Salman has always shown interest in Mahesh Babu's movies, we can see that by the list of movies he has remade in Bollywood. The latest advertisement of lead cola drink, where Salman has replaced Mahesh Babu, confirms his strong interest in everything Mahesh. Salman once had also mentioned that Mahesh is his favourite south star.
When asked Mahesh Babu to comment on this, he said, "Salman suits the best in his remakes." When asked if he would be interested in remaking any Bollywood film, he said, "I do not make remake movies."
Hmmm... looks like our Okkadu hero does not like following anybody else's footsteps. Does this mean shooting a shirtless scene has nothing to do with Salman? Or is it?
