"Hi Nanna" is an upcoming Indian Telugu-language romantic family movie starring Nani and Mrunal Thakur, which held its pre-release event on November 29. During the event, the big screen flashed pictures of actors Rashmika Mandanna and Vijay Deverakonda, who have no connection to the movie.
Fans and audiences are furious, labeling it as cheap publicity.
- On November 29, the team of the upcoming Telugu romantic family movie, "Hi Nanna" starring Nani and Mrunal Thakur, held their pre-release event ahead of its release on December 7.
However, an unusual incident occurred during this event involving other actors who were not part of the film.
- Indian actors Vijay Devarakonda and Rashmika Mandanna's personal photos appeared on the screen, leading to laughter from Nani while Mrunal appeared shocked.
- The incident was unusual as both the actors are not part of the movie "Hi Nanna".
The host of the event, Suma, quickly intervened, joking with the cameraman to divert the attention.
Which photos were displayed on the screen?
- It was a picture of Vijay Devarakonda's trip to the Maldives, which he had posted on his Instagram account.
- And a picture of Rashmika Mandana near the same swimming pool, which she posted on Instagram.
- Although both posted at different times, this sparked dating rumors among fans who noticed a pattern of them posting pictures in the same location.
- So at that time, fans edited these two photos together, spreading the word that both of them were together.
Fans are now expressing anger that these unrelated pictures were displayed at an event for someone else’s movie, calling it a cheap publicity stunt.
