Actor Mahesh Babu, who is celebrating his birthday today, is someone who has delivered hit after hit consistently. More importantly, he is someone who has managed to win scores of hearts, both in society and in the film industry. But what is it that endears him to everybody, especially those who work with him?
Southscope got in touch with one of India’s ace cameramen, Randy, who has worked with the star, to find out.
Talking to Southscope, Randy, who has worked with several top stars including Supestar Rajinikanth, says, ” Mahesh Babu has several good qualities but if you were to get me to pick some of the top ones, I would rate his trust highly. He is an actor who trusts his technicians wholeheartedly. Though he is well read, he is someone who trusts his technicians. I’ve seen that quality in Rajini sir and after that, only in Mahesh. When a person trusts you with all his heart, you give the very best that you have to offer. “
“One other thing that endears Mahesh is the respect he gives. The respect he has for people, especially his techinicians is amazing. Usually, people don’t pay attention to a technician after his work is done. But Mahesh Babu is someone who will enquire after you even after the post-production process of a film is done. He is genuinely concerned about people,” Randy adds.
“One other quality that I find special in him is his willingness to experiment. Mahesh is someone who does not hesitate to experiment and that is something that is admirable,” says Randy.
