As the election date for the Movie Artistes Association (October 10) nears, the rivalry among actors is taking unusual turns. Actor Naresh, while wishing Sai Dharam Tej a speedy recovery after his recent bike accident, also said that he had cautioned Sai about speeding on his bike earlier. Going further, he noted that the sons of actors Kota Srinivas Rao and Babu Mohan had passed away in bike accidents due to speeding.
However, this did not go down well with actor Srikanth. He felt Naresh’s mention of those who had lost their lives in biking accidents was uncalled for, and appealed to people not to make such comments.
Naresh retorted that he was referring to incidents that had happened in the industry in general. “I am surprised at the way Srikanth responded to my video bytes, he said, adding that parents always caution their kids as a safety measure.
Naresh in his turn asked Srikanth to be careful in his comments, and also recalled that the latter had unsuccessfully contested against him in the MAA elections. Even actor-producer Bandla Ganesh expressed his disappointment over Naresh’s comments. Well, things are certainly hotting up!
