In what could be considered as North meeting South, Bollywood star Ranveer Singh and Tollywood Prince Mahesh Babu have collaborated on a project! This is for the first time that the duo is sharing the screen space.

Well, the two stars in their respective industries are not working in a movie rather teaming up for a commercial. Yes, they have reportedly collaborated for a Thumbs Up ad for which they are brand ambassadors.

Mahesh Babu's wife and former actress Namrata Shirodkar revealed the above photo on her Instagram account and captioned it, "N that's a colour splash!!thumbsup charged !! . [sic]"

Mahesh Babu has been associated with the brand for years now, while Ranveer Singh replaced Salman Khan as the brand ambassador last year.

Ranveer Singh and Mahesh Babu are in California for the ad and the picture of the two stars posing for a camera has now gone viral. However, official confirmation is awaited.

Casting them together for a commercial is considered to be a good idea given their popularity among the youths and this development is expected to thrill their huge fan base across the globe.

On the professional front, Mahesh Babu is busy with Bharath Ane Nenu, a political thriller written and directed by Kortala Siva. Whereas Ranveer Singh's forthcoming movie Padmavati has marred in controversies after protests over the alleged depiction of the Rajput queen.

The movie, which was scheduled for release on December 1, will now hit the screens in February 2018.
