One of the most loved actors in the Indian film industry, Mahesh Babu has an immense fan following on social media and is the most followed South Indian Superstar on the internet. After the roaring success of Bharat Ane Nenu, Mahesh Babu is all set to work on his 25th film. The actor has already begun shooting in Dehradun, Uttarakhand.
For his last outing Bharat Ane Nenu, Mahesh Babu not only garnered immense appreciation from critics and audience but also broke major records at the box office.
Mahesh Babu's popularity, not just in the southern markets, but in the entire nation as well as overseas is not a hidden fact. Bharat Ane Nenu, political thriller garnered startling reviews and was also one of the highest grossing movies and biggest hits of 2018 including Bollywood movies. Another testimony of the same is the news of his last release garnering a whopping 22 crores for its satellite rights.
This kind of an amount for a Telugu film is rarely heard of. It is the perhaps the highest that any Telugu film has received till date (leaving aside Baahubali). The actor has been influential through his movie choices, Bharat Ane Nenu being one of the highest openers.
