Telangana Chief Ministers K Chandrasekar Rao and cine actor, Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan have developed rivalry from election times. Ever since Pawan made some improper annotations against KCR and his family in elections campaigns, TRS is shivering with anger. Later, Pawan Kalyan also reacted strongly and criticized KCR and his other family members- Kavitha, Harish Rao. At that time, Telugu film industry and film makers from Telangana kept mum on this issue and KCR hasn’t liked this.
Recently, few of the filmmakers belonging to Telangana region congratulated KCR for taking charge as CM of the state. During their meeting, when filmmakers asked for support from the government, KCR expressed anger on them for not condemning Pawan Kalyan comments during elections time.
As we learnt from sources KCR told them, “You come to me for support but why didn’t you condemn when an Andhra actor (Pawan Kalyan) criticized me and my family. You should make good films to reach a dominating position over Andhra producers who are currently ruling the industry.
My government will give total assurance to industry and won’t suffer any actor or filmmaker from other regions. But, I will try to look into the issue of assisting Telangana based actors and filmmakers. Our people (Telanganites) should get equal opportunities in industry.”
