“You have been my inspiration, you have been my strength, you have been my courage. You have been my everything. If not for you, I would not have been half the man I am today. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Now just rest…rest… In this life and if at all I have another, you’ll always be my ‘Annaya.’ Love you forever and ever and ever,” Mahesh Babu‘s note read.
