Veteran actor Mohan Babu is all set to release his new film Son of India. However the movie unit got shocker from OTT platforms. Details as follows.
Son of India movie has star cast like Mohan Babu, Akhanda fame Pragya Jaiswal. It is produced by Manchu Vishnu and the screenplay of the film is provided by Mohan Babu himself. Music is provided by Ilayaraja. The makers wanted to finalise the deal with OTT but as per the reports, none of the OTT platforms showed any interest in buying this movie. The movie shooting started long back but the release of the film is delayed. While OTT platforms cited the reason for not being interested in this movie as delay in the shoot , it seems the audience as well as OTTs are not interested in this movie from day 1. It is known news that Mohan Babu doesn’t have a hit as solo hero though his performance is appreciated in character artist roles. Moreover, Manchu Vishnu’s last movie Mosagallu was a nightmare to the audience as well as the OTT platforms. Several memes were circulated asking who at Amazon made decision to buy this movie.
With no OTT platform showing interest in this movie, Manchu family decided to release the movie in theatres on 18th February. We need to wait and see whether Mohan Babu will be able to score hit as solo hero this time.
Senior actor Mohan Babu on Wednesday took to his social media handle to announce that his upcoming emotional drama ‘Son Of India’ is all set to hit the screens on February 18.
Making an official announcement, Mohan Babu wrote, “Patriotism in his blood #SonofIndia. Grand Release in Theaters on 18th February. Maestro #Ilaiyaraaja Musical on @adityamusic. Proudly produced by @iVishnuManchun & Directed by @ratnababuwriter.”
‘Son Of India’ is in the final leg of its making, while the makers are eyeing to wrap up the post-production formalities soon. Being a patriotic film, it is expected that the movie has intense emotions imbibed in it, while the dialogues are billed to be hard-hitting.
Directed by Diamond Ratna Babu, the movie stars Mohan Babu and Pragya Jaiswal in the lead roles.
Interestingly, Mohan Babu’s dear friend Tollywood star Chiranjeevi has lent his voice for the teaser, which was released a few months ago.
Mohan Babu’s son, actor Vishnu Manchu, is bankrolling the venture, while Mohan Babu’s daughter-in-law and Vishnu’s wife Veronica have provided the costumes for Mohan Babu in this movie. While Maestro Illayaraja has composed the music, 24 Frames Factory and Sree Lakshmi Prasanna Pictures are jointly bankrolling the movie.
Veteran actor Mohan Babu served Tollywood for five decades as an actor and he has been a businessman and Educationalist. He turned a helping hand and offered free education through Sree Vidyanikethan for many from the past three decades. Mohan Babu announced that Sree Vidyanikethan turned out into Mohan Babu University. Located in Tirupati, Mohan Babu University will start operations very soon.
An emotional Mohan Babu wrote, “The seeds sown in Sree Vidyanikethan have now grown into a Kalpavriksha. Your 30 years of trust and my life’s mission has now culminated into a universe of innovative learning. With gratitude, I offer Mohan Babu University in Tirupati. Your love is my strength ad I am confident that you will continue to support this dream too” posted Mohan Babu on the achievement.
Veteran actor, producer Manchu Mohanbabu on Sunday (today) wrote an open letter to Tollywood film industry. In his letter Mohababu categorically stated that Telugu film industry is not about just four heroes or four producers or four distributors.
Mohanbabu said Telugu film industry comprises 24 crafts and it belongs to all those who work in these 24 crafts. Unfortunately, few Tollywood personalities have turned Telugu film industry as an industry that belonged to just four heroes, four producers and four exhibitors.
Mohanbabu gave a call to the entire film industry to join hands and meet Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana unitedly, to take up the issues concerning Tollywood industry and seek resolution to the problems being faced by Tollywood at present.
“Telugu film industry means hopes and aspirations of thousands of people working in this industry. It also means thousands of families who are dependent on this industry for their livelihood. First, we all should meet at one place to discuss on problems and solutions of film industry. Then we should meet unitedly the CMs of Telugu States and take these issues to their notice and seek redressal of our problems. But unfortunately, only four heroes or four producers are meeting CMs on their own without consulting anyone in the industry saying that the CMs permitted only four to come and meet them. This is not correct. This will lead nowhere. I am telling this with my 47 years of vast experience in the Telugu film industry,” Mohanbabu elaborated in his letter.
Mohanbabu further stated that no one is small or no one is big in film industry. All are equal and everyone has their own importance. There is no monopoly here. If small producers were also taken into confidence and they were made part of meetings with CMs, then the problems that we are facing today would not have arisen.
There may be different persons with different political affiliations in the film industry. But everyone should respect the CMs who were elected by the people. Did we do that? We should respect, meet them and bring our issues to their notice and seek resolution of our problems. When I was MAA president, I took everyone along and met then AP CM YS Rajasekhar Reddy and sought his help to check piracy. YSR immediately responded and took strong measures to check piracy. That should be the spirit, said Mohanbabu in his letter.
With just few days left for the premiere of Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Unstoppable with NBK, a talk show to be streamed on Aha Telugu platform from November 4 as Deepavali delight, its makers have released the promo of the first episode.
It features veteran actor Mohan Babu sharing some untold and best kept secrets in conversation with Balayya. Mohan Babu too poses a few questions to NBK, to which the Nandamuri actor responds.
Both talk politics, cinema and other topics. Another highlight of the show is the appearance of Lakshmi Manchu and Manchu Vishnu, daughter and son of Mohan Babu, respectively.
The unique show will be very intersting and many celebrities are being invited to be part of it. While they will share their experiences with NBK, the actor’s side which is full of swag and fun will be revealed in the show.
This is something which was never expected from NBK and many surprises are said to be in store.
Though he considers himself non-political, actor Mohan Babu is closely linked to politics. He had in the past worked for the TDP and the BJP. His last political foray was in the YSRCP. In the 2019 elections, he has campaigned for the YSRCP. In fact, he had even staged a dharna slamming Chandrababu Naidu over non-payment of fee reimbursement.
But if one looks at his recent comments in the “Open Heart With RK” in ABN Andhra Jyothi, it becomes clear that he is not happy with the way things are happening in the YSRCP. He indirectly indicated that he could not get the TTD trust board chairperson post. He said it was the prerogative of the chief minister. He gave the post to his close relative, he remarked. At the same time, his unhappiness with the fee reimbursement appears to continue.
However, Mohan Babu was careful when he stopped short of blaming YS Jagan Mohan for this. He said some officials were misleading the government. He said because of this misleading advice, the higher education is suffering. He said he has indicated his opposition He said that the government had taken a decision and that the decision was not to his liking.
While Mohan Babu was quite careful with his words and did not openly show any defiance of Jagan Mohan Reddy, he did indicate his dissatisfaction with the AP government. At the same time, he did not also reveal whether he would campaign for any other political party in the next elections.
Taking the pre-release event of Sai Tej’s Republic as the needed stage, Pawan Kalyan made sensational comments on AP government which has issued a new ticket rate GO and is in plans to start a ticketing portal. He also addressed some of the actors and questioned them why they are unable to take the challenges to the notice of AP Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy. He said that Mohan Babu is close to YS Jagan’s family and questioned why he could not meet YS Jagan and discuss the issue with him.
Mohan Babu today issued a press statement saying that his son Manchu Vishnu is contesting in the MAA Elections and he would respond and discuss about the issues after the completion of the elections. He also asked Pawan Kalyan to vote for Manchu Vishnu in the MAA Elections. Ever since the AP Government announced a movie ticketing portal, there are mixed responses from the celebrities. Megastar Chiranjeevi along with several actors planned to meet YS Jagan but they were denied an appointment.
Senior actor Mohan Babu today lodged a cyber complaint with the Hyderabad Cybercrime police on the trollers. In the complaint, he wrote that, some persons are posting trolling videos on social media against him. Details as follows.
As per the complaint of Mohan Babu, some people have intentionally made some objectionable videos on him and uploaded them on social media. Reportedly, obscene language and vulgar words are used against him and his family members in those videos. Mohan Babu’s legal advisor also submitted evidences of those videos to the police.
Police have booked case against the trollers under sections 504 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code and also under IT Act. We need to wait for further updates.
Megastar Chiranjeevi and Mohan Babu shared a different bonding. Though the world is aware of the tiff that took place on public platforms, the duo shares a great bonding and are very close friends. They hang out frequently during their breaks and Mohan Babu several times revealed about their ‘Tom and Jerry’ relationship between them. Chiranjeevi lent his voice for the teaser of Mohan Babu’s upcoming movie Son of India. Mohan Babu is playing a lead role after years and the film is gearing up for release.
The latest news we hear is that the film will also have the voice-over of Chiranjeevi. It is the voiceover of Megastar that will introduce the major characters of the film. Mohan Babu is also planning a massive pre-release event before the film’s release. Megastar Chiranjeevi will attend the event as Chief Guest. Directed by Diamond Ratna Babu, Son of India is produced by Manchu Vishnu. The film’s official release date will be announced soon.
Legendary actor Mohan Babu has been away from movies and is doing films quite selectively. His small role in Suriya’s Aakasame Nee Haddhuraa received top-class response from the audience. He is making his comeback in the lead role through Son of India. Tamil actor Suriya unveiled the film’s teaser that starts with the voiceover of Megastar Chiranjeevi. Mohan Babu exhibits multiple shades in the teaser which is focused on Mohan Babu’s characterization without unveiling the plot of the film.
Mohan Babu looks like he is leading a mission that is kept under wraps for now. Ilayaraja’s background score is good and the cinematography work stands out in the teaser. Popular writer Diamond Ratnababu is the director of Son of India and the film also has Srikanth and Pragya Jaiswal playing other prominent roles. Manchu Vishnu produced Son of India on 24 Frames Factory banner and the film releases soon.
Megastar Chirajeevi and Mohan Babu have been great friends for a long time. However there were some rumors created when there was a disturbance between them a few years ago. Both Chiru and Mohan Babu have given clarity to the people and media that they are good friends and always will be!
And now, here is one more proof for that! The two actors went on a trip to Sikkim and the photo of the duo was shared by Mohan Babu’s one and only daughter Manchu Lakshmi. Showing her jealousy in a cute way, she shared a pic of them and also said that she will accompany them someday.
“Good to see both of you having a nice time, the trip is happening because you (Chiru) convinced Nana,” she wrote. Speaking about Lakshmi Manchu’s career, she recently acted in ‘Pittakathalu’, the Netflix film.
Mohan Babu was recently seen in Suriya’s Aakasam Nee Haddura and now, he is working on his upcoming film ‘Son of India’ while Chiru has completed the shoot of Acharya and is working on his other films.

It is several months now that Modi-Shah have stopped giving appointments to AP CM Jaganmohan Reddy. The BJP top leaders are ignoring even Jagan’s Number 2 leader Vijayasai Reddy also. A few weeks ago, Jagan Reddy in his capacity as Chief Minister went all the way to Delhi and waited for hours together. But Modi and Amit Shah did not meet him. Prior to the elections, it was totally different. At that time, Modi-Shah doors were always open for Jagan Reddy, Vijayasai Reddy, Mekapati Reddy and all YCP MPs. But these days, Modi-Shah are encouraging mostly non-Reddy and non-YSR family loyalists from Andhra Pradesh. It is already known how they gave lot of importance to YCP non-Reddy MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju. Now, Modi has spent nearly an hour with YCP leader and actor Mohan Babu’s family and took photos with them.
It has spread at the national level also that Jagan Reddy has targetted one particular caste in AP. Mohan Babu belongs to this particular community. He has badly embarrassed Chandrababu in last elections by holding street protests on fee reimbursement. Now, Mohan Babu is apparently unhappy that he has not received enough importance in YCP. It is well known that Mohan Babu expects more and more in return for his support to anybody. His meeting with Modi came as a big surprise to even YCP Ministers and MLAs. All this is fuelling fears as to what Modi-Shah are going to do to counter Jagan Reddy in the coming future.
