Mahesh Babu, the Telugu superstar, made waves a few days ago when he said, "Bollywood can't afford me." Several people in the film business, including Kangana Ranaut and Boney Kapoor, have spoken out over his remark. Veteran actor Dalip Tahil is the most recent addition to the list.
The legendary actor is presently promoting the Netflix release of his film Toolsidas Junior. He asserted that the south Indian film business gets significantly more organized and well-oiled machinery than the Hindi film industry while promoting the picture on the sidelines.
"In my honest view, when @urstrulyMahesh (south megastar) claims Hindi movies cannot afford him, he is most likely talking to the work ethic, where I agree with him..more power to Mahesh Babu," Dalip Tahil earlier tweeted in support of Mahesh Babu.
In a follow-up tweet, the seasoned actor commented on his work ethic. "What I meant by work ethics, I still stand by it," he stated. When Mahesh Babu declared, 'Hindi films can't afford me,' he probably refers to the pay, but it was also about (something else)... You must realize that Mahesh Babu is a national celebrity, not simply in the Telugu cinema business. He is a megastar with a pan-India following. You must realize that when he is in a situation where he is not in charge and has a limited grasp of how the project works, it will be tough for him."
