Mahesh Babu, the superstar of the South film industry, has a tremendous fan following. These days Mahesh Babu is in the news for his upcoming film Sarkaru Vaari Paata. This film is going to hit the theaters this week and at this time he is busy promoting his film. Meanwhile, he has said something about his Bollywood debut that will leave his fans shocked. In his recent interview, Mahesh has said that he does not want to debut in Bollywood because according to him people here will not be able to afford him.

The actor-producer, one of the biggest stars of Telugu cinema courtesy of his films Businessman, Srimanthudu, Bharat Ane Nenu, Maharshi, and Sarileru Neekevvaru, said rather than pitching himself as a pan-India actor, his aim was to make movies from South a countrywide success.


“I always wanted to do Telugu films and wished people across India would watch it. And now when that is happening I’m very happy. I always had this strong opinion that my strength is Telugu films and the emotion I understand is the Telugu film emotion. “Today the emotion is so strong, films have become so big that the lines have blurred and it’s become Indian cinema,” Babu said at the trailer launch of his upcoming production venture Major.

The 46-year-old actor said he has received numerous offers from the Hindi film industry, but he doesn’t feel the need to cross over. “I may sound arrogant, I did get a lot of offers in Hindi. But I think they can’t afford me. I don’t want to waste my time. The stardom and love I have here in Telugu cinema, I never thought of going to another industry. I always thought I will do films here and they will become bigger, and my belief is turning into a reality now. I can’t be happier,” he added.
