Mahesh is currently busy with the shooting of Trivikram Srinivas's SSMB 28. After wrapping up the film, he will start prepping for Rajamouli's film. In a recent interaction, Mahesh Babu said, "It’s a dream come true for me to work with him. Doing one film with Rajamouli garu is like taking up 25 films at once. It’s going to be physically demanding and I’m really excited about it. It’s going to be a pan-India film. I hope we break many barriers and take our work to audiences across the country."

On the work front, Mahesh was last seen in Sarkaru Vaari Paata, while SS Rajamouli is basking in the success of his period drama, RRR that had an ensemble cast of Ram Charan, Jr.NTR, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran and others.
