Singer SP Balasubrahmanyam has claimed that there was partiality towards Bollywood celebrities at 'Change Within' meet hosted by PM Narendra Modi. SP Balasubrahmanyam has written a Facebook post on how several Bollywood celebs managed selfies with PM Modi but they took away his phone.
"We were asked to leave our cellphones with... security personnel and were given tokens for the same. But I was bewildered at the STARS taking selfies with... PM on that day," he wrote. Balasubrahmanyam added, "THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM?????" SPB thanked Ramoji Raoji, (Eenadu), because of whom he was able to attend a reception hosted by our Hon. Prime Minister at his home on the 29th of Oct.
The meeting reportedly saw no big representation from the southern film industry. Telugu producer Dil Raju was the only representative from the south apart from SPB. Recently, entrepreneur Upasana Konidela, wife of actor Ram Charan, in a Twitter post expressed that the meeting saw no representation from the south film industry and she requested PM Modi to look into the issue.
