Mahesh Babu's Movie Journey

Mahesh Babu started out his movie career as a child actor in his father's films before making his debut as an actor. His debut film was Rajakumarudu, cast opposite Preity Zinta. His next fews films such as Yuvaraju and Vamsi also helped Mahesh's career. But in 2001, his release Murari became a big hit and ran for 175 days. Mahesh and Sonali Bendre played the main roles of the film. However in 2002, Mahesh had a dull phase. Both releases Takkari Donga and Bobby flopped at box office and Mahesh was in need of a hit. In 2003, Mahesh finally got the hit he was looking for:Okkadu. Okkadu became of the biggest hits in Tollywood for the year 2003. Mahesh gave an average film, Nijam and later gave a flop viaNaani. Arjun, which released in Summer 2004, came to be an average to above average grosser. For one year, Mahesh did not sign up for any film, as he was busy with Athadu from July 2004 to July 2005. All the hype was worth it as it was a big hit both in India and overseas. His most recent movie, Pokiri is another major hit in his career. His movie, Pokiri, not only became the highest grossing film in Mahesh's career, but also broke all Tollywood records by grossing a share over 48 crores.

In 2011, Mahesh's film Dookudu co–starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu was released. Directed by Srinu Vaitla and was produced by 14 Reels Entertainment, it broke many records in the Telugu film industry upon release by taking the largest worldwide opening, earning 21.2 crores in 3 days, and becoming the highest grossing Telugu film overseas by earning 1.5 million dollars in the first weekend. The film set a box office record for the Telugu film industry by collecting a gross of more than 1 billion and completed a successful run in 312 centers after 50 days. CNN-IBN for the year 2011, declared him as the Actor of the Year and Dookudu as the Hit of the Year in a survey conducted for Telugu films. He also won Filmfare Best Actor Award (Telugu) for his performance in the movie. He then co–starred with Kajal Aggarwal in the movie Business Man. The film was directed by Puri Jagannadh and produced by RR Movie Makers, releasing worldwide on January 13, 2012.

According to certain reports, Mahesh emerged as the highest paid actor in South India after Rajnikanth.
