Speaking at the press meet, Bellamkonda Suresh said, "Saran hails from my village and he used to ask for movie tickets. I have no financial dealings with this person. This is a deliberate attempt to defame my family's reputation. He has also targeted my sons, Sreenivas and Ganesh".
The producer also conveyed, "If there are proofs, he should produce them before the police and the media. I am ready for any punishment if I am proven wrong.
Bellamkonda Sreenivas also conveyed that his sons or he will not be tolerating any defamation hereafter and would seek the law if anyone attempts to draw his family in unnecessary issues.
