Megastar Chiranjeevi has reached this stage in his life in cinema industry with hard work, passion, dedication and much more. And today if we have to talk about him, there are almost 150 films. But what if someone films nothing among them is a film that he could proudly talk about?
Can't we dare to say such thing on Chiranjeevi's face? But Rebel hero R Narayana Murthy has said it straight on Megastar Chiranjeevi's face other day at "Tera Venuka Dasari" audio launch. He stated, "Megastar Chiranjeevi garu. He is Megastar. He's doing Sye Raa now. I feel very happy. He maybe Megastar however, but there is no single film to boast about. NTR, ANR and Krishna have many films to proudly flaunt, but Chiranjeevi has none. That's why in old age he could feel proud of doing Sye Raa".
While Narayana Murthy's comments took every guest at the event by a surprise, including the likes of Raghavendra Rao, Allu Arvind, Kodi Ramakrishna and Muralimohan, it is Megastar Chiranjeevi who has just given a simple smile and said 'thank you' to R Narayana Murthy.
Industry people, however, feel that Narayana Murthy went little overboard with such remarks. "Even much talked about films like 3 Idiots and PK are also commercial movies only. Similarly, we have Jagadekaveerudu Athiloka Sundari and others for Chiranjeevi. There's nothing wrong with doing just commercial films rather social revolutionary dramas because they make an industry survive. Also by the time Chiru became a big star, people are not watching such Bobbili Pulis and Prem Nagars. Trends changed" an industry expert pined.
Probably revolution loving Murthy hasn't seen films like Apadhbandhavudu and Rudraveena kinds of movies, quips Mega fans, in the meantime.
