In a recent media interaction, Yandamuri said: ‘If we switch on the TV, Serials will keep coming one after the other with the concepts like – ‘Nee Mogude, Naa Mogudu’, ‘Neeku Naaku Okade Mogudu’, ‘Nee Kotha Mogude Naa Patha Mogudu’. Then, It’s ‘Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu’ which is loosely based on ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. They were collecting Rs 15 from each of the 10 lakh applicants and it collectively amounts to Rs 1.5 crore.”
He further added that, “Out of it, They were offering us Rs 6 lakh just alike biscuits given to dogs. Earn, Not By Luck! Better to buy a lottery ticket rather than craving for it. I hate these government for banning the lotteries. Don’t ban lotteries…If you wish to ban, then ban everything! Even the poor had to spend Rs 15 from their pocket to send SMSes. There is nothing worse than it. I don’t know if you agree with me or not.”
It is already a known fact that Yandamuri had fallout with Chiranjeevi after he disapproved his political entry with Praja Rajyam Party. Earlier too, he made objectionable comments on Ram Charan.
