Producer gives clean chit to Balayya

Producer Ramesh Puppala who staged a protest before Arjun theatre in KPHB against the management for replacing his film Srimannarayana with Nagarjuna's devotional flick Shiridi Sai has given clean chit to the film's hero Nandamuri Balakrishna. "Balakrishna is aware of the theatre issue, but he has no role in the protest we had staged," he confirmed.

The cops arrested the producer and film's director Ravi Chavali to take the situation under control as hundreds of Nandamuri fans gathered near the theatre in support of the protest. However, they were left free after couple of hours.

Ramesh Puppala accused distributors (theatre mafia) of harassing them by replacing Srimannarayana which is running successfully with house full collections from Day 1. He even submitted a representation to film chamber and producers council seeking action against the people responsibly. The producer threatened to stage a dharna before film chamber on Friday if he was denied justice.
