Pawan vs Jagan : What a stark difference ?

The meeting between Tollywood bigwigs and Deputy CM Pawan Kalyan earlier today in Vijayawada has once again brought to the fore the discussion on how Jagan Mohan Reddy’s government targeted the film industry in the last few years with punitive measures whenever big-ticket films released.

Especially for Pawan Kalyan’s Vakeel Saab, the then government came up with unfair ticket prices in Andhra Pradesh and left all its buyers distraught.

Despite earnest requests put forward by a delegation of Tollywood stars like Chiranjeevi, Mahesh Babu, Prabhas and others, Jagan didn’t show any mercy on Tollywood.

Moreover, the way he treated these stars when they went to his camp office in Tadepalli to consider the interests of film industry was met with sharp criticism at that time when visuals of Chiranjeevi’s requesting him in a servile manner during the meeting came out.

Cut to the present, Tollywood heaved a sigh of relief with the election results of Andhra Pradesh. As expected, Jagan faced an ignominious defeat in the hands of the NDA alliance in which Pawan Kalyan’s Janasena is also a coalition partner. Moreover, Janasena secured the crucial cinematography ministry in Naidu’s cabinet.

Unlike last time, Tollywood dignitaries landed in Tadepalli with much content to meet Pawan Kalyan and congratulate him for the massive success. Moreover, they are quite happy with the fact that some one like Pawan Kalyan who is well aware of the crisis and difficulties in film industry will pay heed to their requests and resolve them.

Pawan Kalyan received all the industry representatives cordially and spent a good time with them. After the meeting, Allu Arvind stated to media that they visited him as a courtesy call to extend wishes and to settle the issues in film industry. All those who attended the meeting appeared very happy.

Comparing Tollywood’s meeting with Jagan Mohan Reddy last time and with Pawan Kalyan today, one can notice a stark difference in how the industry bigwigs are treated.
