Padma Bhushan Megastar Chiranjeevi urged his fans to stay back at home and not to try to come to Vizag to witness the awarding of honorary doctorate by the Andhra University. In a statement released to the press, Chiranjeevi says, 'I convey my heartfelt thanks to all those who greeted me after the announcement by the Andhra University about awarding the doctorate. I have received a number of phone calls, SMS messages, e-mails and other kinds of greetings from many of my well-wishers, friends and fans from within and outside the State. I thank you one and all. I came to know that some of my fans are getting ready to reach Vizag to meet me personally at the Andhra University on November 6. But that convocation would be held in a hall which could accommodate only few thousands of people and that too in presence of some special invitees. Immediately after the convocation, I will return to Hyderabad. Hence I may not be able to meet anyone personally which might disappoint you. I don't want such situation. Through this statement I would like to appeal all my fans to stay back at their respective places and watch it through television channels in their news coverage. Hope all my fans would understand my feelings.
