Ram Gopal Verma gets back at Mahesh Babu’s controversial ‘Bollywood can’t afford me’ comment

Sarkaru Vaari Paata star Mahesh Babu has earned a lot respect and fame throughout these years in the whole country. The talented actor has delivered some extraordinary work in the South Industry and he often gets asked about working in Bollywood. Recently, the actor finally answered the question but his ‘Bollywood can’t afford me’ comment rather turned into a controversy.

Replying to his comment, famous Bollywood filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma said, “It is his choice as an actor. But I honestly didn’t understand what he meant by Bollywood can’t afford him. I am still unable to figure out what he meant by that because the point is, if you see the recent South Indian films, they were dubbed and released and they made whatever money they did. Also, first of all, Bollywood is not a company. It is a label given by the media. An individual movie company or a production house will ask you to do a film at a particular cost, so how can he generalise Bollywood, I don’t understand that. Bollywood is not a company, so his context is not understood.”

For the unversed, Mahesh Babu was asked about his debut in Bollywood during the trailer launch of ‘Major' and he made a huge statement. He said, ‘I may sound arrogant, I did get a lot of offers in Hindi. But I think they can’t afford me. I don’t want to waste my time'.

Mahesh Babu’s team did try to repair the damage as they issued a statement on behalf of him, “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.”
