Superstar Mahesh Babu took to Twitter and wished Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on his Birthday. “Wishing hon’ble CM @ysjagan a very happy birthday! May AP continue to rise and prosper under your leadership. Good health and happiness always,” he posted.
Given the relationship between Mahesh’s family and the YS family, this does not come as a surprise. But then, the netizens on social media are clearly displeased. The Chief Minister and the Telugu film industry is caught in a crossfire for the last few months. The Government is trying its level best to torment the industry.
As if the pandemic woes are not enough, the Government induced troubles have become big problems for the industry. Even a comprehensive hit film like Akhanda is struggling to break even in some areas of AP. The revenues of Pushpa in Andhra Pradesh are giving sleepless nights to Sankranthi Biggies.
The worst part is that the industry biggies are not able to even get the appointment of the Chief Minister. At this juncture, film fans could not digest the niceties of Mahesh Babu. “Their personal relations are fine. But what about the industry? Did Mahesh at least make an attempt to talk to Jagan? He is also a part of the industry, he should realize,” people are criticizing.
Though the industry people can not open up, they echo similar opinions. It is interesting to note that AP Government is resorting to Vendetta politics on Mahesh Babu’s BIL, Galla Jayadev’s companies. But then, Mahesh Babu always keeps things separate.
