Mahesh Babu made headlines recently when he spoke about his Bollywood plans — more specifically the lack thereof. At the trailer launch of Major, a film he is producing, Mahesh Babu was reported as saying that Bollywood simply could not afford him. As per India Today and other media reports, Mahesh Babu said, “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 is huge, so I never really thought of leaving my industry and going to some other industry.” Read all about it here.
