Last week, Telugu actor Mahesh Babu said that he does not want to do Hindi films as “Bollywood cannot tolerate him”. His statement is trending tremendously and from the makers of Hindi cinema to the stars are also giving their respective feedback on it. However, some are speaking in his support, while others are making rhetoric against him. After Mukesh Bhatt, Suniel Shetty, Kangana Ranaut, now the reaction of filmmaker Boney Kapoor has come on his statement, who has produced both Bollywood and South Indian films.
Mahesh Babu may have his reasons.
Reacting to Mahesh’s statement about Bollywood, Boney Kapoor told The Indian Express, ‘I cannot comment on this as I belong to both Bollywood and the South. I have done films in Tamil and Telugu and will soon do a Malayalam and a Kannada movie. So I am not the right person to react on this. Also, Mahesh has the right to say whatever he feels. He feels that maybe Hindi film cinema may not be able to tolerate him, so he may have his own reasons for saying so. Everyone has their own opinion as to who are we to comment? I am the last person to comment on this. If he feels that way, it is good for him.
Mukesh Bhatt wishes Mahesh Babu
Before Boney, filmmaker Mukesh Bhatt had reacted to Mahesh’s statement in an interview to India Today. He had said, “It’s great if Bollywood can’t pay the price for him.. My best wishes are with him.. I respect where he comes from.. He has talent and he gives an ‘X’ value for that talent.” Keeps what he has generated over the years..He is a successful star and keeping in mind what he wants to achieve in terms of satisfaction of our films, if Bollywood doesn’t live up to his expectations, in this nothing is wrong. My best wishes are with him..’
Mahesh Babu said these things on the question of not appearing in Hindi films
It is worth mentioning that when asked why he does not debut in Bollywood, Mahesh gave this answer. In an interview last week, the Telugu superstar had said, “I may sound arrogant, but I have got a lot of offers in Hindi but I think they can’t stand me. I don’t want to waste my time. The stardom and love that I have got here in Telugu cinema, I never thought of going to another industry. I always thought that I will do films here and they will grow up, and my faith is turning into a reality now. I couldn’t be happier. Mahesh’s film Sarkaru Vaari Pata has been released in theaters on 12 May. He is one of the biggest stars of the Telugu film industry. Some of his hit movies are Businessman, Srimanthudu, Bharat Ane Nenu, Maharshi and Sarileru Neekevvaru.
