Mahesh who hails from Chinnalapatti debuted as a hero in the Tamil film Angaadi Theru directed by Vasanthabalan. This film was a great success.
After this film Mahesh had acted in a Malayalam film titled Last Bench. Whenever he has no shooting, he comes to his native place Chinnalapatti.
He has the habit of playing volleyball with his friends. He is now in Chinnalapatti to attend the temple festival. While speaking to us from here, he said, “I studied in Devangar Higher Secondary School.
I am a volleyball player. I was participating in a volleyball tournament in Tirunelveli. Director Vasanthabalan who was scouting for locations for his film there happened to see me.
He selected me for the lead role in his film Angaadi Theru. That film was a great success. I want to act in a film once again directed by my mentor Vasanthabalan. Now I have acted in a film titled Veyilodu Vilayadu.
This film is to be released soon. I have also acted in a Malayalam film titled Lat Bench. I am currently acting in the films Yaasagan, Adithalam, Velmurugan Borewells and Malayil En Kaiezhuthu.
Actress Aarushi who paired with me in Adithalam is also pairing with me in Velmurugan Borewells. My first film heroine Anjali use to call me on the phone now and then.
For the last two months, she has not contacted me. I am currently staying in an apartment in Valasaravakkam. I will come to my native place Chinnalapatti to participate in any festivals held here.
I have come now to Chinnalapatti to participate in the Chithirai festival. It gives immense happiness to be with my friends and relatives. Actor Vijay and Surya are my role models.”
