The list of directors includes Prasanth Neel, Sandeep Reddy Vanga, Surrender Reddy and Vamsi Paidipally. Though his next flick was supposed to be with Sukumar, that film went into the hands of Allu Arjun.
Prasanth Neel (KGF fame) will be working with superstar but not immediately as per sources. He is currently busy wrapping up 'KGF 2' and is also in talks with Jr.NTR. Sandeep Reddy Vanga was supposed to work with Mahesh but the director shifted his base to Mumbai after the huge success of 'Kabir Singh'.
Mahesh's 'Athidi' director Surender Reddy too is keen on coming together for a stylish action flick but the script isn't ready yet. Now, Mahesh is only left with his 'Maharshi' director Vamsi Paidipally. This director grew close to Mahesh during the shoot of 'Maharshi' and came up with another story which impressed Mahesh. So, trusted sources say that Vamsi is almost finalized as superstar's next film director.
