Participating in the Green India Challenge on his birthday (August 9), 'Sarileru Neekevvaru' star Mahesh Babu not only thanked TRS MP Santosh Kumar for kickstarting the drive but also delighted the fans of two other superstars by nominating them for the challenge.  Mahesh nominated Jr NTR and Kollywood's reigning hero Vijay, besides Shruti Haasan.   


"There couldn't be a better way to celebrate my birthday. #GreenIndiaChallenge. I pass this on to @tarak9999, @actorvijay & @shrutihaasan. Let the chain continue and transcend boundaries. I request all of you to support the cause. One step towards a greener world!" the 45-year-old handsome actor tweeted.  

Meanwhile, his birthday-related trends on Twitter are claimed to have hit a world-record figure.  He thanked everyone for all the wishes and said, "Reading all the wonderful things written makes me really happy.  Thank you for sending in all your greetings and blessings."  And the motion poster of 'Sarkaru Vaari Paata' has gone pretty much viral.
