Remember Mahesh Babu's post in which he said his daughter Sitara looks "exactly like his mother"
? Well, months later, his wife Namrata Shirodkar sort of refuted Mahesh Babu's claim in her Instagram post. Namrata juxtaposed Sitara's childhood picture with an old black-and-white picture tagged to her sister Shilpa Shirodkar
, who in turn shared it on her Instagram page. Namrata's caption read "twinning" but she did not elaborate whether it's her photo or that of Shilpa (several Instagram users are debating over it). Those who believe that it's Shilpa's picture have added comments like: "Shilpa and Sitara are so alike." But some Instagram users are unconvinced and also think that Sitara resembles her grandmother Indira Devi. "But she looks more of Mahesh garu's mother," said another Instagram user.
Take a look at Namrata Shirodkar's post here:
And this is what Mahesh Babu instagrammed in March:
