Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, who is leading the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology on its study visit to Hyderabad, on Wednesday ran into leading Tollywood actor Mahesh Babu at a five-star hotel here.
"What a delightful personality," tweeted Tharoor after the meeting with the actor.
"Talking to MaheshBabu @urstrulyMahesh shows you why no one in Hyderabad refers to him without the honorific 'Superstar'! He had just finished knocking out the villain in his next production when we had a chat behind the scenes," wrote Tharoor who posted a video of the meeting.
"As it happens, at our hotel in Hyderabad, the @TridentHyd, I ran into Superstar MaheshBabu @urstrulyMahesh along with my colleague (& his brother-in-law) @JayGalla, a member of the Committee. What a delightful personality!" he tweeted.
The actor was shooting for Sarkaru Vaari Paata. Directed by Parasuram Petla, Sarkaru Vaari Paata will release in theatres on January 13, 2022.
Galla Jayadev, a member of Lok Sabha, belongs to the Telugu Desam Party (TDP).
