Mohan Babu's Hollywood guest



STAR PRESENCE Richard Gere with actor Mohan Babu's family

It isn't everyday that a Hollywood hotshot drops by your home for tea. So when Richard Gere came visiting to Mohan Babu's house on Saturday, the latter was thrilled to bits. The press and numerous TV channels vied with each other to take pictures of the high-profile actorwith Mohan Babu and family.

The moment Gere alighted from his car, Mohan Babu introduced himself and his sons and greeted the Hollywood man with a warm welcome. The former had some very kind words for our actor's jet black hair.

In a very frank and disarming reply, Mohan Babu said the hair he sported was just a wig and he was scaling from inside. Gere even took a peek at some of Mohan Babu's movie clippings and particularly liked the song Naa paata Panchamrutham from Allari Mogudu.

The Hollywood hero complimented Babu for his versatile roles and on-screen looks.

Gere was here in Hyderabad on an official visit for the launch of the southern chapter of the media campaign of Heroes Project.

He apprised Babu of the campaign details and asked the latter regarding his contribution from Movie Artistes Association.

Later, speaking to the press, Vishnu said he and his family, in their personal capacity and as members of the film fraternity, would do their best to fight the spread of AIDS.
