Mahesh Babu, the resident 'Prince' of Telugu cinema, is arguably one of the biggest and most popular mass heroes in Tollywood. The Spyder hero is loved by all and sundry due to his bindass nature and gripping screen presence. Now, he is in the limelight for a sweet reason. Today (October 2), on Gandhi Jayanti 2019, Mahesh Babu remembered 'Bapu' and thanked him for uniting the country.
"A salute to the man who led us to Freedom - of thought, word and action. Remembering the man who brought us together in the fight for our freedom. #GandhiJayanti #Gandhiat150 #Respect," (sic) tweeted Mahesh Babu.
Following Mahesh's passionate tweet, the 'Prince Army' too remembered Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary.
On the work front, Mahesh Babu was last seen in Maharshi, which did pretty well at the box office despite receiving mixed reviews. The movie, featuring Pooja Hegde as the female lead, revolved around farming, which helped it click with the masses. Maharshi also impressed the Vice President of India Venkaiah Naidu, who called it a tribute to the rural population.
"By portraying a rural theme, the film highlights the need for farm conservation and support for the elderly. Maharshi is a remarkable film that everyone needs to watch. It showcases the glory of the rural population and the importance of agriculture," (sic) Naidu had tweeted.
