Putting family aside for society and living a simple life in a village- this is the core backdrop of “Srimanthudu” who walks out of a wealthy family to help village of Devarakota to develop. This heart touching concept has touched many hearts and thereby wallets, and the film is minting crores at box office. Is there any real life example among our film celebs in Srimanthudu way?
Only name that is synonymous with Srimanthudu in real life is Powerstar Pawan Kalyan. For this numero uno star, more than money, his ultra powerful acting family including Megastar Chiru and the whole mega khandaan is quite bigger and crucial. But Pawan left his family, stood against his brother, and fought for a better society through elections by supporting the TDP-BJP combine through his newly established Janasena party. Imagine the dialogue of Mahesh to Jagapathi, where he wants to do something he likes and earn respect. This suits Pawan well in real life.
Coming to his living, Pawan Kalyan stays at his farm house, he takes part in the farming work, digs earth himself, ploughs the land, plants the seeds and waters them too. He grows mangoes and distributes them to all. If anyone has to narrate a story or discuss political stuff, they need to go to his farm house and experience that village nativity. While he is ultra stylish, luxurious and complete urban rich-creme chap on silver screen, he’s a simple guy in real life. What more reasons are needed to call him Srimanthudu? Pawan is the one!!!
