"It was my first day on the set. We were going to shoot an action sequence. I met Mahesh and we exchanged pleasantries. After the shot, Mahesh sat near the monitor and I joined him. Suddenly he started talking in Tamil, and I was totally awestruck," Indiaglitz quoted Harish as saying.

Curious about Mahesh Babu's fluency in Tamil, he asked the "Pokiri" actor how he was able to speak Tamil so well, to which Mahesh Babu said that he learnt the language when he was studying in a Chennai college.

Speaking about his experience of working with the Telugu actor, Harish Uthaman said Mahesh Babu is a friendly co-star, who is very helpful actor. "Since I had a language barrier, there were a few shots that required multiple takes. He asked me not to worry and said that he's even willing to give 50 takes, if required. He's very considerate."

However, Mahesh Babu is all set to make his debut in Tamil with "Brahmotsavam". It is a bilingual movie directed by Srikanth Addala. Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha and Pranitha are in the female lead roles.

It is a family drama, which will hit the screens next year. The movie has Mickey J Meyer's music, R Rathnavelu's cinematography and A Sreekar Prasad's editing.
