Superstar Mahesh Babu might have entered the Tollywood industry as the heir of Superstar Krishna. But he created a niche for himself and established himself as one of the leading stars. Movie lovers in the northern belt know Superstar Krishna as the father of Mahesh Babu.

The 47-year-old Handsome hero completed 43 years of his journey in Tollywood. Mahesh Babu was introduced to the Tollywood industry with child characters and then he acted with his father and brother before becoming a full-time hero.

Mahesh Babu's first outing as an actor was Needa. The film stars his brother Ramesh Babu as the main lead. Legendary director Dasari Narayana Rao who entered the  Limca World Record for directing the most number of films in the world helmed the film which was dubbed as an experimental film at that time.

The Ghattamaneni hero was just four years when he acted in Needa. The film was released 43 years back exactly on this date. Needa film hit the theatres on 1979 November 29 and saw a decent success. Marking this occasion Mahesh Babu fans are trending the #43YearsForSSMBReignInTFI hashtag on social media.

Popular Publicist BA Raju's team took to Twitter to share the unseen pictures from the film. Needa's posters were also shared by the team. Mahesh Babu is looking cute and charming in the unseen pictures.

Mahesh Babu made his debut as a hero with Raja Kumarudu in 1999. K. Raghavendra Rao directed the film and laid a strong foundation for Mahesh Babu's career. Okkadu was a career-defying film for the star. His Pokiri film struck gold at the box office and brought good profits to the producers and distributors.

Mahesh Babu is riding high on back-to-back successful films. His last film was the action drama Sarkaru Vaari Paata. He played a US financier who locks horns with an MP over a clash. The film highlights the faults in the banking system and how big shots take the wrong ways to get loans from the banks.
