Venkatesh Maha gained recognition in Telugu film Industry with films like C/o Kancharapalem and Modern Love Hyderabad. Recently, the comments made by him in an interview while referring to the movie KGF2 have raised a big controversy. Netizens are trolling him on social media. Apart from Venkatesh Maha, Vivek Atreya, Nandini Reddy and Mohanakrishna, who laughed at his words. It is clear that if you don’t like the work done by a film director, it is okay to criticize but it is not correct to speak abusively.
Venkatesh Maha, Nandini Reddy, Vivek Atreya, Mohana Krishna Indraganti and Shiva Nirvana participated in an interview. When the commercial movies were mentioned, Venkatesh Maha made harsh comments about Yash and Sanjay Dutt starrer KGF 2 movie. He used abusive words about the character of the hero in it, saying “N…ech k…mine k..tte”. Even though these are Hindi words, those words are not digested by many Telugu people.
Venkatesh Maha responded the trolling and said that he only criticized a character in the movie, but trolling by targeting him, who is a real life person, is not an excuse. A video has been released to this effect.
Venkatesh Maha said: The words I spoke were some section of people with me. I am not the only one. Perhaps I apologize if my language and words hurt me. But my opinion is the same. I need to say one more thing. What I spoke was about a fictional character in a movie. It was my personal feeling It’s an opinion. I apologize for my language, but I will not take back my opinion. I must also clarify that I didn’t target any particular language or movie. I didn’t directly insult any person, not even a creative person. But to what extent is it right to troll me, who is a real life person. I have received similar trolls on me in the past. So respect my opinion, big and small.”
