Mahesh25: Is It Inspired by 3 Idiots?

The shoot of Mahesh Babu’s 25th film is progressing at rapid pace. The movie recently completed its shoot in Dehradun and will it head to USA and Europe shortly.The latest buzz is that the film is partly inspired by Aamir Khan’s blockbuster ‘3 Idiots’. However, it is neither remake nor is it a completely copy.

Buzz says that Mahesh Babu’s characterisation is similar to that of Aamir Khan’s in the movie.In ‘3 Idiots’, Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Sharman Joshi had played three friends. In this film, Mahesh Babu and Allari Naresh are playing two friends.

However, this film is said to be dealing with more serious issues like farmers’ crisis and village development, etc. It is nothing to do with our educational system.Director Vamshi Paidipally earlier bought the remake rights of a French movie and directed a beautiful movie in Telugu ‘Oopiri’ with Nagarjuna and Karthi.

If he really wanted to make it based on ‘3 Idiots’, he would have bought the rights, a source says denying this speculation.

But some elements are inspired by this Bollywood flick, say close sources.
