He doesn’t sound over smart by using idioms all the time. No slow motion fights challenging physics theories. Hero doesn’t give re-entry for every two minutes. He also doesn’t give long speeches on farmers and soldiers in last ten minutes. Even this is called cinema in that place)”.

Soon after his post, Mahesh Babu fans assumed that the director has taken a dig at their star for his last films, Sarileru Neekevaru and Maharshi. Rather being submissive, he hit it back stating,  “THIS IS FOR ALL THE TROLLERS, THE COWARDS WHO HIDE BEHIND FAKE NAMES, HOLLOW IDENTITIES. I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU. THE PROBLEM IS YOU PEOPLE DON’T HAVE ANY SELF ESTEEM THAT’S THE REASON YOU CHOOSE TO HIDE IN A CROUP, BEHIND A FAKE ID. YOU NEED AN IDOL, A RELIGION, A CASTE OR A COMMUNITY TO FEEL SAFE. IT’S TRUE. I GET IT. WITHOUT THAT FAKE SENSE OF SECURITY, YOU ARE NOTHING. DEEP DOWN YOU KNOW IT, THAT’S WHY YOU HURL ABUSES, THROW AROUND INSULTS THE MOMENT SOMEONE POINTS A FINGER. YOU GUYS ARE WEAK. EARLIER PEOPLE USED TO CET AFFECTED AND IT GAVE YOU A SENSE OF POWER BUT NOW EVERYONE KNOWS THAT YOU TROLLS ARE DOCS THAT ONLY BARK BUT CAN’T BITE. AT LEAST DOCS GET REWARDED FOR THEIR LOYALTY. YOU GET NOTHING. SO KEEP WATCHING OUR TAILS BECAUSE NOTHING WILL STOP ME FROM TELLING THE STORIES THAT I WANT TO TELL. I AM ONLY 31. IT’S ONLY BEEN 4 YEARS. THERE’S A LONG WAY TO CO.”(sic)
