Had Mohan Babu showed some concern to the sentiments of the community, things would have been different. But he commented ‘They are ‘Kiraayi Brahmins’ and I would have donated (Chanda) them some money, if I was at Home’. Stung by his comments they filed cases in Neredmet Court and even approached the Film Chamber of Commerce and Censor Board.
To the top of it priests in Guntur followed the ritual of citing the powerful mantras and have performed ‘Pinda Pradanam’ in the name of Manchu mohan babu. Later on they have collected 20 cheques of each Rs.1,116 to be posted to mohan babu as a Donation (Chanda). They have even done ‘Shatru Peeda Homam.’ It has to be seen how these homams will effect Mohan Babu and even Vishnu who said he will settle the matter in courts.
