Once upon a time Bollywood biggie Ram Gopal Varma was best friends to his protégé and mentee in the Telugu Film Industry, Puri Jagannadh. There was not a time when RGV would visit Hyderabad and not visit Puri’s office and hang out with him.

But all that was before Tollywood’s #MeToo moment and before actress Sri Reddy criticised Pawan Kalyan. Puri, who got his first hit film from Pawan was quick to take offence when RGV announced that he was the one who encouraged Sri Reddy to take on Pawan. When Puri tweeted his ire about RVG’s action, the latter apologised but that cut no ice with his former protégé.

 

The two are no longer on talking terms and things are so bad right now between them that when he was in Hyderabad to promote his film Officer, RGV used the office of his other prodigy, J.D. Chakravarthy. We hear that this is the same office from where he is steering all promotions of his ambitious next film, Bhairavageetha.
