Mahesh Babu and Namrata Shirodkar had met in the summer of 2000, for the first time for a movie, and by the end of the film, Mahesh and Namrata had already fallen in love with each other. On February 10, 2005, the couple had taken the wedding vows. The couple had welcomed their first kid, Gautam Krishna, in the year 2006, and was blessed with their second child, a daughter, named Sitara in 2012.

On May 31, 2020, Mahesh Babu took to his Instagram handle to do an ‘Ask me anything’ session with his fans. His fans bombarded him with a variety of questions, but what is a question and answer session, if fans don’t ask about someone’s personal life. Mahesh too, was bombarded with some personal questions and questions about his family. One of the fans asked Mahesh to choose between his son, Gautam and daughter, Sitara. His question can be read as “Who do you like more Sitara or Gautam?” Mahesh gave an apt reply calling his kids to be a part of him. He replied, “Both of them are a part of me!! How could I love them less???” Well, indeed, how can a parent choose between his or her kids! Take a look:
Other than this, Mahesh was asked, “Sir, how much do you love Namrata mam?” To which, he replied, “R u married?? First tell me.” When asked “Who is your bestfriend ????” he replied, “@manratashirodkar” followed by a hug emoticon. When asked about his favourite game, he revealed how much he loves to play with his son, Gautam. He said, “I’m really enjoying paying tennis, golf and baseball online with my son @gautamghattamaneni.” A fan asked if Gautam is also going to be a hero in the future, like his father, he replied, “He wants to I guess!! Only time will tell” followed by two heart emoticons. When asked about his quarantine life with family, he replied, “It’s been an experience of lifetime. I have done so many things with them that I wouldn’t be able to do, had I been working.” Take a look at the screengrabs of the session:
