Mahesh Babu seems to be the star of not only Indian Telugu industry, but also of USA Telugu market. With his unique smile and unlimited talent, Mahesh Babu’s film Athadu was the first film that showed the signs of Telugu cinema potential in USA. His next hit in the form of Pokiri was such a universal hit that it was well-loved by both the movie lovers from USA as well as from the downtrodden villages in AP. Pokiri went on to became the first blasting Telugu hit in overseas. After a period of 5 years, Mahesh Babu’s Dookudu turned out to be 1st Telugu film to cross 1 million USD gross in USA.
