This is incredible feat by Mahesh. Although he started off his acting career as a child artist, Mahesh Babu debuted as hero in Rajakumarudu in 1997 and there's no stopping to him since then.
As a debutante he won his first Best Actor Nandi and despite flops the actor went on to add Golden Nandi's too to his showcase.
The actor bagged 2016 Best Actor Nandi for Srimanthudu to make his count of Nandis to 8 a new record for this generation heroes to have won so many Nandis. Venkatesh stands close second with 5 Golden Nandis.
