From a couple of days, internet is buzzing with the rumour that Superstar Mahesh Babu is in talks with Andhra Pradesh government to become the Brand Ambassador of the state. Ever since KCR declared Sania Mirza as Brand Ambassador of Telangana, such silly demands and rumours about AP Ambassador too started doing rounds.
Insiders say that Chandrababu Naidu himself is a bigger and better Brand Ambassador for Andhra Pradesh than anyone else in Andhra Pradesh provided with his past-work and vision. With KCR being a completely unknown face at national level industrial and business circles, he might have paid a crore for Sania to act as brand ambassador. But for AP there is no such need as Naidu is at the helm. If at all Mahesh takes up such a chance, undoubtedly his fan base in Telangana will get hurt and his films will bear the risk. Because Telugu heroes, especially big stars, will be playing key role in both the states but not limited to any particular state.
Some political observers say that if at all people like Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna take up such brand ambassador stuff, TRS led Telangna government might not remain silent about the land-issues of these heroes in Hyderabad. In view of this, it is better to not take sides in the name of working for a cause. For movie stars, signing up as a brand ambassador will be too risky and cost a bomb.
