Anupama Parameswaran

In a recent interview, Anupama Parameswaran expressed her aspiration for versatility in her roles, aiming for distinctiveness in each performance and appearance across her films. She emphasized the desire for audiences to easily differentiate her characters.

The interview clip, circulating widely online, has sparked speculation among netizens, suggesting Anupama may have aimed a subtle jab at Mahesh Babu.

Known for maintaining the same look and performance style from 2015 to 2020, Mahesh Babu faced criticism for a long time even from his die-hard fans for lacking diversity in his roles. His characters and appearances often blur together, leaving viewers unable to discern one film from another.

Unlike other Tollywood stars who have embraced variety in appearance and character, Mahesh Babu’s films like “Srimanthudu,” “Brahmotsavam,” “Spyder,” “Bharat Ane Nenu,” “Maharshi,” and “Sarileru Neekevvaru” have showcased the ‘same’ Mahesh Babu.

It appeared as though he walked from the sets of one film to the sets of another film without any change in hairstyle, costumes, or character.

However, it’s essential to clarify that Anupama Parameswaran’s remarks were not aimed at Mahesh Babu. Rather, she spoke from a broader perspective, advocating for artistic diversity and individuality in performances across the board.
