Megastar Chiranjeevi re-entry film ‘Khaidi No.150’ released in the Sankranthi season and turned out to be a huge blockbuster. Star comedian Prudhvi played a small role in this film. But there was a controversy about removing his scenes at the editing table. Prudhvi has expressed his sadness over the scissoring of his scenes from Chiru film through a Facebook post.
This has become an embarassing situation for ‘Khaidi No.150’ team then. Chiru interfered and suggested the team to not to edit Prudhvi scenes.. even Vinayak has agreed to it. The controversy subsided later. Prudhvi never talked about this episode now. He has responded on it after a long time. He said that “Achieving stardom has become a problem for me. I don’t want it. I was pretty comfortable when I was doing normal characters. I’ve done a small character in Khaidi No.150. Director, producers have every right to edit it when feel necessary. It’s their film and their decision is final. They will have their own concerns.”
“But a website has changed my casual statements in to a viral news.. and it has done big hungama. I’ve just worked only two hours for the film. But still they have added the scenes to the already censored film..and recensored it again because I felt sad. I met Chiranjeevi garu personally after the release of the film.. and I’ve spoken with him 45 minutes. When I tried to talk about that controversy.. he told me that’s an unnecessary issue.. there is not need to talk about it. That shows his culture.”
