Telugu film-star Mahesh Babu on Thursday said every film lover should be proud of S.S. Rajamouli’s epic war drama “Baahubali”, adding that the film’s success was crucial for Telugu cinema.
“All of us should be proud of ‘Baahubali’. We should pray that the film turns out to be a blockbuster as its success is very important for our industry,” Mahesh told reporters in Hyderabad.
Mahesh Babu, better known as Prince among his fans was speaking after being named the goodwill ambassador of Rainbow Children Hospital.
Mahesh’s “Srimanthudu”, which was earlier set to release on July 17, exactly a week after ‘Baahubali’ hits the screen, has now been postponed to August 7.
“We didn’t postpone our film because we were scared to compete with ‘Baahubali’. I think it deserves to a solo release and we should respect it. It’s healthy to have two or three weeks’ gap between big releases,” he said.
