In the audio launch of ‘Rey’, one person was absent and that was the uncle of the hero Sai Dharam Tej, Chiranjeevi. It was earlier planned by the organizers that they would bring Chiranjeevi along with Pawan in the program. It is also said that invitation was sent to Chiranjeevi by YVS but Chiranjeevi did not turn up. Sources said that Chiranjeevi said that he had other engagements and cannot come to the show.
However, though YVS postponed the show when Pawan Kalyan said that he had other appointments and the show only happened after Pawan said that he is free in 17th Jan, no postponement was planned for Chiranjeevi. Industry is buzzing with various gossips regarding Chiranjeevi’s absence and many reasons are coming out. Some are saying that Chiranjeevi had to attend the AICC meeting on that day. However, the news that is doing the rounds is Chiranjeevi did not attend the program because of some personal reasons.
