Mahesh Babu, who acted in Sukumar’s cult film 1: Nenokkadine also shared a picture of them both on social media.

Wishing you happiness and good health always.” (sic) While Mahesh Babu will soon be seen in Parasuram Petla’s Sarkaru Vaari Paata, shooting for which is yet to begin, fans of the MB-Sukumar combo left comments under the post, hoping the duo team up again someday.
