Mahesh Babu started out his movie career as a child actor in his father's films before making his debut as an actor.

His debut film as a lead actor was Rajakumarudu (Raj Kumar), cast opposite Preity Zinta. His next few films such as Yuvaraju and Vamsi (Vamsee) also helped establish Mahesh's career. But in 2001, his release Murari (Kannayya,Murari)) became a breakthrough for Mahesh. Mahesh and Sonali Bendre played the main roles of the film. However in 2002, Mahesh had a dull phase. Both releases Takkari Donga ( Raja ) was avverage and Bobby ( Bobby )flopped at box office.

In 2003, Mahesh finally got the hit he was looking for. Okkadu (Ajay ) became one of the biggest hits in Tollywood for the year 2003. Mahesh gave another average at box office with, Nijam ( Seetaram ) but it gave commertial hit profits to producers, that same year. However, he won the Nandi Award for Best Actor for his performance in Nijam. In 2004, Mahesh acted in the flop, Naani, which was a remade from Tamil hit New. Arjun ( Arjun ), Which released in Summer 2004, came to be an average to above average grosser. For one year, Mahesh did not sign up for any film, as he was busy with Athadu ( Nandu ) from June 2004 to July 2005. It was a big hit both in India and overseas. In April 2006, his next movie, Pokiri ( Pandu & Krishna Manohar ) became the highest grosser in the Telugu Film Industry. Mahesh's performance was applauded by even Ram Gopal Varma and Amitabh Bachchan. Till Pokiri he is Prince Mahesh and after Pokiri he became Super Star Mahesh

Mahesh's t film, Sainikudu ( Siddharth ) had a tremendous opening but failed to live up to expectations.But it managed a cool 100 day run. All his hits have been remade in Tamil and Hindi. In 2007 Mahesh came as Athidi ( Athidhi ) and bagged a record of highest grosser in first two weeks in Tollywood History. Hope He will give biggest hit in 2009 after neary two years gap. All the best Super Star Mahesh Babu for your future projects.
