Srimanthudu is indeed the story of a Srimanthudu, Harshavardhan – the only heir to the multi-billion Raghavendra empire. In this Telugu film, when his father (played by Jagapati Babu) tells Mahesh Babu’s character, Harsha, to take over the business, he replies: “Naaku alanti aalonchana leduandi” (I have no such thoughts). When his father reminds him that all the wealth is eventually his, the modest and carefree Harsha says, “Alanti maatalu vinadaniki chala silly-ga untundiandi“.
Wealth has always been placed as a priority. But a true Srimanthudu does not need anything that is not for the benefit of his people.
