Prominent Brahmins from Chennai attended a press meet organised
by Dr Mohan Babu at his residence today. Addressing the media, a
senior priest said that Dhenikaina Ready is a good
entertainer and it nowhere insults or hurts the sentiments of the
people from the Brahmin community. It is unfair that some people
from the community, who are against the producer, have tried to
mislead other Brahmins. This kind of incidents will really spoil
the image of the community.
Talking about Brahmins' protest in front of his house, Mohan
Babu had earlier described them as beggars and not real Brahmins.
Irked by his comments, Brahmins had performed Pinda Pradanam rites
in his name. They had also collected donations and sent those
cheques to Mohan Babu. Talking about this incident, another senior
priest condemned their act. Click here to see more pictures of Mohan

He said that Mohan Babu is a very respectful person, who has high regards for Brahmin community. There are several instances of the actor treating Brahmins with great respect in the past. He added, "Conducting Pinda Pradanam rites on his name is not an ethical act. We condemn it and defend the producer against this false propaganda."
