Mahesh recently returned from a long vacation in Europe which he had along with his family. He will soon join the sets of director Trivikram Srinivas’ movie, which has been tentatively titled SSMB28. The project will mark the reunion of Trivikram and Mahesh after a gap of 12 years. The duo have already delivered hits like Athadu (2005) and Khaleja (2010).
