Before its release, Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu created big howl over the remuneration fight between director Puri Jagannath and producer DVV Danayya. This row created a lot of confusion over its release date. The director and producer duo reluctantly came together to clarify it, but Pawan Kalyan remained completely away from the scene.
After its release, Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu continued to court controversies. The TDP, YSRC and Telangana activists protested against its makers and stalled its screening in several places claiming that its story, few dialogues and characters targeted them. They even attacked Puri's office and destroyed it. The makers immediately made necessary changes and were able to pacify them. But Pawan once again remained silent and did not make any statement on it.
However, Pawan Kalyan was not in the city for a couple of weeks. He had left for Europe for a family trip soon after completing the post production works of Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu. He was reportedly in continuous touch with director Puri Jagannath and producer Danayya and giving advises, but he stayed unavailable for media. It should be said here that he is the real Power Star, who never looses his cool over any rumour or controversy.
