The box office king and Prince of Tollywood is none other than Superstar Mahesh Babu. He earned an immense fan following in different parts of the world. The entire nation is talking about 'Maharshi'. We are just a few days to see Mahesh Babu on screen after a gap of one year.
Mahesh fans are pretty excited and they just can't be calm ahead of the movie release. Advance booking tickets of 'Maharshi' have been opened on ticketing platform BookMyShow.
Most of the tickets for the first show have been sold out in most of Telugu states. The credit to this achievement can also be attributed to Victory Venkatesh and Vijay Deverakonda, who were a part of the movie promotions at the 'Maharshi' pre-release event as the Chief Guests. Mahesh fans from all corners of Telangana attended the event. With his mind-blowing speech, Mahesh Babu enthralled his fans at the event.
Rumours are flying thick and fast in social media circles that Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu is feeling insecure. Mahesh Babu's name draws a lot of attention on the global scene. His popularity has reached unprecedented heights, thanks to his movies, performance and looks.
Also, he is one of the highest paid actors in the country. One cannot deny the fact Mahesh Babu is one of the highest paid stars in the Telugu film Industry. Now, back to what is being talked about in social media.
Is Mahesh Babu really insecure? The norm in the industry when it comes to events events related to films of upcoming actors, big stars make an appearance for their events to promote it and encourage talent.
We have often seen smaller stars or even friends of Mahesh Babu inviting him over to promote their films.
So, when newly established star, also the current sensation in the industry is invited to promote a superstar's film, it certainly raises eyebrows.
Now, you must have guessed by now what we are referring to. Yes Vijay Deverakonda is only a few movies old in the industry but certainly made a mark for himself. Now, him being invited to Mahesh movie event has set tongues wagging on social media. People are wondering if Vijay Deverakonda is a bigger star than Mahesh Babu? Inviting Venkatesh seems justified as he is a senior actor in Telugu and his presence would definitely help grab eyeballs.
Now, the talk is has Mahesh Babu's market dropped that he had to depend on these upcoming stars for promotion to his upcoming films? We don't think so. we all know Mahesh Babu's fan following or his movie business is unbeatable by any star. Vijay Deverakonda may have reached greater heights but it would take him a long time to reach the stature of Mahesh Babu.
So it's probably only a good will gesture. Or do you think there's something more than what meets the eye?
On the career front, Mahesh Babu is awaiting the release of 'Maharshi' which is all set to arrive in theatres on May 9. The movie is directed by Vamsi Paidipally and co-produced by Dil Raju, Ashwini Dutt. Pooja Hegde and Allari Naresh would be seen in key roles along with Jagapathi Babu in an antagonist role.
