Mahesh Babu is a doting father to his kids - Gautham Ghattamaneni and Sitara Ghattamaneni. The actor often shares adorable photos with his kids on Instagram and that speaks volumes of the bond that he shares with him. The actor is all set to appear in the upcoming episode of the Telugu talk show, Unstoppable. During the show, he spoke about the experience of holding his son Gautham, when he was a premature baby.
In the special promo, Mahesh Babu also spoke about the journey behind getting over 1, 000 heart surgeries done free of cost for needy children.
"Gautham was born six weeks before as a premature baby. When I first held him, he was just as big as my palm. Now, Gautham is almost 6 ft tall. We had the money so we could take care of Gautham but what about those who couldn't afford. I always wanted to do something for children. That's how this thought of working with children was born," said Mahesh. ALSO READ:Mahesh Babu Tests Positive For COVID-19 With Mild Symptoms; Actor Says, 'Can't Wait To Be Back'
