I assume only TFI stars like #MaheshBabu are allowed to sell Pan Masala products, while the rest are abused for doing the same. Nice double standards😒 @Its_CineHub— J.P.S (@TheJ_P_S) May 12, 2022

Speaking at the trailer launch, Mahesh Babu had said, “I may sound arrogant, I did get a lot of offers in Hindi. But I think they can't afford me. I don't want to waste my time. The stardom and love I have here in Telugu cinema, I never thought of going to another industry. I always thought I will do films here and they will become bigger, and my belief is turning into a reality now. I can't be happier.” ALSO READ: Kangana Ranaut Reacts To Mahesh Babu’s ‘Bollywood Can’t Afford Me’ Remark, Says ‘Ye Toh Unhone Sahi Kaha. I Agree With This’
