Mahesh Babu is Chennai Pokkiri!!
June 27, 2006
Andhra's latest heartthrob Mahesh Babu, who acted in films like Okkadu and Pokkiri, is in the city, shooting for his film Sainikudu. He spoke to media persons in the city, and said, "I am currently working in Sainikudu, with director Gunasekhar. Our combination has delivered super hits before, like Okkadu (Tamil Gilli) and Arjun. I hope our success march would continue in this film also."

For the uninitiated, Mahesh Babu is very much a Chennaiite. He was born and brought up in the city, having done his schooling in St Peters at Santhome and completed his graduation from Loyola College. "My father Krishna is a well known actor cum director who has produced many movies. In fact, I take pride in the fact that my house in Chennai was right opposite Chevalier Sivaji's house in T. Nagar."

Having entered Tollywood in 1999, Mahesh Babu is now a name to reckon with. Visibly happy with the near 100-day run his 12th film Pokkiri received in Chennai, Mahesh Babu harbours dreams of acting in Tamil films someday. "I admire directors like Manirathnam and Shankar and am awestruck by their filmmaking talents."

If Gilli proved to be a super hit, being a remake of Okkadu, then Mahesh Babu wishes Vijay all the luck for the remake of Pokkiri in Tamil. "Like Gilli, this will also be a super hit. My advance wishes for Vijay."

A little different from regular stars, Mahesh Babu is completely against fan clubs. "I never encourage fan clubs. My movies are just to be seen and forgotten. I don't endorse fan clubs, or encourage milk abishekam's, erecting cutouts, etc."

Two years back, he met and fell in love with popular model and actress Namrata Shirodhkar, who quit acting after marriage and is now expecting a baby. Mahesh Babu, a man with simple needs and fancies, we wish him all the luck in his career.
