Mahesh Babu Explains His Tamil Connect
Mahesh Babu is currently busy wrapping his latest movie “Sypder” that is being directed by AR Murugadoss. Guess what, this is his first bilingual film and he’s making sure that Tamil audiences will roll out a red carpet for the film as the director is from Kollywood only. More than that, Mahesh has his only connect with the Tamil state and he explained it other day.
Sharing his thoughts with a leading Tamil magazine, Mahesh asserted that he could never forget his 25 years connect with Chennai. “I’ve grown up here for 25 years and studied at St Peters and Loyola colleges. Used to play loads of cricket here on these grounds. Tamil celebs like Surya, Karthi and Yuvan Shankar Raja are my schoolmates. Vijay is a good friend of mine”, shared Mahesh, revealing his Tamil connect. Though he can’t read and write Telugu and Tamil, he revealed that he’s a fluent speaker in both the languages.
What made Mahesh delay his Tamil debut for years? “Actually my plan is to debut in Tamil after Telugu films. As dad is a big hero in Telugu, Tollywood became my priority. Later I thought of debuting here too, but things never materialised including that film with Mani Ratnam sir. Finally, Murugadoss impressed me with his script during Srimanthudu shoot, and now we’re here”, he says.
