Sharrath Marar was very close friend of Pawan Kalyan. Sharrath was in fact Pawan’s shadow in the film industry. However, taking many by shock – including the producers, directors who are close to Pawan in industry, Sharrath had parted ways. The former CEO of Maa TV and the former South Head of the ABCL had decided to move on with his own projects. However, Sharrath has been close to Chiranjeevi, Allu Aravind and other mega family members. While exact reasons for the Sharrath’s distance from Pawan Kalyan are not known, Sharrath has always maintained low-profile about his bond with Pawan and even kept tight-lipped about their parting.
Now, it is the turn of another BFF of Pawan, Raju Ravi Teja. Raju Ravi Teja’s friendship with Pawan began in 2008, which is before PRP times. The ideologies of Raju Ravi Teja and Pawan Kalyan had matched. Since then, Pawan and Raju have been talking to work something for the betterment of society. Like Sharrath, Raju too maintained the low profile. Raju Ravi Teja had later joined Pawan Kalyan’s Janasena in 2014 and played active role. He had subsequently distanced from Janasena for reasons better known to Pawan and Raju Ravi Teja.
Raju Ravi Teja had later joined Janasena and sailed with Pawan for a while. He is said to be upset with the recent developments at Janasena and Pawan Kalyan’s change of behaviour. Raju Ravi Teja has now tendered his resignation and blamed Pawan. He said he is coming out in the open only to counter Pawan’s ‘Jaganmatha blessing’ allegation. Irrespective of allegations and counter allegations, one thing is very clear – two BFFs of Pawan in films and politics have left him in some gap. This is a big blow to Pawan Kalyan!
