Why Eenadu Missed Chiru Cover Story?

Sunday magazine of Ramoji Rao's Eenadu newspaper carried special cover story on Nandamuri Balakrishna's 100th film "Gauthamiputra Satakarni" while missing a similar story on Chiranjeevi who has came up with his 150th movie.

This partiality has sparked a row. Eenadu Sunday magazine also carried similar special cover story about "Baahubali" before the release because it was the costliest Telugu film and was made with total finance help from Ramoji Rao.

Luckily for Eenadu, the film also went on to become one of India's all-time biggest hits and the movie seemed justified.

But the same newspaper coming up with a similar story on "Gauthamiputra Satakarni", that was more of paid promotional article than informative news feature has led to several interpretations.

When both senior stars Chiranjeevi and Nandamuri Balakrishna are releasing their milestone movies of their career, ideal option is to feature both of them on cover page and write about those movies. But missing one and carrying the other is seen in the angle of "caste".

Eendu editorial staff says they carried the cover story about "Gauthamiputra Satakarni" since the film is about the first emperor of Telugu land who ruled from Amaravathi, not because of Balakrishna. But some say this argument doesn't hold water.
