paidipally and Trivikram Srinivas for Mahesh 25 and Mahesh 26.
