Special Status: Tollywood Scared of IT Raids

Special Status: Tollywood Scared of IT Raids

Special status to Andhra Pradesh has become a national topic now with the no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government was moved by the Chandrababu Naidu's TDP and the opposition party YSR Congress.

Coming to the Telugu film industry, except for one or two actors, none is daring to announce their stand on this. From top stars to medium range heroes everyone is maintaining mum.

In the meantime, TDP criticized cinema people, whereas few film personalities countered their blame. 

Curiously, industry biggies like Suresh Babu, Raghavendra Rao, Murali Mohan, KS Rama Rao, Boyapati Srinu, Rajamouli who has good association with TDP are also maintaining silence. It is better, not to talk about our Telugu heroes.

Mahesh Babu hasn’t uttered a word at least for his brother-in-law Jaydev Galla. No hero is coming forward to support Pawan Kalyan. Interesting thing here is there’s no reaction from Raghavendra Rao who enjoyed few posts with support from TDP.

However, Telugu celebrities have a valid reason for not involving in the special status matter which is a conflicting issue for state and central governments. If, they announce their stand, it may bring troubles for them in terms of IT raids.

Stars like Kamal Haasan and Vishal faced IT raids when they spoke against Centre. As we all know, Raghavendra Rao’s family pooled resources for Baahubali which brought them 100s of crores of profits. If they slip their tongue, they too may face action from IT department.

Thus, Tollywood celebrities have shut their mouths for now.
