Mahesh Babu is usually politically inactive. He often says that he has no knowledge or interest in politics. When repeatedly asked about his political interest, he said he has same knowledge that of his son Gautam has on politics.
However, actor Posani Krishna Murali revealed an interesting anecdote and conversation that took place between him and Mahesh Babu before 2019 election results.
Apparently, Mahesh Babu has asked Posani about YS Jagan and his prospects to win. Without any hesitation, Posani had told Mahesh that Jagan would win sureshot. Posani also said Mahesh was skeptical as Chandrababu was in government and has money and power, but Posani told Mahesh that Jagan would win 100 percent. Posani had shared this during a TV interview on the eve of 1 year of historic win of YSRCP which won 151 Assembly seats and 23 Parliament seats.
Posani had also said that majority of Telugu film industry had believed that Chandrababu would win again. He said many had also put bets that Naidu would retain power. He added that many in industry had told him that Naidu would win with 150 seats majority whereas the reality is quite opposite as Jagan won with such a thunderous majority.
Posani said he had predicted Jagan’s victory but he hadn’t expected the magnitude of landslide victory for Jagan. However, he said he had expected that Jagan would deliver. He was all praise for Jagan and his 1 year of rule. Posani said Jagan is keeping his promises right from the day he assumed CM chair. He said Jagan would do more in four more years.
