Superstar Mahesh Babu’s forthcoming release Srimanthudu will be dubbed and released in Tamil as Selvandhan. Contrary to reports, the actor hasn’t dubbed in his own voice for the Tamil version due to his busy schedule. The decision to dub the film in Tamil was taken a month ago, courtesy the film’s cinematographer Madhie. In a recent interview, Mahesh said: “Since I was already busy with other commitments, I couldn’t take out the time to dub for the Tamil version. I hope to dub for Brahmotsavam, which will be my first straight Tamil film.”
Releasing worldwide on August 7, Selvandhan also stars Shruti Haasan, Jagapathi Babu and Rajendra Prasad in important roles. It is directed by Koratala Siva and has music by Devi Sri Prasad.
