“There is no competition for Mahesh Babu. If it comes to me nobody will go beyond Mahesh. I’m intentionally saying that Mahesh is my favorite actor. If you give options like Akhil, Chaitanya and even my uncle Nagarjuna beside me I just choose Mahesh only. I’m a big fan of Mahesh Babu from starting itself”.
