It is known news that Santosham awards were celebrated recently and number of celebrities including Raghavendra Rao, producer Allu Aravind, Mega Star Chiranjeevi, singer S Janaki and others graced the occasion as chief guests. On this occasion Raghavendra Rao opened up about Geetha Govindam and director Parasuram. Though Raghavendra Rao showered praises for Geetha Govindam and appreciated the hard work of entire team but gave a shock when he said, “ The director Parasuram copied my movie Pelli Sandadi and made Geetha Govindam.” Raghavendra Rao added, “Allu Aravind and I had made Pelli Sandadi 20 years ago. Geetha Govindam reminded me of my movie. Generally it’s impossible to make a movie without a single kiss. There will be a lot of pressure from the producers. I congratulate director Parasuram for making the movie without compromising.
