Those who have watched the pre-release event of the film Padi Padi Leche Manasu expressed different opinions on the speech delivered by Allu Arjun. Allu Arjun has given respect to the entire cast and crew by mentioning their names along with GARU. He also addressed Sharwanand as Sharwanand Garu and has also given an explanation for the same.
During his speech, Allu Arjun said, “There is a reason that I am giving respect to Sharwa even though he is my friend. All of us should give respect to others for their age, stature and the image they have in the society. We just can not disrespect them for any reason or because they are in the politics. One day, while watching TV, I saw a person shouting, “Chiranjeevi ni Piluvu”, and I did not understand that. How can he be so disrespectful to someone who is a big star. Why can not he mention him as Chiranjeevi Garu?”
He also said that, “People should not disrespect Pawan Kalyan just because he entered politics. He is still, “Pawan Kalyan Garu””
