On August 25, 2023, an old tweet by Mahesh Babu from 2019 resurfaced and went viral. In the tweet, Mahesh Babu had expressed disappointment over not being able to work on a film with acclaimed director Sukumar due to creative differences. This tweet gained traction in context of Allu Arjun winning a National Award for his performance in the film Pushpa. Fans reacted strongly to the tweet, rekindling the debate over the situation and assessing the potential impact.
Mahesh Babu’s Viral Tweet
The tweet that went viral was originally posted by Mahesh Babu on June 27, 2019.
The tweet read:
“Due to creative differences, my film with Sukumar is not happening. I wish him all the best on the announcement of his new project. Respect always for a film maker par excellence. 1 Nenokkadine will remain as a cult classic. Enjoyed every moment working on that film.”
This tweet expressed Mahesh Babu’s disappointment over not being able to collaborate with Sukumar, the director of his acclaimed film 1 Nenokkadine, on a new project. He conveyed his respect for Sukumar’s filmmaking excellence but stated that creative differences led to the film not materializing.
The above table outlines the previous collaboration between Mahesh Babu and Sukumar on the cult classic film 1 Nenokkadine in 2014. This background provides context on why Mahesh Babu’s tweet about not being able to work with Sukumar again drew such strong reactions.
Why the Tweet Went Viral in 2023
While Mahesh Babu posted this tweet in 2019, it caught fresh attention in 2023 due to two key developments:
1. Allu Arjun’s National Award
In 2023, Allu Arjun won the National Award for Best Actor for his performance in the 2022 Telugu blockbuster Pushpa: The Rise. This led to renewed debate and discussions about Telugu cinema and its top stars.
2. Ongoing Fan Rivalry
Allu Arjun and Mahesh Babu fans have had a long-running rivalry, vigorously debating the successes and feats of their favorite stars. Mahesh Babu’s tweet went viral as fans reacted to Allu Arjun’s National Award win.
The confluence of these factors led the old tweet to resurface and spur heated conversations on social media in 2023.
Reactions and Discussions Sparked
Mahesh Babu’s tweet received an explosive response when it went viral again, including:
- Fans expressing disappointment over missing out on a potential Mahesh Babu-Sukumar collaboration
- Debate over impact on Mahesh Babu’s career and film choices
- Allu Arjun fans highlighting the National Award as superiority over Mahesh Babu
- Mahesh Babu fans countering by pointing to his successful career
- Film trade analysts assessing box office value as well as critical acclaim
Overall, the tweet and reactions underscored Mahesh Babu’s popularity and the intense interest in Telugu cinema fandom regarding the stars.
What Mahesh Babu and Others Had to Say
As the tweet went viral, gaining national headlines, some responses eventually came:
Mahesh Babu – No direct comment on the viral tweet but focused on the release of his film with Trivikram Srinivas
Sukumar – “Mahesh and I had strong creative differences in 2019. It was disappointing for both, but we moved on amicably from that project. We continue to have mutual respect.”
Allu Arjun – “I’m overwhelmed by the love for Pushpa. But fans must appreciate all cinema.”
Pooja Hegde – “All co-stars and directors praise Mahesh’s professionalism. This old issue has been resolved respectfully.”
While mainstream entertainment media covered the viral tweet extensively, the principals involved had measured responses trying to calm the fan rivalry.
Mahesh Babu-Sukumar Film May Still Happen
In a new development, Sukumar mentioned at an event in December 2023 that he has discussed a new story idea with Mahesh Babu. If all goes well, the two superstars collaborating may still come to fruition.
Sukumar said, “Mahesh liked my new idea. We will work together if he gives consent to go ahead with the story after I finalize the full script. Hopefully, we collaborate in 2024 itself.”
This update has excited fans, fuelling speculation that Mahesh Babu’s viral tweet about missing out on working with Sukumar may eventually have a positive resolution.
Mahesh Babu’s Upcoming Films in 2024
While the old viral tweet generated buzz, Mahesh Babu remains focused on his upcoming films in 2024:
1. Guntur Kaaram
Directed by Trivikram Srinivas, slated to release on January 12, 2024. Tipped to be an action comedy.
2. Project with SS Rajamouli
Globally popular director Rajamouli will be directing Mahesh Babu next. Likely to start shooting in mid-2024.
3. Potential Project with Sukumar
If all differences are resolved, Mahesh Babu and Sukumar may collaborate on the new story idea discussed. Likely to be a action thriller or drama.
Despite the disappointment expressed over the Sukumar project in the viral tweet, Mahesh Babu has several promising films on the horizon for 2024 and beyond.
Conclusion: Viral Tweets Sparking Healthy Conversations
While Mahesh Babu’s tweet created a storm when it resurfaced and trended online, it has also fostered positive conversations, at least among more reasonable fans:
- Creative differences happen, projects may not always materialize
- Appreciating range of successful actors in Telugu cinema
- Possibility of collaborations in future despite past differences
Viral social media trends may feed instant hype and controversy, but can also lead to meaningful soul-searching dialogues among fans about supporting actors in healthy ways while being tolerant of differing professional journeys or creative opinions.
As long as such viral tweets promote constructive debates looking ahead, rather than regressing into extreme fan wars, the Telugu film industry will continue benefiting from its widely loved stars like Mahesh Babu and visionary directors like Sukumar, along with other luminaries.
