Never in an audio function you see a Director insulting an elderly person and specially when he is like a guru. It happened during the audio release of Saleem when director YVS Chowdary spoke some unusual words on Raghavendra Rao.
YVS Chowdary said that,"iam a kind of director who falls 'menatlly in love' with heroine during the making of my movie. This is all i learnt from my guru Raghavendra rao". At this point of time when audience in the audiotorium are going into whistles and claps, Mohan Babu interrupted YVS Chowdary and said that, "it is not correct to use the words like mentally in love and that too following it from your guru. Even i follow my guru Dasari, but not like this. Please don’t attribute this type of words to your guru and never speak wrong about heroine and especially this film’s heroine Ileana."
YVS Chowdary tried to cover his mistake but Mohan Babu doesn’t give him any time and handed over the mike back to the anchor. Yes, it was an art of showing heroines beutifully which Raghavendra rao has started and mastered but this doesn’t mean anything like mentally in love...Mohan babu was right, this kind of words not only damage the Director’s image but also attribute a vulgar character to heroine.
