Bulletproof Security For Mahesh? Here's Why

Bulletproof Security For Mahesh? Here's Why

Being a superstar, getting private security and bouncers during shootings and film events is a common thing for Mahesh Babu. But there has been a time recently when Mahesh shot under bulletproof security.

Apparently, the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir was the main reason behind the bulletproof security for Mahesh. It's well known that the film's 4-week long first schedule took place in Kashmir's Pahalgam and Srinagar a couple of months ago.

Just a few days before the announcement of the Article 370 abrogation, Mahesh and Sarileru Neekevvaru's team were shooting in Pahalgam and Srinagar, where the situation was pretty tense. The film's producer Anil Sunkara had to seek Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh's help to acquire permission to shoot amidst a lot of difficulty.

Anil Sunkara had then applied for permission for bulletproof security for Mahesh, and the actor could reach Pahalgam thanks to the security cover. However, the unit vans were not allowed to enter Pahalgam on day 1. After wrapping up the 4 week long schedule amidst a tight security, the unit returned to Hyderabad safely. And the announcement of the Article 370 abrogation came exactly a couple of days later.
