The trailer of Maharshi has been released on Thursday. just a week before the film is to be released.
And there is a very good reason for why the trailer was delayed to almost the last minute.
According to sources in the know Mahesh Babu and his director Vamshi Paidipally wanted to keep the film’s theme, songs and inter-relations under wraps till the last minute.
“See, in terms of plot Maharshi is one of the simplest most transparent stories Mahesh Babu has ever done. There are no sub-plots, no lengthy song and dance breaks. This is the story of an Indian hero , a brilliant IIT student , who wants to own the world but finds himself drawn back to his roots.And Mahesh Babu had nothing to hide in this film. Once the film’s trailer is out the audience knows exactly what to expect. The excitement this time around Mahesh Babu lies in the expected, not the unexpected,” says a source very close to Mahesh babu.
In fact the promotion of the film will also be very minimal.
“It’s going to be cut-to-cut . Mahesh Babu has taken off for a European vacation with his wife and two children . He will be back just before the release of Maharshi. So the publicity and promotion are going to remain minimal. Maharshi is a film that will do all the talking for Mahesh Babu,” says the source.
