Huge Damage To Chiru, Charan Reputation
Senior Tamil actor Raj Kiran has made some controversial comments against Megastar Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan that could damage the reputation of the duo.
It is known that Raj Kiran was the first choice to play the character of Charan’s grandfather in ‘Govindudu Andarivadele’. After canning certain parts, Raj Kiran was replaced with Prakash Raj. There were rumors spread at that time that Chiru was behind the replacement of the senior Tamil actor.
Now, more than two years later the film hit screens, Raj Kiran has divulged that he was disrespected by both Chiru and Charan by replacing him in the film without giving him any reason. He added that when director Krishna Vamsi narrated him the story, his character had more prominence than that of hero in the first half.
‘After Chiru watched the rushes, he felt that I dominated Charan hence they shortened the grandfather character and also replaced me,’ reportedly revealed Raj Kiran, who will next be seen in lead role in Dhanush’s directorial debut, ‘Pa Paandi’.
‘I wouldn’t have minded if I was personally explained about the situation. But, as I was waiting for the next schedule, they replaced me and didn’t even bothered to inform me. This is not the kind of treatment senior actors expect from Chiranjeevi. The producer still hasn’t settled my remuneration up to Rs 10 lakhs,’ he reportedly added.
As the film’s producer, it was the responsibility of Bandla Ganesh to settle the monetary and other issues with Raj Kiran. As he allegedly didn’t do his job, Chiru will now have to bear the comments.
