Superstar Mahesh Babu certainly belong to the rare breed of stars as he always tried his hand at experiments. Despite hailing from a superstar family who are known for churning out routine potboilers, handsome star Mahesh always followed his heart and tried his best to break monotony. Although, he faced more flops than hits in his brave journey, Mahesh never backed out of them. Closely observing Mahesh’s career, its seems bit true.
He began with Raja Kumarudu and went on act in different genres like Murari, to Takkari Donga and Nani to Bobby, unwilling to follow the stereotypical path, like other star sons or siblings. Even at the height of his popularity and career, he does a psycho thriller like One Nenokkadine and challenges himself which says it all. It shows how Mahesh is a gutsy fellow and even today he is open to experiments.
In fact, Mahesh’s veteran dad-yesteryear superstar Krishna is no stranger to experiments. Krishna has revolutionized Teugu films with the advent of technology and always used latest techniques to stay ahead of times. Krishna is credited with producing several technological firsts in Telugu film Industry like the first eastman color film Eenadu (1982), the first cinemascope film (Alluri Seetharama Raju), first 70mm film (Simhasanam), first DTS film (Telugu Veera Levara) (1988) and introducing cowboy and James Bond styles to the Telugu screen.
Usually, stars lose their stardom with experiments, but Kamal hassan in Tamil is an exception. Coming to Telugu both father and son duo Krishna and Mahesh Babu retain super stardom despite traversing a risky path. Like Father, Like Son. What say folks?
