Mahesh Babu got a bumper offer from producer Jemini Kiran, who is currently making '3 Idiots' remake in Tamil with Vijay as hero. Earlier, Mahesh Babu was reluctant to do the movie due to its cast; he was again approached by the producer and was offered an unbelievable remuneration. The producer requested him to give 60 days of continuous call sheets to finish the project in Telugu in a single schedule. Mahesh Babu has now decided to start working on the movie straight away after his 'Dookudu' and he is going to postpone 'The Businessman', which was supposed to start after 'Dookudu' under the direction of Puri Jagannadh.
Now, the question is how much amount was offered to Mahesh Babu that tempted him to change his plans and jump into this new project. Though it was not known officially, Mahesh Babu's fans are confidently saying that it is 12 Crores. If that is true, then it is an all time record price for any Telugu actor so far.
