We are united: Allu Arjun

A section of the media has been writing that either Pawan Kalyan is distancing himself from megastar Chiranjeevi or Chiru and his other family members are putting Pawan aside. 

Soon after these reports came prominently on mainstream media, Chiranjeevi`s second brother Nagababu spoke to a news channel and condemned them.

Now, Allu Arjun also says that it is unfair to say that they are not with Pawan Kalyan.

"Just because we could not attend one function, coming to conclusion that there are splits between us is totally unfair and we are united. We, after all, are family. If media criticizes our films, I don`t mind but scrutinizing family relations is not fair. I am hurt by the reports," he told the media at a press conference of 7Up brand event held on Wednesday, November 23, 2011 in Hyderabad.

"We have four or five actors in our family and at least 6 films release every year, sometimes it is not possible to attend all the film functions," he added.

On November 19th, Pawan Kalyan`s Panjaa had its audio launch amidst fans but none of the stars from mega family - Chiru, Ram Charan, Naga Babu, Allu Arjun - were spotted at the ceremony. Nor was Chiru`s brother-in-law and senior producer Allu Aravind present. 

Ram Charan is busy shooting in China, and Allu Arjun was stuck in traffic, so he could not come to the ceremony. So this led to speculation that all is not well among mega family heroes. In the past, at least one member from mega family attended whenever a Pawan Kalyan film had its audio function. Added to that, Pawan Kalyan`s speech at the stage aggravated the situation. 

He said: "I used to have a doubt. Whether the audiences are coming to see me or because I am megastar Chiranjeevi`s brother. I never believed in the concept of heredity. It took nearly five years for me to prove my individuality."

But now with Allu Arjun also completely denying any splits between them, the rumours can abate.
