Tollywood is known for its unity and during any controversy and tribulations, it comes in support of its stars covertly or overtly. However in the controversy related to Manchu family’s ‘Denikaina Ready’, it looks like entire film fraternity deserted them. None in the film industry opened their mouth or came in support of Manchu family members even when both the parties were involved in a brawl. Even Mohan Babu’s revered master Dasari did not intervene and try to cool the tempers.
Buzz is Mohan Babu and Vishnu themselves contacted Producers Council and addressed a press conference in which they started supporting producer shifting the entire balme on Censor Board. It came as a surprise because the same duo lashed out at the censor board when it suggested 12cuts and asked them to delete 8 of them immediately. They used their power at the review committee and came out minimum number of cuts. Even during Mohan babu’s fight with Regional Officer Dhanalakshmi, or Brahmin Organisations, only Mohan Babu and Vishnu ended up giving explanations.
Manchu and Mega families courted controversies and none supported Manchu family in any of the issue. But Mohan Babu climbed down and invited Megastar for Denikaina Ready audio launch but he did not turn up. Even Chandra babu Naidu’s and Nandamuri’s families with whom Manchu family enjoys good rapport did not come in support of him. Ironically Manchu family made films with both Nagarjuna and Balakrishna but both the films bombed at the box office.
Even film chamber President Tammareddy Bharadwaj subtly spoke in support of censor board saying many of the films are getting stopped and Dhanalakshmi views films according to her convenience. One never knew what happened to Denikaina Ready. Insiders reveal that Mohan Babu was furious on Vishnu and others after returning from Chennai and they say that he was of the opinion that Vishnu was at fault. Had Mohan Babu apologized and tried to sort out the problem he would have got some support but when he went hammer and tongs it complicated the whole issue. He even went on to say that he just remade the film from Malayalam original trying to shift blame on original. One wonders why Tollywood fraternity is staying away from Manchu family. Is it because it believes Mohan Babu at fault?
