New Delhi:

Murari, one of the most popular films in superstar Mahesh Babu's body of work, celebrates 21 years since its release today. The film, released in 2001, is an important milestone in the actor's career and marked Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre's debut in the Telugu industry. The songs and scenes continue to be fan favourites. And, among the movie's several admirers is Mahesh Babu's wife, Namrata Shirodkar. To mark the special day and celebrate her “eternal favourite”, she has shared a throwback video of one of the songs from the film. In the caption, she wrote, “21 years of Murari. A classic of all eternal favourite.”

The clip that Namrata Shirodkar chose for the post is from the song Dum Dum. Interestingly, the track features glimpses from the 1974 film Alluri Seetarama Raju in which Mahesh Babu's father played the titular role of the revolutionary. Namrata Shirodkar also tagged Mahesh Babu and Sonali Bendre in the post.
