Seniors in any field are looked up for appreciation and cordial welcome by juniors and newcomers. That's the reason colleges have Fresher's parties and the tradition is same elsewhere too.
But when it comes to Film Industry it is seen as a place where egoes play bigger role as Seniors feel insecure about juniors and fellow actors.
ANR never encouraged such thought process and after him, Dasari Narayana Rao earned the name of being welcome to all. Recently, Megastar Chiranjeevi from past decade took the job of Big Daddy, in the Industry as he is the eldest of stars.
Now, the next generation of stars, that is 2000's youngsters and heroes who became stars after him, are required to step up and welcome the new brigade of talent.
Mahesh and Pawan Kalyan have such statute has proved from time to time that they are the next big stars after Fabulous 4.
Prabhas and Jr. NTR are also at the same stage but they are too shy and Pawan Kalyan has decided to take political route. So, Mahesh seems to have stepped up to the challenge.
He has been too reserved all these years not talking about other heroes or their films and sticking to just his films.
But ever since Baahubali has come, he is seen regularly welcoming popular new films and directors.
He tweeted about Oopiri, Kshanam, Mahanati, Rangasthalam, Arjun Reddy, Goodachari and now, Geetha Govindam.
He seems to have assumed the "Big Daddy" role and it is his initiation to call Jr. NTR to his Bharat Ane Nenu audio event.
The actor is also constantly making efforts to meet Ram Charan, touted to be taking Pawan's place and Jr. NTR to showcase to fans that they are all friends and one group who support each other.
With him appreciating small and medium budget films, youngsters will take an inspiration to do better.
