Venkatesh Maha on Rocky
Telugu Director Venkatesh Maha has got himself into a controversy by criticizing the pan-India film KGF 2. The filmmaker known for films like C/o Kancharapalem and Modern Love Hyderabad called Yash starrer senseless and mindless.
Venkatesh was in a round table conversation with other filmmakers namely Nandini Reddy, Indraganti Mohana Krishna, Shiva Nirvana, and Vivek Athreya. He slammed the KGF protagonist character Rocky bhai played by Yash.
In the viral video, director Venkatesh Maha can be seen talking about a film. He didn’t take the name, but it is clear that he is talking about KGF Chapter 2. The director said he feels absurd when the protagonist’s mother wants him to get all the gold and become rich with the help of people. He abused the character by saying, “Neech Kamine Kutte”.

Venkatesh feels Pop-corn movies are something that people don’t care about the story but care more about the Pop-corn in the tub and if they are encouraging people to watch such stuff they’re giving the public the wrong message and he also finds fault with the public for encouraging such content.
The video has now gone viral and his words have backfired on him as fans want him to apologize ASAP.
Look at his face….! “ May be his mother and father didnt teach him how to respect others. Iam thinking, how much he has abused his own mother like this ” 😊 “Maklige olle budhi kalsbekithu” e thara gaandu nan maklu utkothirlilla. @mahaisnotanoun #InsecureLoaferVenkateshMaha pic.twitter.com/eYhXfWMorC

#KGF2 is a HIGH-level cinematic experience kind of movie. It's proven at BO, no need to debate.
The core plot itself is to make her mother proud wherever she is!
Making derogatory comments movie like this shows how sick @mahaisnotanoun is.
