Speaking at the audio launch event of ‘Bethaludu’ starring Tamil actor Vijay Antony, Yandamuri praised his subtle acting skills and added that most of the Telugu actors do over-action in the name of acting. His comments, which look to have ridiculed the Telugu actors, didn’t go well with Boyapati who was also present at the venue.
When his turn came, Boyapati referred the statement of Yandamuri and said, ‘We have best actors in Telugu film industry. We, writers and directors, should come up with exciting subjects instead of criticizing our heroes for poor acting abilities’.
Boyapati’s words were met with great applause as he gave a clear counter to Yandamuri for derogatory statements against Telugu actors.
