Wherever ‘Maharshi’ team is going it is claiming that this is a landmark movie by Mahesh Babu. In terms of collection, the film looks okay. Controversial director Ram Gopal Varma has made sensational comments about this movie. It is common for Varma to say something whenever a film hits the screens. He said he has no knowledge of villages and agriculture fields and hence he never made films on stories based on farmers. He also said he does not try to give message through his films.
He wondered if anybody would have watched ‘Maharshi’ if it had no Mahesh Babu in it. He said film lovers come to the movies for hero, songs and comedy scenes. However, viewers who are watching ‘Maharshi’ for entertainment are saying after coming out that the film has a message. He made the comments during a press meet held in Vijayawada about his movie ‘Lakshmi’s NTR’.
