There have been rumours for a while that Mahesh Babu will be acting in a film, based on the life of Pullela Gopichand and his brother in law and actor Sudheer Babu will produce the film.
But Sudheer Babu has confirmed that neither Mahesh Babu is doing that film, nor he producing it.
"Mahesh doin as pullela gopi isn't true & I am not producing it either. However I & praveen sattaru want to do a film on gopi's life & I will be playing as gopi. as of now not sure wen this will go on floor", Sudheer Babu wrote in his microblogging page.
It is a common knowledge that Sudheer Babu and Pullela Gopichand are very good friends and even played badminton together as doubles partners.
