Hyderabad: Actor Naresh on Tuesday took objection to the way senior actor Srikanth reacted to his video statement while he was speaking about actor Sai Dharam Tej’s bike accident.
It may be recalled that a video statement was released on Twitter on Saturday which has actor Naresh saying that he had actually wanted to stop Dharam Tej and his son Naveen from going out on that fateful evening. Naresh also recalled how tragic accidents in the past involving sons of Telugu celebrities left the families in grief.
Soon after it, actor Srikanth responded to Naresh’s video bite saying Naresh should not have made such a statement at this point of time. Srikanth said, “Dharam Tej’s family is disturbed by the incident and actor Naresh recalling the deaths and past incidents is not appropriate. I appeal to everyone in the film industry not to comment or release a statement at this juncture.”
Reacting on this, actor Naresh said Srikanth should have been careful while releasing such statements. “Dharam Tej was not speeding when he fell off his bike. His bike slid because of the mud. Srikanth should be careful before reacting to it. I spoke about the accidents occurred in the past which involved Telugu celebs. But, I didn’t speak about people who died,” said the actor. He further politely requested Srikanth not to give such statements further.
