Reading the headline might take you by surprise because there is no mention of superstar Mahesh Babu entering politics or contesting in the upcoming elections. Your reaction is very well understood so here is the clarity which would set the account straight.
We are talking about the well known Facebook critic Mahesh Kathi who is also a director. Reports say the YSRCP party is showing interest in Mahesh Kathi. It is heard that he is getting calls from the party with an invitation to contest for the MLC seat in 2019 elections.
Mahesh caught the attention of YSRCP as he gained popularity by speaking against the Jana Sena founder Pawan Kalyan in an interview and receiving the curse from Power star fans. His recent participation in the Bigg Boss show has also contributed to his popularity quotient.
