Sekhar Kammula who has directed the political drama film, ‘Leader’ with Daggubati Rana has offered the script initially to Prince Mahesh Babu. However, Mahesh has turned off the offer since there are no action sequences and it does not suit his image. Sekhar had later chosen Rana for the lead role and this was one of the big banner film for Sekhar so far.
The film left as an average film and there is also talk that Sekhar Kammula cannot handle big heroes. Mahesh Babu must be happy with his choice now.
