Mahesh Babu as a Counter to Chiranjeevi?—LOL

A couple of days back i was shocked to see this news in The Hindu paper. The news piece had an interesting photo—Krishna, Mahesh Babu’s father, seeing [read reviewing] the posters being designed for Mahesh’s birthday on August 2nd [Chiru’s birthday is on August 22nd]. The rumors/analysis doing the rounds in Andhra Pradesh is that the Congress party has strategic interests in promoting Mahesh Babu as a counter to the Mega Star Chiranjeevi. In other words, Mahesh will be projected as the next mega-star. To put it bluntly, Mahesh Babu is a baby, not even a kid, compared to what Chiranjeevi is and who Chiranjeevi is.

Without a doubt, Andhra Pradesh right now offers the most exiting political playground. Speculations, rumors, different new parties wanting different states, film stars entering politics, fans getting involved, and the list goes on. As part of this political playground, the news of projecting Mahesh as a counter to Chiru is amusing, but plain foolish. Looks like the Congress in AP wants to do what Congress at the center did—pitch SRK against the Big B (the Congress and Big B, once the closest of pals have split). The result?—ridicule for SRK.  There is ofcourse a difference here—SRK was foolish enough to announce that BigB’s era is over and this is his, but Mahesh has more sense. Mahesh has in the past accepted Chiru’s stature and i hope that sense still rests in him.

Chiranjeevi fans, who are restless, will only be ignited further by this development. Mahesh fans, post-Pokiri have projected their hero as a counter to Chiru in the movie arena and looked foolish. Now, they will look like clowns if they take this further. If Mahesh Babu’s previous statements are any indication then he is a highly balanced individual and will not get trapped into this silly strategy.
