The teaser of Mahesh Babu’s Aagadu has not gone well with Power Star fans as the 1: Nenokkadine star seems to be taking a dig at Attarintiki Daredi actor
The Mahesh Babu starrer Aagadu has had its fair share of controversies. Earlier, a fight had erupted between Prakash Raj and Aagadu director Srinu Vaitla on the sets had almost got Prakash Raj banned from the Tollywood industry. Latest we hear that the film’s teaser has irked Pawan Kalyan supporters.
The 50 second teaser which shows Mahesh Babu in fine form, taking an indirect dig on Pawan Kalyan with its outrageously bold dialogues. Mahesh Babu’s lines on Tollywood’s popular punch dialogue culture and the habit of comparing big budget mass heroes with lions and tigers has angered the Power Star fans. Also many feel that the looks and body language of Mahesh Babu seems extremely similar to Pawan Kalyan’s bad cop act in Gabbar Singh. The way the Businessman actor Mahesh Babu sits on the jeep or the way he delivers his lines eerily resemble to the antics of Pawan Kalyan. The Aagadu teaser itself closely matches with the Pawan Kalyan’s Gabbar Singh, given that both the films are high on action and have similar leading characters. The fans are even considering Aagadu as a sequel to Gabbar Singh.
Pawan Kalyan has a wide fan following in Andhra and is the season’s most popular actor given that the actor had floated his own political party. He played an invaluable role in BJP-TDP alliance victory in Lok Sabha elections 2014. With Pawan Kalyan’s name becoming a household favourite, the makers of Aagadu should make sure that they do not play with the sentiments of Pawan Kalyan’s fans any more. It would be interesting to see what superstar Mahesh Babu or the makers of Aagadu have to say about the allegations raised by power star fans.
