In the audio release function of Naga Chaitanya’s Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam, character artist Chalapathi Rao uttered foul comments on women. He declared that women are useful in bed in front of all the lead cast and crew in the function. Despite condemning him, some actors include Chai were shown laughing at those comments. Some speculated that Chai is actually enjoying those comments and they backed up their allegations with the program visuals. Chai responded on this controversial issue by saying that some have shown him in an entirely wrong way as his laughs were not a sign of support to Chalapathi Rao’s comments. He also stated that he will not agree with those comments at all.
Respecting women is a way of life for me.The reactions shown on TV weren't for the statement made.Do I agree with it ?Absolutely NOT !

Already his father Nagarjuna, his fiancee Samantha, his heroine from the film Rakul have condemned those comments. Chaitu took the lead and slammed the veteran actor in his style.
