In an interview with a leading daily, Chiyaan Vikram made a critical comment, as he said, "Look at Rana Daggubati. He started in the Telugu industry and came to Bollywood but he hadn't made any headway in the south. Now he's not bothered about the Telugu industry. To work in Bollywood, I have to leave everything and come here."
This statement was not received well by Rana Daggubati and he took to Twitter to shoot back at Vikram. He wrote, "Dear Mr.Vikram I see you quote me and my directions in quite a few media interactions of yours recently. It is best if you focus on your.....Career that isn't headed in the right direction with close to 10 odd disasters in your kitty I'm barely 2 1/2yrs old as an actor and......"
He added, "You are almost close to 25yrs. Stay put on urs as I am on mine ;) not take anything away still a huge fan of few of your films ;)"
