Superstar Mahesh Babu on Monday revealed that he will be adopting Siddhapuram village in Telangana as part of the initiative to give back to the society, inspired from the reel story of his latest blockbuster Srimanthudu.
"After much thought @KTRTRS garu and myself have chosen to adopt Siddhapuram village of Kottur mandal in Mahabubnagar district (sic)," Mahesh posted on his Twitter page.
It was at the behest of Telangana Minister for Panchayatraj, Rural Development and Information Technology K.T. Rama Rao that Mahesh Babu decided to adopt a village.
In Srimanthudu, Mahesh Babu played the heir of a multi-millionaire, who adopts his family's village and sets out on a journey to transform it.
On the other hand, Mahesh earlier has announced that he will be adopting his own village, Burripalem in Andhra Pradesh and he is expected to start transforming the villages some time soon, with a clear strategy to follow.
