The Telugu film industry is abuzz with rumours of a massive fall-out between two prominent film families of Andhra Pradesh.
Ramcharan Teja and Allu Arjun who once upon a time were close friends and amicable rivals are now openly at war. Friends close to the two families whisper of a brewing battle between the two almost-brothers, so much so that when Allu Arjun recently celebrated the success of his latest release Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, Ramcharan and his family were missing .Shocking, as Ram’s father Chiranjeevi has always treated Allu Arjun like his own son.
Shedding light on the growing rift between the two stars a source in the know informs, “It has been growing for a long time. With Chiranjeevi as his father, Ramcharan feels he has a marked edge over Allu Arjun. However Arjun who all along took Ramcharan Teja’s Big Brother role in his stride, now feels he has raced ahead of Ramcharan at the boxoffice, what with his latest film doing far better business than Ramcharan’s last.”
There is also the additional father factor. Ramacharan feels Chiranjeevi puts his family way ahead of Allu Arjun or any other film family in Andhra. Allu Arjun feels his father produced Allu Arvind is no less an achiever.
“The rivalry between the two families has reached a point of no return. A lot depends on the maturity shown by the two fathers to patch up the differences between the two families. Because otherwise Ram and Arjun are on a rampage. They will stop at nothing in their mutual game of oneupmanship,” warns the knowledgeable source.
