Chiranjeevi seems to be ready for a patch up with arch-rival Mohan Babu and sources say that the actor-turned-politician did not take the latter’s walking out from the awards function hosted by MAA, to heart.
Despite Mohan Babu blaming the organisers — Chiru’s kin Allu Arvind and Ram Charan are on the board of directors — for breaching protocol and sidelining actors who were not from the Chiranjeevi and Akkineni families, Chiru got in touch with Mohan Babu over the phone. “Chiranjeevi garu called up three days after the fiasco. It was just a courtesy call and they didn’t broach the topic of the awards function,” says a source in the Manchu family.
Mohan Babu too reportedly didn’t talk about the incident and their short conversation was apparently confined to health and other issues. In fact, it was this newspaper which had reported earlier that the arch-rivals had patched up and were meeting over food and drinks on weekends quite often.
Chiranjeevi had also attended a special party hosted by Mohan Babu at this residence when Kannada star Ambarish was in town for the CCL finals.
