Bollywood can't afford me, I don't want to waste my time: Mahesh Babu

During a recent media interaction at the trailer launch of Adivi Sesh’s Major, he opened up about making his debut in Bollywood. He highlighted that the Hindi film industry ‘cannot afford him’, so he wouldn’t waste time doing a Hindi film.

The star actor is curiously waiting for the release of his upcoming film, Sarkaru Vaari Paata, directed by Parasuram Petla, the movie will hit the screens on May 12.

“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 [in South] is huge, so I never really thought of leaving my industry and going to some other industry. I have always thought of doing films and becoming bigger. My dream is coming true now and I can’t be happier,” he added in a statement.
