Director Venkatesh Maha created a huge controversy by belittling commercial films. He spoke down on KGF 2 and other “Popcorn” films that he believes shouldn’t get so much acclaim.
These statements also affected other directors – Vivek Athreya, Nandini Reddy and Mohankrishna Indraganti who also took part in the interview. In this context, Venkatesh has asked everyone not to blame other directors for his statements.
“There’s a lot of discussion happened in that panel and the 2 mins your are watching is a clip out of the context. It makes me sad that along with me my fellow filmmakers in the panel are also getting trolled. I don’t want any one of them to take a hit for my opinion. They are some of the most respected directors in Telugu film Industry, and I humbly request you all to protect that.” Venkatesh wrote in his social media statement.
Venkatesh, MohanKrishna and others are now getting brutally trolled on social media for their comments on commercial films.
