There are rumors that Late Paritala Ravi of Telugu Desam Party tonsured the head of Pawan Kalyan on a Land issue. The rumor spread like a wildfire back then creating rifts between Kamma and Kapu Community for a long time.
Pawan Kalyan clarified this in a meeting at Vijayawada. He went on to say he first heard about it from his brother, Chiranjeevi who said that someone from TDP office told that. Pawan Kalyan said that his first reaction was like, “Who is Paritala Ravi?”.
Nobody tonsured my head and I just got it tonsured during my shooting breaks. “I still supported TDP because I just wanted to send a message that there should be no caste rifts,” Pawan Kalyan told. He also mentioned about Vangaveeti Ranga Episode in which everyone suffered.
