Mahesh Babu’s name is the first among those who rejected this film. It is said that this film of director Sukumar was offered to Mahesh Babu. It is said that Mahesh Babu was not ready for the role of gray shades in this film and hence he refused to do it. According to the reports, Mahesh Babu prefers to keep himself away from roles that have tremendous makeovers, perhaps the reason behind this is that his fans are crazy about the actor’s good looks. In fact, in the year 2003, Mahesh Babu experimented with his onscreen look in the film Nijam, which was not liked by the people and it is said that since then he is not ready to compromise with his looks.
However, when the film released, he could not stop himself from praising it. Director Sukumar had told during the promotion that he had narrated the story to Mahesh Babu which was based on red sandalwood smuggling. However, this thing was a bit old and when the work on the project started later, the story changed. He told that he wanted the attitude in his lead character so the story had to be changed a bit as he could not make him look cool.
