Actor Tamannaah Bhatia is believed to have been signed to perform a special number in Mahesh Babu’s upcoming Telugu action drama Sarileru Neekevvaru (2019).

Currently busy dubbing for her character in Syeraa Narasimha Reddy, Bhatia is expected to shoot for the song later this month in a special set. The song will be filmed on Bhatia and Mahesh Babu.

She has performed to special numbers in the past in films such as Alludu Seenu (2014), Speedunnodu (2016), Jaguar (2016), Jai Lava Kusa (2017) and KGF: Chapter 1 (2018).

In Sarileru Neekevvaru, Mahesh Babu plays an army Major. Last month, the first glimpse of his character was unveiled via a special video.

The project, being produced by Dil Raju and AK Entertainments, marks the maiden collaboration of Mahesh and Anil Ravipudi.

The film also stars Rashmika Mandanna and veteran actor Vijayashanti, who has returned to face the arclights after 13 years.

Vijayashanti is rumoured to be playing a professor in the film. "After 13 years, it's makeup time for Vijayashanti garu. Nothing has changed in all these 13 years. Same discipline, same attitude and same dynamism. Welcome on board Vijayashanti garu," the director tweeted, sharing a picture from the sets.

Meanwhile, Mahesh’s last release Maharshi (2019) grossed over Rs200 crore at the box office. The film, which also stars Pooja Hegde, featured Mahesh in the role of a multimillionaire who takes up farming for the sake of his best friend.

Mahesh Babu also has a project with Kabir Singh (2019) director Sandeep Reddy Vanga in the pipeline. If everything goes as planned, this yet untitled film will go on the floors from next year.
