Manchu Vishnu‘ oath-taking ceremony as the new Movie Artistes’ Association (MAA) President took place today. All the members of the Manchu Vishnu panel also took oath today. According to the latest report, neither Mohan Babu nor Manchu Vishnu sent invitations to Chiranjeevi for the oath taking ceremony.
Manchu Vishnu who earlier said he will work together with the other panel members didn’t invite Megastar Chiranjeevi for the oath taking ceremony. While he invited Nandamuri Balakrishna at his residence, but the invitation was not sent to Chiranjeevi. The tradition in MAA to invite big-wig invited for the oath-taking ceremony of MAA chief. But this time the tradition was broken.
It is known that Mega family had extended its support for Prakash Raj who contested for the MAA President post and lost the elections. Manchu Vishnu sought support from seniors in the Tollywood industry before the MAA elections. He personally met veterans like Superstar Krishna, Balakrishna and Krishnam Raju and others, and sought their support.
Today first time, Manchu Vishnu has responded to the resignation of Prakash Raj panel winners. Manchu Vishnu termed their resignations as unfortunate. However, the newly elected president said that he would take advice from the Prakash Raj panel for strengthening the MAA.
Manchu Vishnu also thanked the media for extending support to him during MAA elections.
