A month ago, Siddharth showed his displeasure against media on Twitter. He posted, “3rd grade 'N'ews channels will sell their families to make up an hour of TV. Clarifying their garbage & lies is not worth our time. Ignore!" But the reason for his outburst was unknown.
Following his statement, the AP Film Journalists' Association demanded an unconditional apology from him and boycotted his 180 pressmeet. Later, it wrote to the AP Film Chamber of Commerce and South Indian Film Chamber of commerce to ban him until he admits his mistakes. But, the film chambers did not heed to the organization's request. Later, it approached Dasari Narayana Rao to make Siddharth to apologize.
The senior director found that Siddharth was guilty and without much-delay he called Murali Mohan, the president of Movie Artiste Association. Dasari Narayana Rao told him that being a popular celebrity, Siddharth was not supposed make such a comment. Hence, Siddharth should apologize. The president tried to convince him by saying that it was not on the Telugu media but Dasari replied that then the actor might have made the statement against the national media. So, he would make it a national issue, if Bommarillu star does not fall into line.
Later, Dasari spoke with producer Dil Raju, who is producing Siddharth's Oh My Friend, that the producer should make Siddharth to tender an unconditional apology.
Dasari Narayana Rao seems to have decided to take on youngsters, whose head is not placed firmly on his shoulder. The veteran filmmaker, who took a dig at Ram Charan Teja recently, wants Siddharth to apologise for his recent statement against media.
