Prince Mahesh Babu's brother-in-law Jayadev Galla is Guntur's MP for TDP. Also, his uncle Adiseshagiri Rao quit his position from YSRCP and joined TDP. This has sparked rumours that Mahesh Babu is supporting him.
However, Mahesh Babu's wife Namrata has come out with a strong statement clearing the air. She said, "My husband respects what Naidu has done for the state and the progress of both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is a matter of great pride for him. Just because he is seen with Naidu, it doesn't make him a political figure."
Rumours are also rife that Mahesh Babu might also be campaigning for TDP in the upcoming elections. Namrata quashed them as rumours and said, "Mahesh is not campaigning for any political party, nor does he intend to contest any elections or pursue any kind of political ambitions. He barely says a few words to me, where will he make big speeches on public platforms? He is the most apolitical person I know."
Mahesh Babu is presently shooting for his 25th film Maharshi. Namrata also said that Mahesh doesn't even go out to meet his friends when he has free time. "When he's free, he'll spend time with us (family)."
