Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu enjoys tremendous fan following and be it film makers and politicians, all try to use his name to boost their image. Right after the sensation of ‘Srimanthudu’, his stardom increased in leaps and bounds. The powerful social message sent by Mahesh Babu in ‘Srimanthudu’ connected chords with not only fans but also movie lovers and also celebrities from all fields.
Expectations increased on his film ‘Brahmotsavam’ directed by Srikanth Addala. This because ‘Brahmotsavam’ happened to be Mahesh’s next after ‘Srimanthudu’ and Mahesh earlier teamed with Srikanth Addala to score a blockbuster in form of ‘Seetamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’. ‘Brahmotsavam’ which was expected to break all non Baahubali records bombed at the box-office shocking everyone.
From then on everyone started trolling the film for taking movie lovers for granted. Mahesh Babu who is extremely sensitive did not recover from the shock and even after vacation did not come out to appear in public. Even for Filmfare and Cinemaa awards Mahesh did not turnup. What rubbed salt to the injury is little known dubbed film ‘Bichchagadu’ starring Vijay Antony did well replacing Mahesh’s ‘Brahmotsavam’.
Many started making fun of Mahesh’s ‘Brahmotsavam’. Now TRS leader Rasamayi Balakishan known for his controversial speeches shocked all by saying he loved the concept of ‘Bichchagadu’ though he did not know the hero Vijay Antony and took potshots at Mahesh Babu’s ‘Bramotsavam’ saying ‘Brahmotsavam’ turned ‘Bichchagadu’. All Mahesh fans are up in arms but they couldn’t but wait for their hero’s next to shut the mouths of the critics.
