After falling in love with each other, Mahesh and Namrata had tied the knot on February 10, 2005. The much-in-love couple is blessed with two adorable kids, Gautam and Sitara.
Mahesh Babu prefers to keep his personal life extremely private and rarely discuss about it in the media. The actor is a complete family man and he never shies away from expressing his love for his close ones. However, in a tragic event, Mahesh Babu's mother, Indira Devi, left for her heavely abode, leaving her entire family heartbroken.
Mahesh Babu’s mother, Indira Devi, passed away at 4 am on September 28, 2022, in Hyderabad. She had been suffering from age-related health probelms for the past few days and was admitted to AIG Hospital in Hyderabad. Later, she was put on a ventilator for some time. However, her condition deteriorated with time, and she bid adieu to the world. The actor's family is completely shattered by their loss.
In a statement released by Mahesh Babu's family, it was stated that his mother, Indira Devi’s mortal remains will be kept at Padmalaya Studios from 9 am to 12 pm on September 28, 2022, to pay respect. Her funeral will take place at Maha Prasthanam later in the day. The statement can be read as:

For the unversed, Mahesh Babu was born to yesteryear actor, Krishna Garu and his wife, Indira Devi. He is the fourth of the five children the couple was blessed with. After Krishna parted ways with Indira and married Vijayanirmala, Indira stayed single. However, her family members would come to meet her frequently.
