Not even a single film of Nagarjuna in his entire career, including the likes of Bhai or Raju gari Gadhi 2 trolled like this by critics and audiences alike. Other day it is gloom and doom for his new release Manmadhudu 2 however. Cinema analysts, however, opine that this happened due to two women and their previous comments.
With all due respect to the good work put up by Chinmayi and Samantha on Twitter through their activism, they should have impartially knocked off their family and friends in the same meter. Especially when Chinmayi’s husband Rahul Ravindran directorial Manmadhudu 2 trailer was released, this trolling game has started on social media sites as they pointed at the kisses and double entendre dialogues of Nagarjuna inside it. Trollers included Samantha as well as she is the daughter in law of Akkineni khandan.
At that time, both Chinmayi and Samantha criticised director Sandeep Reddy Vanga for making Kabir Singh slap Preethi in Arjun Reddy Hindi version and commented on it with the hashtag #DeeplyDisturbing. Linking the same hashtag to Manmadhudu 2, trollers made an outrage of Nag’s dialogue where he says he will not pick farming just for a plate of food (in connection to falling in love and getting married).
Other day on the eve of film’s release, the peck by Rakul on Jhansi’s lips, followed by Nag’s double meaning dialogues and Rakul’s cigarette smoking, trollers had a feast targetting Samantha and Chinmayi. While they continued to blast them accusing that they are pseudo feminists, it’s Manmadhudu 2 that got entangled in loads of negativity.
This whole discussion happening on Twitter has two sides, but the trolling got more weight with Manmadhudu 2 unable to put a weight with its content.
