Last month, Allu Arjun (aka Bunny) celebrated his 40th birthday in Serbia (Czech Republic). The photos of the event show him having a blast with his friends — but his cousins and nephews, including Ram Charan, Varun Tej and Sai Dharam Tej, were conspicuous by their absence. The cousin sisters were present though.
Of late we hear Charan praising Jr NTR and his acting skills but not a word about Allu Arjun, despite the pan India success of Pushpa.
The message seems to be that Allu Arjun has moved out from the shadow of the ‘mega clan’ presided over by Megastar Chiranjeevi. He is establishing himself as an actor in his own right — in fact, he has already done that. The super success of Ala Vaikuntapuram Lo and Pushpa have brought him national fame, and he has now got his own following and fan-base.
There definitely seems to be some discord between both families. And comparisons between Pushpa and the flop Acharya at the BO clearly state who is better posied at the moment.
But Allu and Mega families have repeatedly rubbished these stories.
But the fans seems to have taken a clear stand — pro and anti. Recently, there was a ‘mega fans’ get-together held in Andhra Pradesh. In the show, one of the ardent mega fans was seen saying, “There is this Cheppanu brother guy (hinting at Allu Arjun) who is an opportunist. He used mega family support to rise to stardom. Once he gained the name and fame he sidelined the family. We mega fans should not support him; his next film should be his last one.”
Allu Arjun fans are not taking this barb lying low. They are vocal about their heroe’s super succes is what’s sticking like a thorn in the mega family stars’ flesh. Things have reached to a stage where fans of both Ram Charan and Allu Arjun don’t hesitate to troll each other’s heroes on social media.
The cracks seemed to have widened between Allu and Mega families over establishing supremacy....
