The pre-release function Khaidi no 150 was high on drama, courtesy Chiranjeevi‘s brother Naga Babu’s outburst at Ram Gopal Varma. It was in reaction to the director questioning Chiranjeevi and his upcoming film. He had stated then that Ram Gopal Varma should concentrate on making better films then comment on his brother. RGV of course did not take it lying down, he lashed out at Naga Babu, called him incompetent and also held him responsible for the loss of Chiranjeevi’s politcial party. And now Chiranjeevi Garu himself has reacted to this controversy, while speaking with a leading portal,” Firstly, I don’t have any problem with RGV or neither had anytime back.Coming to Naga Babu’s speech, I look at it in a very different perspective. In such situations like these, I will not react at all and let people say whatever they feel like. But Naga Babu has his own right and reacted in his own way and I feel he is right from his thinking. All these things depend on every individual’s thinking as they should know what they are talking on public platforms. For me, all these issues do not affect one bit and neither my fans should take them seriously. Also Read: Ram Gopal Varma lashes out at Chiranjeevi’s brother Nagababu – here’s why
