Mahesh now adopts a village in Telangana too

The village adoption idea was also part of the actor’s recent film, Srimanthudu

Mahesh Babu is all set to adopt yet another village — and this time, in Telangana. Some months ago, Mahesh announced that he will be adopting his ancestral village of Burripalem, in AP. And last night on Twitter, he revealed his latest move, to adopt one village in the district of Mahbubnagar.

While the inspiration behind taking up Burripalem was AP CM Chandrababu Naidu’s ‘smart village’ programme, the latest adoption plan follows a phone call from TS IT minister K.T. Rama Rao.

Mahesh took to Twitter to explain. “Very Humbled after receiving a congratulatory call on the success of Srimanthudu from Minister PR&RD, @KTRTRS. He suggested I adopt a village from the most backward district of Mahbubnagar as part of their #GramaJyothi initiative. I said YES :) more details to be announced soon,” the actor said.

The village adoption idea was also part of the actor’s recent film, Srimanthudu. Sources say the star was keen on bringing the idea into real life. But more importantly, Mahesh is also giving both the Telugu states an equal status.

The actor even credits Srimanthudu for making him “more human”. “Srimanthudu is a special film for many reasons. Gained immense respect and love from all my fans. The SmartVillage initiative led by AP CM Chandrababu Naidu garu prompted me to adopt my own village, Burripalem. This would not have happened without the support of my brother-in-law, Jaydev galla, MP from Guntur,” he added on Twitter.
