Way back in 2010 Sekhar Kammula made a political thriller titled “Leader” that saw the emergence of a star Rana Daggubati. Now the director is mulling upon the idea of making its sequel. And the star he has in mind to play the lead is Mahesh Babu.
“Leader” went on to become one of the few films to earn the accolades of the critics and also become a sensational success at the box office. It is also said that a private channel which had acquired the satellite rights for the film finds its TRP ratings going through the roof whenever the film is aired. After all these years the director wants to make its sequel and has begun the task of penning the story and script to suit Mahesh Babu. The director will soon meet with the hero to discuss the project. Industry watchers wonder if Mahesh will accept the role because the film he is doing right now “Bharath Ane Nenu” under the direction of Koratala Shiva is also a political thriller. Will the hero like the idea of doing two films in the same genre within just a few months of each other? We just have to wait and see.
