Mahesh Babu: the man with golden heart
Mahesh Babu turned out to be the true inheritor of legacy from Superstar Krishna. All his producers vouch that he is the producer's hero. The kind of co-operation he is giving to Mr. Jayant during the production of untitled Cowboy film is amazing. When heavy monsoons marred to schedule of the film a couple of months back the production unit lost 23 days. The entire episode is again shot amidst the heat at Bikenir, Rajastan. Then came the second hurdle. The work permits for USA shoot kept on delaying. When Jayant planned to visit USA to take the matters in his own hands and arrange work permits, Mahesh Babu accompanied Jayant to do his bit of help. As the obtaining of work permits would take more time, Jayant and Mahesh are returning to India on 6th of this month. They would be completing the climax at Chelakudi forests, Kerala. The USA shooting of the film is going to be the final hurdle of the film, which is going to take place in September. Jayant feels that Mahesh Babu is the most responsible and kind hero among the lot. A true legacy inherited from his father Krishna.
