Tollywood Superstar Mahesh Babu will team up with Bollywood director Farhan Akthar - For a cause not for a film. Farhan launched an own campaign called "MARD" (Men Against Rape and Discrimination) to condemn crimes against women. The campaign would be launched all over the country with a poem written by his father Javed Akthar. Farhan wants to spread awareness and reach out to maximum people through this campaign. So he thought Mahesh Babu would be apt for the Telugu version as he has strong fan following and Mahesh will certainly add value to this. Sources close to Farhan say that Mahesh gave a nod to this proposal and he will take part in recording of the poem shortly.
Also Farhan seems to be very serious about this campaign and wants to reach out to other states as well. Sources say that the poem has already been translated in Urdu, Marati and Bengali languages and still trying to rope in few other celebrities to spread the campaign in other languages. Let’s wait to see how the poem and Mahesh’s voice over would be like for this campaign.
