Reminiscing his association with the Telugu cinema, Mohan Babu says, "I came from a middle class family and faced many ordeals. I thank the God Almighty for giving me the strength to carry on. The audience also stood by me in bad times. I owe my success, both as a producer and actor, to the Telugu audience.
Both my sons [Vishnu and Manoj] settled down as actors and my daughter [Lakshmi Prasanna] found success as a producer. She is now trying to prove herself as an actress. I'm happy to see them succeed. They still have a lot to achieve. Though I played several roles, both small and big in films, I have not lost interest in acting. If a good role comes my way, I'll grab it at once. I have an idea in my mind. I'll unveil it at an appropriate time."
