Mahesh Babu fans have a reason to cheer. The Prince of Tollywood, whose fame spans across the country with his remarkable acting prowess as evidenced by blockbusters Pokiri and Businessman, is now drawing international attention.

Popular Bollywood actor Bill Duke, known for his roles in Predator and Commando, in a tweet on Sunday requested Mahesh Babu for a meeting over lunch in Los Angeles to discuss about collaborating on an international spy movie.

Here’s the tweet of Bill Duke

In a tweet that preceded the earlier tweet, the Hollywood actor asked directors A R Murugadoss, Vamsi Paidipally and also Mahesh Babu to stop by in Los Angeles for lunch to discuss about working on an international detective story.

In the same breath, Bill Duke extended his invitation to director and Superstar Rajnikanth’s daughter Aishwarya Dhanush for lunch to discuss international programmes for promoting women’s education.

Overwhelmed by the Hollywood offer to their favourite actor, Mahesh Babu’s fans are sharing Bill Duke’s tweets widely across various platforms on social media. They are requesting their star actor to take a plunge into Hollywood. However, it remains to be seen if Mahesh Babu laps up the offer and goes on to work wonders in Hollywood.

The Tollywood actor is currently vacationing with family in Paris. He is expected to be back for the promotion of his upcoming movie titled Maharshi, which is currently in the post-production phase.

It seems times have changed. Unlike earlier when Bollywood monopolised the ‘Indian cinema’, international stars and directors are now noticing and acknowledging the good cinema that is coming up in south India. Thanks to magnum opuses such as Bahubali and 2.0, international film lovers are drawn to movies produced in south of India.
