Sources say that Babu has loved the idea of the entertainer and action-comedy that will be produced by Ashwani Dutt. The producer had launched Babu in the South.

The source adds, “Raj and DK have been talking to Babu since a while now. Their recent release Go Goa Gone is also doing well in the South and Babu has seen how the youth has appreciated the content. Initially however he was a bit apprehensive about doing the film in Hindi but now he is more confident with Raj and DK helming the project. The duo are also from Hyderabad.”

The director duo confirm the buzz and state, “Babu has loved the script. However, it is too early to comment on anything as we are still working out the details.”
