In the glitz and glamour of cinema, success, and failure are as unpredictable as a plot twist. The debate often arises: if a film succeeds, is it the hero’s victory? If it flops, is it the director’s loss? However, few actors are candid enough to own up to failure. Mahesh Babu stands tall among those who have publicly admitted to and apologized for their flops. Let’s explore the times Mahesh said sorry and see who else makes it to this list of genuine stars.
Mahesh, a pinnacle of Tollywood, has tasted both highs and lows. When big expectations led to big disappointments, he openly expressed regret. At the audio release event for Srimanthudu, he emotionally apologized for Aagadu’s failure. His candidness extended to owning up the flops of Brahmotsavam at the ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ event, and the movie Spider.
