There was buzz that Namrata had flown back to her Mumbai home from Hyderabad with their son. Mahesh Babu was therefore making frequent trips between Mumbai-Hyderabad so that he could spend as much time as he could with his son. Rumours were rife that Namrata had left for Mumbai because there were problems in their marriage. But it seems all is well now and he has succeeded in placating her.
Namrata is actress Shilpa Shirodkar"s sister and is an ex-Miss India. She acted in films like Pukar and Pran Jaaye Par Shaan Na Jaaye but somehow despite being extremely pretty and a decent actress, success always eluded her. When she went down South to do a film opposite Mahesh Babu, they fell in love and it resulted in marriage.
Mahesh Babu's super hit film Pokkiri is being remade in Hindi as Wanted and it stars Salman Khan playing the role made famous by Mahesh Babu who is also fondly called as Prince.
