Who does not know Mahesh Babu in India? Well, even the public in the North knows him as a superstar, thanks to the various telecasts of his dubbed movies on satellite channels in Hindi.
Sarileru Neekevvaru, Mahesh Babu’s army drama, in which he plays Army Major Ajay Krishna, is currently in its first schedule of shooting in Kashmir. The local press, which found out about this, chased Team Sarileru Neekevvaru for an interview with Mahesh Babu.
The star, as affable as he is, obliged to a short one on one interview.
One of the press reporters posed a tricky question to Mahesh Babu as to whether he will ever do a cult mass film with a raw and rugged look.
Mahesh gave an extremely honest answer, explaining his cult status and how he should strive to protect it. Mahesh replied, he is a star who should strive to bring every section of audience to his movies, every time he does one. If he is cast in an out and out mass role, his staple family audience would not come to see him. Mahesh added, it is never easy to bring family audience to movies which are mass masalas.
Moreover, over the years, Mahesh Babu, with his various movies, endeared himself to a family audience.
We could not agree more with Superstar Mahesh Babu.
