Superstar Mahesh currently hasn’t started promoting his film “Spyder” while films like “Mahanubhavudu” that are hitting cinemas post his film started making noise already. While Mahesh has his plans to promote Spyder, his debut Tamil film as he chalked a new scheme for Tamil audiences.
Reports are coming that Mahesh wants to tackle Tamil journalists in a different way than Telugu journalists are treated. These days, almost all the Telugu media folks get invited to one five-star hotel in Hyderabad, and all interviews will be given there only. But when it comes to Tamil media, Mahesh asked his PR team not to follow this routine, they say.
Mahesh will be taking part in individual interviews of Tamil TV channels at their studios and will be involved in some game shows and entertainment programs being hosted by them. Also if he misses out any journalist or any media house, his team will arrange air-tickets to them, such that they will meet him here in Hyderabad and take his bytes about Spyder. Along with Mahesh, his co-stars and crew will also take part in all these interviews. What a royal treatment this is, isn’t it?
What bothers Telugu media folks now is, how come similar treatment is not meted to Telugu film media? During Brahmotsavam promotions, many film journos are upset that Mahesh wrapped all the interviews at a five-star hotel and gave only 15 minutes each for every media house. Let’s see how it goes this time.
