Tollywood actor Mahesh Babu, who is currently basking in the success of his latest release Guntur Kaaram, recently revealed that he had to use 'Ayurvedic beedis' during the shoot of the film, in which his character can be seen consuming beedis at regular intervals.

During an interaction, he revealed that when the shoot of the film commenced, he was given real beedis to smoke. However, the actor, who is not a smoker in real life, got migraines due to the beedis and that is when he approached the makers with a request to find a substitute.

The makers then got him herbal beedis made out of clove leaves and the rest of the film was shot using those. "I don't smoke and won't encourage smoking as well. It was an ayurvedic beedi that was made of clove leaves," he shared.

"Trivikram (Srinivas) researched and got me this ayurvedic beedi, which I found nice. It was made of clove leaves and had a mint flavour. There was no tobacco in it," he explained.
