Regional media has quizzed him about his comments on Hindi debut. “I did get a lot of offers in Hindi, but I don’t think they can afford me. I don’t want to waste my time working in an industry which can’t afford me. The stardom and the respect I get here [in the South] is huge, so I never really thought of leaving my industry and going to some other industry. I have always thought of doing films and becoming bigger. My dream is coming true now and I can’t be happier,” he had said.
“Mahesh Babu has clarified that he loves cinema and respects all languages. He said he is comfortable doing the film where he has been working. Mahesh said he is happy to see his dream coming true as Telugu cinema is going places,” his clarification press note now reads.
Meanwhile, Mahesh has also clarified that his next with SS Rajamouli will be a Pan India movie. So, Mahesh has put rumours to rest in his own style. Mahesh’s answers should be taken with a pinch of salt but that’s about it.
