Hema’s role in Mahesh’s Athadu is a memorable one for Telugu audiences. On recalling her memories from the sets of Athadu, she revealed that Mahesh Babu used to call her Anjaneyudu as her lips swelled when she hurt them while shooting for an important scene. As her face looked funny with swelled lips, Mahesh used to ask her to go to the shooting of Sri Anjaneyam, as she would be apt for that character.
In another incident, when she was found asleep on the sets, Mahesh suggested crew members prepare a Bon fire and fetch blankets to comfort her.
It seems that Hema aunty has many memorable moments with superstar.
Mahesh Babu is now busy with the shooting of Brahmotsavam in Ooty.
