Mahesh Babu says better to do a film that works

Ace actor who is also known as Price of the Tollywood filmdom Mahesh Babu is entertaining us with his latest release titled as Srimanthudu. This film is touted to be released on August 7th.


Telugu film superstar Mahesh Babu feels it’s safer for stars like him to do commercial films as lot of lives depend on big-budgets projects such as his.

Mahesh has had his share of flops in his career. But he treats success and failure on par.

Mahesh told, “A hit film is what we work for as actors as that goes to show that we have managed to entertain our audiences who shower us with their love and affection throughout the years”.

He said, “It’s better to do a film that works. I try to work on a film that my audiences would appreciate and enjoy their time in a theatre. Also, a lot of lives are dependent on one film that we make, so a successful film only makes those families happier”.

Mahesh added, “Pressure is part and parcel of our career. I’m under pressure with all my films. And the reason we are always under pressure is because it’s only in our profession that months and even years of hard work is judged by the first show on Friday”.

He said, “No good actor ever stops learning. He is constantly evolving. From my first film to now it has been a very interesting journey. Over the years, I’ve learnt from co-actors, directors, technicians and even from junior artists. Even today I enter the sets like it’s my first day of shoot”.

He told, “It’s an interesting concept treated commercially. When director Koratala Siva pitched the idea a year ago, I quite liked it. It has something for everybody. My character Harsha is quite different from all the roles I’ve done so far in my career”.

He said, “Starting a production house was mainly to give my producers (the actual producers of our film) a free hand in terms of the scale of the film and not to compromise on quality during the making”.

He said, “The script of the film is such that it will work in both the languages without having to change much. And it’s precisely why we’ve decided to make it as a bilingual”.

He concluded, “Our entire film fraternity should be proud of ‘Baahubali’. These are the kind of films that are not made very often. It was Rajamouli sir’s vision and passion that made all this possible”.
