Around 18 film heroes had a ‘secret’ meeting at Annapurna seven acres studios in the wake of the casting couch issue raised by Sri Reddy. The heroes, reportedly led by Chiranjeevi, want the film industry not to provide content to TV channels.
Heroes Mahesh Babu, Jr. NTR, Nani, Ram Charan, Allu Arvind Suresh Babu, Nagarjuna, Venkatesh, Naga Chaitanya, Manchu Laxmi, Sumanth, Naga Babu and others have attended the meeting. However, Nandamuri hero Balakrishna has skipped the meeting.
They discussed current industry and media issues. No media was allowed to the venue to maintain privacy. Chiranjeevi wanted to deny content for New channels and provide contest to only Entertainment channels. While some have expressed that such kind of act will be a setback for small films and small producers who get free publicity through news channels.
