Right from the beginning, legendary actress Savitri's daughter Vijaya Chamundeswari is supporting 'Mahanati' team but has to face a set of controversies after the film's release. And that came from none other than Gemini Ganesan's daughter Kamala from his first wife. Here comes reaction of Savitri's own daughter on that.
"I've seen the film from my own perception from my mother's point of view. Now, my sister, Kamala Akka might have seen the film from another point of view. It's just a perception difference, but I won't find any fault with my sister. She being a Tamilian might have understood film in a different way as this is a dubbed Telugu movie. It's true that Dad loved Mom like anything and the film is not going to create any differences between me and sister Kamala" said Vijaya Chamundeswari.
But what about the 'boozing' remarks made by Kamala Ganesan? She stated that Gemini is not the one who has taught drinking to Savitri and that upset her.
"I agree, Dad doesn't force her to drink. But Mom would have got likening to alcohol due to social drinking which is rampant in the film industry and being a superstar she would have tasted. That scene in Mahanati showcases that mom had a drink with dad, but it doesn't mean she drank first time with him only" said Vijaya Chamundeswari.
"The most valuable assets I got from my father is none other than my sisters from my father through another mother. I won't lose them at any cost. My Peddamma (Babjima), shown as Alamelu in the movie, is my great mentor and supporter. So there is no chance of losing respect for my dad's family, which is also my family", she concluded.
