Telugu star Mahesh Babu on Thursday took to Twitter to laud Telangana police for their relentless work in spearheading the fight against coronavirus. He also thanked them for their selfless dedication.  

“I want to take this moment to wholeheartedly thank the Telangana police force for spearheading the battle against COVID-19. Their relentless hard work is absolutely outstanding,” the actor tweeted. He further added: “Immense gratitude for safeguarding our lives and the health of our families during these most challenging times. Saluting your selfless dedication towards our country and its people.”

Mahesh was one of the first few stars from Telugu filmdom to come forward and donate for coronavirus relief. He has donated Rs1 crore to the CM relief fund for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

“Lauding the exemplary efforts of our government in tackling coronavirus and doing their best to contain it, I’ve decided to do my part, contributing Rs1 crore to the CM relief fund of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana,” Mahesh said in a statement, urging others to come forward and contribute in any which way possible.

On the career front, Mahesh was last seen on screen in the Anil Ravipudi-directed Telugu entertainer, Sarileru Neekevvaru (2020). In the film, he played a soldier who comes to a small town and saves a family from the clutches of a rowdy politician. The movie went on to gross over Rs200 crore at the box office.

Sarileru Neekevvaru also starred Rashmika Mandanna and veteran actor Vijayashanti, who made a comeback after 13 years, in crucial roles. Prakash Raj played the antagonist.

Mahesh will next reunite with his Maharshi (2019) director, Vamshi Paidipally, for a new project which is expected to take off later this year.
