Reel Buzz: A Strange World!

Remember the Pawan Kalyan film 'Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu' directed by Puri Jagannath made prior to bifurcation?

The movie attracted the criticism of Telangana proponents and Puri Jagannath’s office was attacked and vandalized by Telangana students led by Balka Suman.

Incidentally, this great Balka Suman is now a Member of Parliament and had recently even criticized Professor Kodandaram on behalf of the government, the Professor of the University where he was a student.

Anyway, there is not much love and affection between the people of AP and Telangana anymore although they continue to live together in Hyderabad for their own interests.

Pretty much like a loveless marriage which lasts a lifetime. Therefore, it was all the more surprising to see a Telangana fan of Puri Jagannath by name Prabhakar installing a statue of the director in Kondapur village of Chigurumamidi mandal in Karimnagar district.

The statue was inaugurated by Akash, son of Puri Jagannath. Akash later promised to help in the development of the village.

So, while SS Rajamouli may be making the headlines, it is Puri Jagan who beat him to a statue. But a Telangana man expressing his affection for an Andhra director when emotions are running high on both sides?

A really strange world it is that we live in.
