RGV doesn't worship God. However, he often indulges in so much flattery of mortals. If it was Suriya who was described by him as the most talented actor he had ever worked with in his career after the release of Raktha Charitra, it is now the turn of Mahesh Babu to get the 'best-est' compliments from the director who likes to coin the most confounding statements from time to time.
"Honestly speaking, there is no bigger talent than Mahesh in India, not just in Telugu", Varma said in a fawning statement. The 'Director of Flops, Super Flops and Super Duper Flops' also said that even Amitabh Bacchan is a lesser actor than Mahesh. (Is Prince embarrassed?)
"Yes. 100 per cent. Mahesh is better than Amitabh. Even Amitabh could not act like Mahesh in Businessman. His performance was amazing every second." The comments took many by surprise. (When he was asked whether he will remake Businessman in Hindi, RGV said that it was entirely Puri Jagannadh's brain child and so he will not tinker it).
Only some months back, Suriya was better than even an Aamir Khan. Today, Mahesh is greater than Big B. Did RGV watch Sangharshana? Did he find Allari Naresh to be better than Kamal Haasan?
