Mohan Babu’s Padma Sri – Media Is Wrong??

Posted : December 23, 2013 at 7:34 pm IST by ManaTelugu

It is news everywhere that veteran actor Mohan Babu is asked by High Court to return back his Padma Sri. When these headlines are rocking almost all the channels, it is heard that none of them have understood what Court has really said.

In fact, Court expressed anger over usage of ‘Padma Sri’ before names of Mohan Babu and Brahmanandam in the title-cards of Denikaina Ready. The bench felt that Padma recipients need to understand what was written in constitution’s article 18(1) about using names of national awards as prefix and suffix while before personal names. Reacting on a petition filed by BJP leader Indrasena Reddy that Mohan Babu and Brahmanandam has misused ‘Padma Sri’ award status conferred to them, Court made these comments. Also Censor Board is slammed for not directing the producers of the movie Denikaina Ready to remove the prefixes in the titles. Further hearing on the petition is postponed to Monday, and we have to wait till then to know more about the issue.

Without getting into this, many media houses have reported that High Court asked Mohan Babu to return back Padma Sri conferred to him. Sources close to the actor revealed that he is going to lodge a defamation suit on media houses that aired this news in a wrong way.
