Mahesh Babu recently hogged the limelight when he said, “Bollywood can’t afford me”. His statement spread like wildfire on social media portals. His remark stirred a massive controversy earlier this week.
Amid the controversy over his remarks, the star actor also explained his opinion while interacting with the Telugu media during the promotions of his Sarkaru Vaari Paata movie that hit the screens on May 12.
Clarifying his remark, he highlighted that he always wanted to do Telugu movies. He has always wished for Telugu films to do well across India. At the same time, he felt that there is literally no point in going to another industry by leaving the Tollywood industry.
Meanwhile, he further added that he is extremely happy that his films are reaching North India. “I have always wanted to do Telugu films. And I have always wished for Telugu movies to do well across the country.
I strongly feel, why should we go to another industry by leaving ours behind? I am very happy that our films are reaching there (in North India). Our movies are doing well at the pan-India level and my dream is coming true,” Mahesh added.
When asked whether he would make his Bollywood debut, he said, “I don’t need to do Hindi films. I can just do a Telugu film and it’ll get seen all over the world – that’s what’s happening right now. You’d want to be in a position to do (only) a Telugu film,” he had said then.”
SRK’s polite reply to a reporter’s query on ‘Hollywood Debut’ goes viral
Amid Mahesh Babu’s controversial remark on Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan’s polite reply to a reporter’s query on Hollywood debut has been doing the rounds on social media.
“Mr. Shah Rukh Khan, you’re the greatest Bollywood celebrity, but what about Hollywood?” a reporter asks in the video. .. Have you considered working in the dream factory? “My English is not excellent,” SRK responded to this query.
“Maybe if they cast me as a dumb person who doesn’t talk… ” “I’m not trying to be modest, but I’m 42 years old, a bit brown, I don’t have any specific USPs as an actor, I don’t have any specialty as an actor, I don’t know kung-fu, I don’t dance the Latin salsa, I’m not tall enough,” the actor continued. Anyone my age in the Western world, I’ve watched some of the newer European films, and I’ve also seen a lot of what you term the dream factory pictures.
I believe there is no room for me, no place for me because I do not believe I am that talented. I’d like to stay in India and, perhaps, introduce Indian cinema to the rest of the globe. That’s the goal I’m aiming for.”
