Mahesh Babu, the choice of one out of every three girls. His royal looks and stunning skin tone is not less to any Hollywood hero. When he gets ready in stylish wear, people go crazy for him, but it seems the audience wants him to see as a guy next door and that is the reason for him to deliver blockbusters when he is in casual wear.
Mahesh films are appreciated by the audience when he is in casual wear and put those films aside, where he is in stylish wear. Right from the beginning of his career, his films like Bobby, Nani, 1 Nenokkadine, where he was identified in utmost stylish looks, proved this logic and were remained as below average films.
On the other side, when Mahesh was in a guy next door attire, he delivered blockbusters like Murari, Okkadu, Athadu, Pokiri, Business man, Dookudu and Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu.
However, there are even failures like Nijam, Arjun, Khaleja where he was seen in a casual wear. But there is no such definite Mahesh range hit when he is stylish attire. As the stardom goes on increasing, the fans, especially for Telugu heroes, expect their heroes to be the guy next door type.
But now in Srimanthudu, Mahesh is again spotted with utmost stylish looks. The first look poster and teaser of the film already clarified this and the recently released poster (image above) confirmed it. So hope the trend breaks this time and Mahesh would score a blockbuster even in stylish looks.
