As a major controversy unfolded in the Movie Artistes Association (MAA) with president Sivaji Raja and secretary Naresh locking horns and the MAA divided into two groups, gloom surrounded Mahesh Babu’s fundraising event.
While Naresh & Co are demanding that next event marking the silver jubilee celebrations of the MAA should be put on hold until the controversy ends and clarity emerges, Sivaji, Srikanth, Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao and others are maintaining that the event with Mahesh is very much on and the same organizers who had conducted the Dallas event would do this as well.
This has turned into a bone of contention between both the parties. Naresh, Gautam Raju and others are demanding that an inquiry into Dallas event would be conducted in a fair manner and should constitute a Facts Finding Committee with retired IAS, IPS officers and stating that the same event organizers shouldn’t be repeated since allegations arose.
Naresh has stated that it was him who had connected Namrata, Mahesh and convinced the latter for the MAA event. Naresh, however, stated that Sivaji Raja’s team has directly contacted Mahesh and sidelined him which he said is raising suspicion.
These statements are now raising doubts whether Mahesh would be attending the MAA event in the wake of controversies and allegations. Since Mahesh is non-controversial and avoids unwanted controversies, this MAA controversy is said to be pulling him unnecessarily.
Now, speculations in film circuits are rife that Mahesh may even drop out of the MAA event if the controversy persists and both parties doesn’t come to a logical conclusion. Now that bigwigs such as Chiranjeevi are involved, one has to wait and see, what would be the outcome.
