However, in a recent statement released by the Sarakaru Vaari Paata actor, it was revealed that his comment was just a joke and should be taken with a pinch of salt.

For the uninitiated, during the trailer launch of Adivi Sesh starrer Major, Mahesh Babu had said, “I did get a lot of offers in Hindi, but I don’t think they can afford me. I don’t want to waste my time working in an industry which can’t afford me. The stardom and the respect I get here [in South] is huge, so I never really thought of leaving my industry and going to some other industry. I have always thought of doing films and becoming bigger. My dream is coming true now and I can’t be happier.”

In a recent statement released from a source close to the actor, it was said, Mahesh has clarified that he loves cinema and respects all languages. He said he is comfortable doing the film where he has been working. Mahesh said he is happy to see his dream coming true as Telugu cinema is going places.
