Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu finds himself in the crosshairs of tax agencies. Mahesh Babu got into headlines of the wrong kind when GST officials attached his bank accounts in a tax case recently. Though the actor himself has stayed clear of identifying himself with any political party, his brother-in-law and industrialist, Jay Galla is a TDP Lok Sabha MP and is said to be a close aide of Andhra Pradesh chief minister, Chandrababu Naidu.
Mahesh Babu's father, popular actor of yesteryears was a Congress MP, elected to the Lok Sabha in 1989 from Eluru. Krishna's brother Adiseshagiri Rao switched over to the TDP recently hoping for a Lok Sabha ticket.
Mahesh Babu has always kept away from active politics, but speculation is that his industrialist brother-in-law's proximity to Chandrababu Naidu could have led to the tax problems of the actor. This may well be pure conjecture.
