The very foundation of your stardom lies on the patronage and affection you receive from the public and it is only then that you become such a huge star and successful celebrity. However, when you try to maintain distance from the same people who made you what you are it is not fair. This is more when you are a superstar.
For many years, superstar Mahesh Babu has been maintaining a very private image and hence his presence during public events or other occasions was quite rare. It was nothing short of a festival for his fans to see him onscreen but then they used to feel the pinch of not being able to see him as much as they want to.
But now things have changed and Mahesh seems to have realized the importance of interacting with fans and understanding the ground level scenario of what the public wants. It is heard that he has been quite proactive in posing for pictures and is showing initiative to meet up with fans. This is indeed a commendable move Mahesh, keep it up!
