Finally, Prince Mahesh Babu Goes Home to Burripalem

After adopting a village in Telangana but doing no such thing in his own native land, Telugu film star Mahesh Babu arrived in his ancestral village of Burripalem in Tenali mandal on Sunday to a rousing reception from the people. He promised to take up charitable work here too, mainly focused on health and education.

Braving the hot sun, people lined the streets, crowded the terraces, and clambered atop trees as Mahesh, accompanied by his father Krishna and his brother-in-law Galla Jayadev, the MP for Guntur, drove to their old house in the village. Security guards held off fans eager for a handshake with the star.

"I was last here after completing my debut movie Rajakumarudu and now I'm back to do something good," he said in a two-minute chat with the media.

The star's last big hit Sreemanthudu dealt with a rich young Samaritan who adopts his village and does good things for the people. It aimed to stir the social conscience of well-heeled people. In keeping with that sentiment, the star adopted Siddapur village in drought-hit Mahbubnagar district in Telangana. It raised questions why he wouldn't something similar in Andhra Pradesh, from where his father went on to become a major matinee idol himself.
