Sudha Kongara is the director and the entire shoot of the film got completed recently. The actor will be playing Suriya’s mentor in the film.

Megastar Chiranjeevi is shooting for a social drama that is directed by Koratala Siva. The shoot of the film is happening without breaks in Hyderabad. The latest ongoing buzz about the film is that veteran actor Mohan Babu is in talks for the role of the lead antagonist in the film. It is still unclear if the actor gave his nod. Trisha is the leading lady and the other actors, technicians are yet to be announced.
Mohan Babu playing a powerful role in Megastar’s film will be an added advantage for the film. Ram Charan plays a crucial role and Manisharma is the music composer. The entire shoot will be wrapped up by the end of summer. Konidela Production Company and Matinee Entertainments are the producers.
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.
Movie Artistes Association (MAA) Dairy Launch Event took place in Park Hyatt today. Megastar Chiranjeevi, Mohan Babu, T Subbirami Reddy, Krishnam Raju and Murali Mohan along with several members of MAA attended the grand event. Speaking at the event, Chiranjeevi expressed his interest in conducting more charity events to help the aged and all those who are in need. He said that he is ready to meet all the young actors to make them active in charity events. Along with this, Chiranjeevi also spoke about the internal issues of MAA.
“I was disturbed with the recent issues in the committee. We never faced such hurdles in the past. I am here to resolve all the issues. Telangana government is ready to allocate land for MAA but the issues kept the plans on hold” said Chiranjeevi. Losing his cool, Rajasekhar started touching the feet of all the guests before starting the speech. Chiranjeevi was left irritated with the behaviour of Rajasekhar.
“I had several problems in my home. I also met with an accident recently. Chiranjeevi garu spoke well about MAA. But there are lot of internal problems in MAA. We are acting in films as heroes, but in real life we could not stand as heroes. MAA is split into two parts with 18 members one side and 8 members on the other side” said Rajasekhar.
Chiranjeevi returned back saying there is no value for his words. Losing his cool, Chiranjeevi said “I wanted all the issues to be sorted through meetings. I am badly disturbed with this. We are here to travel together on a common stand. Media will make this a news. When you are not interested, you should not come to this event. If there is any disciplinary committee, take a strong action against Rajasekhar” said Chiranjeevi.
Young Rebelstar Prabhas is the darling of many and the actor is known for his simplicity and down-to-earth nature. The actor recently paid his visit to Mohan Babu’s residence and spent ample time with his family. He interacted with Manchu Vishnu and clicked some pictures with them. Mohan Babu and Prabhas worked together in Bujjigadu. Prabhas returned from his London holiday recently and will resume the shoot of Jaan from next month.
Dialogue King Mohan Babu delivered a very interesting dialogue. He politely asked media not to spread rumors on his being in the race for the TTD Chairman post. At the same time, he asserted that he came back to politics because of CM Jaganmohan Reddy and because he had full confidence in Jagan’s leadership.
Mohan Babu said that he only wanted to see Jagan as the chief minister and for that he contributed his bit. He didn’t altogether dismiss rumors whether he is in race for TTD Chairman post or not. Ex MP YV Subba Reddy and MLA Bhumana Karunakar Reddy are also in the race for the post. YCP leaders are excited who will finally get the post.
Mohan Babu created a pre-polling controversy on alleged non-payment of fee reimbursement arrears to his educational institutions. TDP accused him of benefiting the YCP politically.
Dialogue King Mohan Babu faced criticism from the TDP leaders on the issue of continuing students suicides in Telangana state. Mohan Babu attacked Chandrababu Naidu government on the alleged non payment of fee reimbursement arrears. Recalling it, the TDP leaders asked why the actor is keeping silent when so many intermediate students are committing suicides in Telangana. Finally, Mohan Babu broke his silence but along expected lines.
He came in defence of the KCR government saying that Telangana government is responding on the suicides issue. Soon, they will give strong punishment to the guilty persons. Mohan Babu’s defending words came at a time when the opposition parties and student associations are on the agitation path there. The dialogue king obviously reacted to the TDP leaders’ criticism though belatedly. He made an emotional appeal to the students not to take extreme step as human life is precious. He further said that as the head a huge educational institution, he knew the aspirations of students but one should not cause grief to their parents, brothers and sisters by taking hasty steps.
Veteran actor Mohan Babu is in news today in a cheque bounce case. A Hyderabad based court sentenced one-year imprisonment for Mohan Babu after director YVS Chowdary approached the court regarding his remuneration for directing Saleem, a film that released in 2009. After the film ended up as a flop, Mohan Babu kept a part of Chowdary’s remuneration on hold. After Chowdary mounted pressure on Mohan Babu, the veteran actor issued a cheque that bounced. Despite several attempts and industry big wigs trying to solve the issue, it remained unclosed. It is then YVS Chowdary approached the court.
Soon after the news about the court sentence came out, Mohan Babu issued a clarification that the cheque was not issued for Saleem remuneration. He said that he paid one more cheque for Chowdary to direct his next project. After the debacle of Saleem, Mohan Babu wished not to do the film and he asked Chowdary not to cash it. Mohan Babu said that Chowdary tried to cash it even after asking him not to do that.
Telugu360 spoke to the close sources of YVS Chowdary and they clarified that this is the cheque was given as a part of remuneration for Saleem. Manchu Vishnu himself clarified that there are disturbances between Mohan Babu and YVS Chowdary while shooting for Saleem. Chowdary’s sources argued why would Mohan Babu pay one more advance when all is not well between them. The cheque was issued on December 11th, a day before the release of Saleem and Mohan Babu asked YVS Chowdary to cash it after a month. Chowdary waited with patience and wanted to solve through industry people but Mohan Babu never responded. The court after a thorough investigation revealed their decision today.
Veteran actor Mohan Babu has been sentenced one year jail in a cheque bounce case by Erramanjil Court, Hyderabad. Mohan Babu issued a cheque for director YVS Chowdary as remuneration and the cheque bounced. Despite of several attempts, Mohan Babu failed to pay the due after which Chowdary approached the court.
Soon, Mohan Babu applied for bail and the court granted him bail. YVS Chowdary directed Manchu Vishnu’s Saleem and the film made on a budget of Rs 25 crores ended up as a dud. Mohan Babu was not in a mood to pay the remuneration to Chowdary after the film ended up as a dud. Mohan Babu issued a cheque of Rs 41.75 lakhs for Chowdary in 2010. Mohan Babu recently joined YSRCP and is campaigning for the party currently.
Veteran actor Mohan Babu, who joined ysrcp recently, made sharp comments on Chandrababu Naidu today. He reminded people about the backstabbing episode of Chandrababu Naidu to NTR and urged people not to believe Chandrababu Naidu.
However, there is a mixed reaction from people on Mohan Babu comments. it is known news that Mohan Babu also was part of Chandrababu Naidu team during 1994 August episode. During that time he even made very sharp comments on Lakshmi Parvathi. At some point of time, the cadres that were still with NTR and Lakshmi Parvathi after Chandrababu took over the power, even protested Mohan Babu for his comments on NTR and Lakshmi Parvathi. The newspaper cuttings of Mohan Babu comments on NTR and Lakshmi Parvathi during that time are still available on social media.
More than all these, the only political position Mohan Babu held in his life date is of Rajya Sabha MP. He was given this position by Chandrababu Naidu in 1995 after CBN became chief minister of the state. From April 1995 to 2000, Mohan Babu was Rajya Sabha MP. It is only after CBN denied him the extension of Rajya Sabha, Mohan Babu came out of TDP and started criticizing Chandrababu Naidu.
Given the history of Mohan Babu accompanying Chandrababu during NTR backstabbing episode and even getting Rajya Sabha seat because of that, his statements are receiving only a mixed response from people
Veteran actor Mohan Babu finally joined YSRCP officially. He has been indirectly criticizing CBN in recent times. Recently he staged a dharna against TDP government for non payment of fee reimbursement dues. However, TDP clarified that 90% of dues have already been paid and Mohan Babu is doing this protest just for political gains. After this episode, he joined YSRCP officially today. He also met Ram Gopal Varma and had chitchat with him. It is known news that this movie is being produced by YSRCP leader. By seeing their meet, doubts started among people whether it is to “modify” Mohan Babu’s character in the movie.
Lakshmi’s NTR is surely the most controversial movie in recent times. This movie is directed by maverick director Ram Gopal Varma, and slated to release on March 29th. The movie is done with all the formalities. In the trailer of the movie there is a role that resembles Mohan Babu. It is known news that Mohan Babu was with CBN during 1994 August episode. He even got MP Rajya sabha seat from TDP. But later when his Rajya Sabha seat was not extended for next 6 years, he left TDP. After a few years he became relative of YSR after Vishnu married Veronica.
RGV tweeted his photos with Mohan Babu and wrote “Sir, I am happy that at least now you are telling the real truths about CBN”.Now people are wondering whether Mohan Babu met RGV to know how his character was portrayed in the movie and ask him to chop it off if needed. We will have to wait and see if Mohan Babu joining YSRCP officially has any impact on Lakshmi’s NTR movie and whether Mohan Babu’s role in the movie will be cut-short by RGV.

AP Planning Board Vice Chairman C Kutumba Rao issued a strong counter to actor Mohan Babu’s son Manchu Manoj on the latter’s social media post passing objectionable comments.
Kutumba Rao accused Mohan Babu of committing a massive education fraud in the name of his four Sri Vidyaniketan institutions for engineering, pharmacy, management and degree courses.
Mohan Babu doesn’t even pay full salaries to the qualified teaching staff as per the accreditation norms as per the National Assessment and Accreditation Council. Lecturers and professors are given meagre salaries as the actor runs the institution like a proprietary concern.
Mr Rao said that Mohan Babu illegally showed Reddy students under Kapu category which led to his institutions becoming ineligible for getting fee reimbursement of Rs 5.16 cr for the last two years. Contrary to his claims of providing free education to 25 per cent students, Mohan Babu is committing irregularities to claim fee reimbursement for the same and he is collecting Rs 3 lakh to Rs 5 lakh towards management seats. The AFRC fee structure norms are being violated as they are collecting Rs 10,000 building fee annually from each student and also Rs 15000 towards training and placement in the final year.
Mr Rao said that the worst part is that Mohan Babu’s institutions are inviting bogus companies to conduct fake jobs placements as the students will get only paper placement orders but will not be given real appointments in genuine offices. Mohan Babu is collecting goodwill from the shops and vendors outside the entrance gate of his institutions and he is also not paying panchayat taxes to the local body.
Actor Mohan Babu’s allegations triggered a sharp and strong reaction from the TDP. AP Planning Board Vice-Chairman C. Kutumba Rao accused Mohan Babu of making politically motivated allegations against the TDP government on the issue of fee reimbursement scheme.
There are virtually no huge dues from the government to the actor’s educational institutions. Of the total Rs. 95 cr in the past 5 years, Rs. 88.57 cr was released and deposited into the bank accounts of the four educational institutions run by Mohan Babu for engineering, pharmacy, management and degree education.
The balance Rs 6.43 crore included Rs 4.53 crore relating to the current academic year which is yet to be completed. The other smaller balance amounts were due to some technical reasons.
Mr. Kutumba Rao said that Mohan Babu was a former Rajya Sabha member but he didn’t uphold that decorum going by how he made cheap allegations which are obviously intended to support a particular political party. He said that these allegations were aimed at creating and spreading lies against the TDP during the election season.
There were rumours recently about Mohan Babu trying to get MP ticket for his son or daughter from one particular party with which he has got some relations. It’s sheer jealousy or vengeance that has driven the actor to defame the Chandrababu Naidu government and nothing else.
Mr. Kutumba Rao questioned the moral stand of Mohan Babu who is taking hundred percent fee reimbursement for his colleges but is collecting foreign funds saying he is giving free education to students.
Dialogue King Mohan Babu launched a surprise protest against the TDP government. He is demanding immediate release of the fee reimbursement funds due to his Still Vidyaniketan students. He sat on dharna on the road in front of his college near Tirupati.
It’s well-known that Mohan Babu has become a close relative of Jaganmohan Reddy family through his son Manchu Vishnu marriage. Against this backdrop, his activities are getting political overtones recently. He has issued emotional comments at the murder of YS Vivekananda Reddy.
The TDP leaders are taking objection to the timing of Mohan Babu’s protest and also the selection of the subject. The YCP has long been bringing pressure on the TDP government on the implementation of fee reimbursement scheme which was originally started by YSR. The YCP has also included this scheme as a priority one in its manifesto. YCP leaders are trying hard to get public attention to this scheme.
Last night, a robbery took place at senior actor Mohan Babu’s residence which is located on the outskirts of Hyderabad. As per the media reports, Mohan Babu’s manager Chanti filed a complaint at Banjara Hills police station, stating that valuable jewellery and liquid cash are found missing in the house.
Cops filed a case and started the investigation. Further developments in the case are yet to be known.
Telangana elections are fast approaching and campaigning is in full swing by all the political parties. Meanwhile, some celebrities are openly expressing their stand on these elections. Earlier, actor and writer Posani Krishna Murali revealed that he wants TRS to form the government. Now Veteran actor Mohan Babu also expressed similar opinion and told that he wish TRS to form government again.
Tummala Nageswara Rao, minister of Telangana visited Vishakhapatnam on the occassion of Swaroopananda birthday. Mohan Babu also attended the event and both of them met there. They both exchanged cordialities and later Mohan Babu expressed his opinion on upcoming elections. He wished TRS to form the government again.
It is known news that Mohan Babu’s sons and daughter also have good relations with KTR. Earlier Manchu Lakshmi was appointed as Swach Telangana brand ambassador by TRS government.
‘Dialogue King’ actor Mohan Babu responded with his characteristic, self-styled dialogue when he was asked to comment on current political situation in AP. He said he was not ready to make any comments right now and he would certainly comment when the time comes for it.
Mohan Babu called on YCP President and Opposition leader Jaganmohan Reddy at the latter’s residence in Lotus Pond area in Hyderabad. He enquired about the health of Jagan who was taking rest after the recent ‘Kodi Kathi’ incident. Mohan Babu told media he only wished for God’s blessings for quick recovery of Jagan. He also cautioned media that it was not a correct time for politicising or sensationalising things now.
