While a plethora of South stars not restricted to any language are not shying away from making their debut in Bollywood, one man maintains his stand and is firm about making similar choices – The star who gave two back to back hits in “Dookudu” and “Businessman”- Mahesh Babu.
These 2 hits have put Mahesh Babu back into the top position in Tollywood, but he firmly believes and stands to say that Bollywood is not meant for him and he is happy doing only Telugu Films.
The star who recently brought and shifted to his new house says that he wants to take Telugu Cinema to the world and wants a lot of people to see it and appreciate it. The response that he gets from his viewers is awesome and he wouldn’t like to sacrifice it for Hindi cinema where there is no fame guaranteed for South actors.
There were rumors that Mahesh Babu has been approached to play the role he essayed in Businessman in its Hindi remake, the talks which are on. But he clarifies his stand and says that he is not interested in Hindi Cinema at all.
The star also said that he is currently working on a multi-star project with actor Venkatesh and the soon to be released film would be a trendsetter in Telugu Cinema.
Mahesh Babu has been married to Hindi actress Namrata Shirodkar. Apparently the star forgot his wife’s birthday amidst the successes of his films and was cool to express his concerns on Twitter.
So while Bollywood has seen South stars like Sudeep (Kanada), Vikram (Tamil), Surya (Tamil) and even Telugu stars, they surely are going to miss the man riding high at the moment.
We only hope that the star re-thinks his decision at a time when his other counterparts are making it count.
