Mahesh Babu and Puri Jagannadh’s Jana Gana Mana issue
According to India Glitz, Puri Jagannadh once had this to say about Mahesh Babu: “Mahesh Babu’s fans keep urging me every day to make ‘Jana Gana Mana’ with their favourite star. They are not aware that Mahesh doesn’t trust someone who is out of form. I like Mahesh’s fans more than Mahesh because they trust me”. This made Mahesh babu fans angry.

There were rumours that Tollywood’s ace actor Balakrishna slapped a fan when he tried to take a selfie with the star. But there was no proper evidence.
Arjun Reddy lip-lock poster
It is known fact that Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Arjun Reddy was a completely raw and romantic love tale. It involved many bold scenes. But before the release of the movie, the makers promoted the film by displaying a poster that had a lip-lock scene on the RTC busses. However, Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao saw the poster and allegedly didn’t approve of the same.
