The controversy of Movie Artist Association (MAA) has damaged its reputation. Its president Naresh accusing ex-president Sivaji Raja of corruption in the association became a hot topic in media.
This issue did not come to an end and they have been locking horns with each other on every occasion. President Naresh not coming to some events and Jeevitha-Rajasekhar team conducting an EC meeting against Naresh have made things worse.
MAA founder and president Chiranjeevi too tried to calm them down but it did not serve any purpose. Jeevitha and Rajasekhar are always found throwing stones at Naresh during press meets.
Recently, MAA-2020 diary inauguration became a venue for this controversy. While all the seniors were seated on stage, Rajasekhar forcibly pulled the mike away from Paruchuri Gopala Krishna which irritated many. Rajasekhar's behaviour did not go well with Chiranjeevi especially as he is visibly upset. Chiru expressed his displeasure over the senior actor's actions which made Rajasekhar to angrily walk away from the event. With all this happening, MAA diary inauguration turned out to be a centre of discussion.
