Mahesh Babu used to be very fat

Not many here know that Superstar Mahesh Babu and Tamil actor Karthi were school mates back those days. In a recent interview, where Karthi was promoting his upcoming Kaashmora, answering a question about Mahesh Babu, the actor went nostalgic.

“Mahesh Babu was a commerce student and I was in science. We were not in the same batch. But my close friend in commerce was a close friend of Mahesh. I have known him via that common friend. Mahesh Babu once came to me for a Maths notes at 3am. We mostly used to meet during car park. We haven’t interacted very much. He was very fat in school. But when he went to Loyola college, it was shocking to see him turn slim. He is a hard worker. I have seen him running all the time. He kept running and that’s how he lost the weight. I have become a fan of him seeing in early movies. There is emotional content and sincerity in Mahesh’s performance. I never knew that he had the side of an actor in school days” Karthi went into the flashback and shared some really interesting things about our Superstar.
