Premalu, the Malayalam rom-com set in Hyderabad, which has been winning the hearts of audiences since its release that has enabled it to break into the coveted Rs 100-crore club, has added a new member to its burgeoning star fan club. Days after Telugu actor Nagachaitanya took to social media with words of praise for the Telugu dubbed version of the film, superstar Mahesh Babu has joined in.


Mahesh wrote on social media that he’d gone and watched Premalu with his entire family and that everyone loved it. “Can’t remember the last time when I laughed so much while watching a film,” tweeted Mahesh, adding that the acting by all the youngsters in the film was absolutely top class. The actor also thanked SS Karthikeyan, the son of filmmaker SS Rajamouli, for bringing the film to Telugu audiences. Director Aditya Haasan had taken charge of the Telugu dialogues of the film.

Directed by Girish AD, Premalu had released in its original version in Hyderabad, which was very well received, prompting Karthikeya to pick up the dubbing rights and bring the film to a larger section of the audience with a Telugu version. The film, which stars Naslen K Gafoor in the lead, revolves around his character, Sachin, a rather aimless engineering graduate, whose first attempt to head to the UK for higher studies fails and then heads to Hyderabad to spend time on GATE coaching until he can apply for a visa again.

While in Hyderabad, he meets Reenu (Mamitha Biju), a junior developer in an IT firm and develops feelings for her. And while she likes him too, she’s unsure of letting her feelings develop into something more serious, as she has certain priorities in life, and Sachin does not exactly fit the profile. The film, which released in Telugu on March 8, is now set to hit theatres with a Tamil-dubbed version as well. This current pan-south appeal for the film has pushed its OTT release ahead.
