Buoyed by the success of Srimanthudu, lead actor Mahesh Babu has given director Koratala Siva an Audi A6 car as a token of appreciation. The car is priced at almost Rs.50 lakh in the Indian market. Mahesh Babu took the director to a showroom in Hyderabad to personally buy the car. Srimanthudu has grossed over Rs.200 crore worldwide and has become the second highest grossing Telugu film after Baahubali. The success of Srimanthudu has given a much needed fillip to Mahesh Babu’s career after back-to-back failures with One and Aagadu. The actor is currently shooting for Brahmotsavam. Siva is working on the script of his next film, which is likely to star NTR.
