Mahesh Kumar has got an opportunity to direct a film that will have a pan-India presence. The movie will be made by Sony Pictures in collaboration with Vishnu Induri, the founder of SIIMA, who is creating a platform for talented youngsters.
Induri has asked them to come up with a subject and a lead cast from their respective industries.
The other debutant directors include Ajay Bhupathi from Telugu cinema, Nelson from Tamil cinema and Zakariya Mohammed from Malayalam cinema. Kumar is planning to rope in a famous Sandalwood actor for the film. However, the decision about who will play the lead will be taken later, depending on the actor's commitment to the project as well as other factors.
Mahesh will take the project forward only after wrapping up "Mada Gaja", a film produced by Umapathy and starring Sriimurali. The film will commence shooting in September and the team is expected to finish it by February.
