Chennai Brahmins defend Mohan Babu
While different Brahmin communities have been opposing the screening of movie Dhenikaina Ready in Andhra Pradesh, a group of Brahmins from Chennai has come to the support producer Mohan Babu. The senior priests' team say that there is nothing in the film that hurts the sentiments of the community. They condemn the people, who performed Pinda Pradanam rites on the name of the producer.

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 Babu's press meet

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."
