Mahesh Babu On His Eternal Youth, 'Ask My Wife Namrata Shirodkar, She Feeds Me Well And Looks After Me' -EXCLUSIVE
Telugu superstar  Mahesh Babu  who turned 44  last  August  looks 23. Compliment him on his  eternally youthful appearance  and he  smiles, “Thank You. To be honest I don’t feel  my age. I exercise regularly and eat healthy  , and think  positively,  nothing more. There is no secret formula  to looking young. Ask my wife. She feeds me well and looks after me . A disciplined  life free of self indulgence and vices…I guess that’s the  formula. This doesn’t mean I don’t have fun in life. I do! But  I am not telling you how and when.”

 Mahesh Babu looks back at  the  year with satisfaction. “The last year has been amazing .Maharshi was a huge success and I started my next film  Sarileru Neelkevaru which I’m enjoying working on.We also launched my clothes  label The Humble co. and I will be wearing it as much as I can. My wife Namrata is handling the creative  side of it . So all in all its been a very satisfying and substantially great year for me .I  feel extremely happy and blessed . It is a remarkable  year with some  lows in  my family.”

 Mahesh recently  shot in Kashmir. “It was a great experience shooting in Kashmir .We were there for nearly two weeks .I had immense support from the army officials and the people of Kashmir . They were very very kind warm and hospitable .It  was  a memorable  experience.”

 Mahesh feels he  must  now continue his  endeavour  to  find new challenges as an actor. “I  have always said I want to be part of good cinema and entertain my audiences as much as I can . They should remember me by the films I do .And in the process if I can impact their lives in a positive manner in any possible way I’d consider my job done well .”

 Mahesh agrees, he has been  lately leaning a more politically relevant cinema. “I would like to only say that being an actor comes with a set of responsibilities to your fans your  society and yourself. I’m extremely passionate about my craft and respect my job immensely .”

 Mahesh Babu’s message  to his  fans : “I would like to thank each and everyone of my fans and all the people who have shown me so much love and showered me with their blessings and want to say that whatever I am today is because of their unconditional  love for me .. and I’m truly grateful for it.”

Besides  spending time with his wife and children  how   did Mahesh spend his time  during the lockdown. "I have been doing many things . But what makes me  specially happy is that  I’ve done the one thing that I wanted to do  for  the  longest  time .I’ve learnt swimming during this lockdown with my children  Gautam  and Sitara."

Have he  been eating and sleeping  more than usual? "Not really. I am a very self-disciplined  kind of guy.No vices, no  excesses! I’ve been exercising, eating well and catching up on my sleep,  but not too much of it.I  feel  the  lockdown has made me more disciplined . It’s back to the basics .

Mahesh and  his  wife Namrata  and their two children are catching up  on evergreen Hindi comedy films. “We sat together and saw Gulzar’s Angoor, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Chupke Chupke  and Sai Paranjpye’s Chashme Buddoor. Highly recommended during these  times of stress.”
