After Nagendra Babu and Allu Aravind, will Akkineni Nagarjuna condemn Ram Gopal Varma over instigating Sri Reddy to abuse Pawan Kalyan? Will RGV’s involvement spoil the relationship between him and his Officer male lead Nagarjuna, who is also very close to Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan’s family? This is a question that is running on every one’s mind. To give you a quick background, it was on Wednesday that actress Sri Reddy came out in the open to admit that it was Ram Gopal Varma who influenced her to use abusive language towards Pawan Kalyan to get more coverage in her fight against casting couch. Ram Gopal Varma too shared a video where he confessed that it was indeed him who asked Sri Reddy to spew venom at power star. And now, Chiranjeevi’s Brother-in-law Allu Aravind has lashed out at the filmmaker for stopping so low and using an emotional Sri Reddy to target PK and mega family.
During a media meet that he hosted on Thursday in Hyderabad, Allu Aravind said, “I saw a recording in which Sri Reddy declared that RGV is behind her comments on Pawan Kalyan. But even before her video came out, Varma hurriedly put up a video, agreeing that he is the person who instigated her. It shows that RGV is an intelligent but crooked person.” In the video, RGV looked unapologetic for asking Sri to use the ‘M********’ word on PK and said that it was highly popularised by Vijay Deverakonda in Arjun Reddy so it is not really an abuse. He also spoke about how Sri Reddy should take Rs 5 crore from Suresh Babu’s whose son Abhiram Daggubati had alleged sexually abused her at a studio in Hyderabad.
Aravind said, “I spoke to Suresh Babu and three other family members about this. None of them want to encourage these things. They are confident that the law will take care of things. But Varma seems to be using an emotional person like Sri Reddy in his crooked plans against the Mega family.” Giving the issue a political twist, Allu Aravind alleged that he knows who is funding RGV and is aware of his conspiracy to target Pawan Kalyan and his family.
Ending his address he also said that RGV achieved all that he has by working in the film industry and he should treat it as his mother. He also demanded the industry to take strict action against RGV. The filmmaker is currently working with an action thriller ‘Officer’ with Akkineni Nagarjuna. Now, with Nagarjuna’s closeness to PK’s family and his association with RGV puts him in a tight spot. Will he stay mum on the issue or take a side? We just hope he speaks up for what is right.
Earlier this week, Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan’s brother Nagendra Babu aka Naga Babu had convened a press conference where he stated that they are silent because they are strong and these kinds of issues do not shake or bother them. But he also said that their silence shouldn’t be taken as their weakness. He was reacting to Sri Reddy’s abusive comments on PK.
