Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu has always left his fans amazed with every new film. The handsome hunk has faced several ups and downs in career but nothing has stopped him from giving his best. But today, his superstardom in Telugu cinema is insane and unmatchable. His latest release Maharshi, barely in 5 days has managed to enter Rs 100 crore club. The film, directed by Vamshi Paidipally opened to positive response and is minting huge numbers at the Box Office.

After seeing some ups and downs in his career, Mahesh Babu is currently on his biggest career high and is celebrating the success of his recent release film like a boss. In an exclusive candid conversation with Pinkvilla, Mahesh Babu expressed his happiness over Maharshi success, wife Namrata Shirodkar being supportive, kids Gautham and Sitara's reaction to the film and more. 

EXCERPTS FROM THE INTERVIEW: 

Back to back hits, Maharshi is yet another different film touching a serious social issue. What's the success mantra? 

I try to do films which excite me and fortunately Maharshi is one such film. I’d like to thank my director Vamsi Paidipally for approaching me with such a layered subject. 

Pre and post-release buzz of the film is insane and it has made its way to 100 crore club worldwide already. How does it feel?

It feels great honestly! All my best hits and their collections we have surpassed in just 4 days...it’s like I’m competing with myself :) it’s a good thing (He smiles).  

Is there any kind of pressure with every film as the audience always has high expectations.  

Pressures are there for every actor for each film as we all work with the same zing on each film and hope it’s a blockbuster .. so the pressure is huge and only gets more with each film. 

On the eve of the release of Maharshi, Namrata Shirodkar posted an encouraging note for you along with a very cute picture of you two. She has also been a part of Maharshi in some or other way. What do you have to say?

Namrata is a very supportive and encouraging person as well as extremely critical of all my work ...having said that she’s my balancing factor at times when I’m in doubt .. however it is, it works out (He smiles). 

Your kids' reaction to Maharshi? 

My kids simply loved the film and Sitara watched it in our home theatre and said some scenes made her very emotional (He laughs) she was so genuine in her comments ....my son was extremely proud of me.

Wow looks like some ppl are expert in diagnosing depression just like that than psychiatrists . Lame

they are very sweet people I have met them on their trip to NY and they are the best! both love each other endlessly tbh

Honestly, I was talking to my partner about how depressed she looks on her Instagram account. She can put all the happy pictures she likes, but I don't think she is truly happy.

We too felt the same.

Chal jhootha
