Maharshi is creating a lot of records, even before its worldwide release. The movie is eagerly awaited as Superstar Mahesh Babu admirers want to see him after his hugely successful political drama, Bharat Ane Nenu (2018.)
All the multiplex and single screen bookings in the two Telugu states were sold out within 5 minutes of the opening of the bookings. This shows the popularity and reach of Mahesh Babu. Maharshi is also special as it throws light on the travails and tribulations of the farming community and the way the corporate world and the state should address them.
Maharshi is an ambitious venture produced by Dil Raju, C. Ashwini Dutt and Prasad V. Potluri, under their home banners, Sri Venkateswara Creations, Vyjayanthi Movies and PVP Cinema. Maharshi stars Pooja Hegde and Allari Naresh in pivotal roles, apart from Rajendra Prasad, Jagapathi Babu and Prakash Raj. The music score of Maharshi is by Devi Sri Prasad.
