He must have feared putting on weight, like the dialogue in Srimanthudu goes, "Entho Kontha Tirigi Icheyali, Ledante Laavu Aypotham" (We must give back atleast a little or we will put on weight).
Apparently, the actor has decided to give back a little to Srimanthudu director Koratala Siva, who is the main pillar behind the success of the film.
Mahesh Babu has reportedly surprised Koratala Siva by gifting an Audi A6 to him last night. Soon after leaving from Akhil audio launch, the actor drove the director to Audi showroom and handed over the car keys to him.
The director said to have gone speechless and stunned by the Superstar's gesture. Namrata Mahesh, who took care of the promotions of the film largely was also present at the place.
Srimanthudu has been a special film to Mahesh for so many reasons, especially, for the blockbuster it has become after a couple of duds. Co produced by Mahesh, it has fetched 100 crores at the box office and stood tall next to the all time industry hit, Baahubali.
