A seven-day vaccination drive in Telugu star Mahesh Babu's ancestral village Burripalem in Andhra Pradesh was successfully completed, his wife and producer Namrata Shirodkar said on Wednesday.

Shirodkar, a former actor known for films like Pukar and Vaastav: The Reality, shared pictures from the vaccination camp, held in collaboration with Andhra Hospitals, on Instagram.

She ended the caption with the hashtag, "Burripalem Gets Vaccinated."

Babu will be next seen in the action thriller Sarkaru Vaari Paata.

The actor is also currently awaiting the release of his production, Major, based on the life of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack martyr Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan. It stars Adivi Sesh and Sobhita Dhulipala.
