It is widely known and accepted that Superstar Mahesh Babu has always worked with the best combinations of directors in Telugu film industry. His filmography is a testimony.
In a career spanning over two decades, Mahesh Babu has only worked once with a debutant. And yet, there have been instances where he has brought directors into the limelight or taken them to the next level of stardom. We take a look at three of those names, which also turned Mahesh Babu’s career.
The first name is also a game-changing one for Mahesh Babu. Gunasekhar was a proven director with several flicks before Okkadu. And his pace suggests the disastrous result of Mrugaraju might not be an issue. But, the epic failure surely dented his reputation big time. With Okkadu, not only did Gunasekhar bounces back; it also established Mahesh Babu as a star.
After a dream debut, Puri Jagannadh really came into his own with Itlu Shravani Subrahmanyam and Idiot. He did not look back since then until the roadblock came with much-hyped Andhrawala. Successive failures followed it. Luckily for him, Pokiri followed them. Not only did Puri hit back with a vengeance, and attained next level of stardom, the movie established Mahesh Babu as Superstar.
Srinu Vaitla has been working with second league heroes since his debut. His first major biggie proved to be a setback. Vaitla bounced back with Dhee but again was not able to deliver the blockbuster with star heroes. And then, Dookudu happened. Both the director and Mahesh Babu benefitted with success. For the first time in his career, Mahesh Babu set opening day and week records. Srinu Vaitla reached the peak of his career, as well.
Will Parasuram join the same league is the question, now?
Ever since a film with Mahesh Babu, Sarkaru Vaari Paata, has been announced, Parasuram has become the talk of the town. There is a positive buzz around him and the project. Will he join the league of the directors mentioned above? We have to wait and see as there is a long time before it hits the screens.
