Mahesh Babu and NTR Jr are two of the leading superstars in Telugu cinema and it was very unique to see NTR on the audio launch of upcoming film ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’. Launch happened in Hyderabad at LB stadium and NTR took front row and sat right next to Babu for the entire duration of speeches and performances. Both of them are massive stars though Babu is more global than NTR hence commands films of bigger scale but NTR is certainly living up to the name and caters directly to the hard core Andhra Pradesh audience.
In a general scenario, both of them should be considered as rivals but NTR’s gesture of showing up and supporting the film would be recorded as a sporting one in history. Both of them have never worked together and won’t be anytime soon because NTR is going to start his film with SS Rajamouli that also stars Ram Charan. Babu was also in talks to work with Rajamouli but their film might start after ‘RRR’ is released and be declared as a potential blockbuster that it is being touted as.
Songs of the film are out and they are rocking the chartbusters already with ‘I Don’t Know’ sung by Farhan Akhtar. Babu has a lot riding on this film as far as career is concerned because his last two films were massive flops and were considered as dead on arrival. Failure is more noted when a lot is at stake and his last one ‘Spyder’ was literally the biggest film from Telugu cinema after Baahubali franchise. Babu worked on phenomenal budget and the film was not received well. Right on the failure of Spyder comes ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ knocking on the door as one pure mass commercial potential blockbuster which has to hit the bulls eye.
