Telugu comedian Brahmanandam was mobbed in Ananthpur when he was in the city for the installation of an idol at Pathur Veerabrahmendra Swamy Temple. The incident happened recently where the actor left the venue fuming.
"He was invited to unveil the idols Govindmamba Sametha Veerabrahmendra Swamy, Srimat Kalika Devi and installation of Sri Nandeeswara Dhwaja Stambham. We tried to keep it a low key affair, but the public got to know and showed up in thousands," Chandrasekhar, organiser of the event, told IANS.
Brahmanandam was planned to address the people, who had gathered in thousands at the venue. But the comedian left the place after unveiling the idols as he was irked by the public's gesture.
"He was supposed to address the gathering after unveiling the idols, but he was so irked by the behaviour of the crowd that he left very quickly. The police had to intervene and control the mob which tried to approach Brahmanandam," he added.
Brahmanandam, who is a recipient of the Padma Shri award, has acted in over 1,000 films in a career lasting over two decades. Some of his memorable flicks are Aha Naa Pellanta, Appula Appa Rao, King, Ready and Balupu.
