When members of 106-year-old Relangi Satyavati garu’s family appeared on a local TV channel in Andhra Pradesh to let the world know the old lady’s last wish, Mahesh Babu’s team swung into action. Relangi’s last wish was to meet Mahesh Babu, her favourite hero, and whose films she has watched several times over since his 1979 debut as a child actor. The meeting happened in Ramoji Film City this week.
Says a source from Mahesh Babu’s team, “When Mahesh was informed about the fan he immediately asked his team to arrange for the lady and her family to travel to Hyderabad. He met her for a few hours, spoke to her about her life and family, held her hand and told her she was like a mother to him.”
Apparently the lady now feels her life is complete for the source adds, “She said Mahesh was like the moon in his looks. She called him the CM after having seen him play the role in Bharat Ane Nenu. She said she could now die in peace and go to heaven.”
Asked to comment on meeting his oldest and staunchest fan, Mahesh Babu said, “Fans are very special. I try never to break their heart. To me meeting this lady was important as she’s so aged. Believe me, I was happier to have met her than she was to have met me.”
