For the past couple of days, social media has been blasting noted YouTuber Praneeth Hanumanthu and a few other influencers for their controversial and insensitive jokes on a little girl and her father during a live conversation. Netizens and several Tollywood celebrities urged the Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to take strict action against the YouTubers.

Earlier today, actors Sudheer Babu and Kartikeya took to X and expressed their regret for collaborating with Praneeth Hanumanthu for their recently released movies, Harom Hara and Bhaje Vaayu Vegam, respectively. “I feel so disgusted by the fact we had #PraneethHanumanthu casted in #HaromHara. Sincere apologies from me and my entire team. We didn’t know what a pathetic creature this man is,” Sudheer tweeted.

On the other hand, Kartikeya wrote, “Yes i have given the interview to them..But it was part of my movie promotion. Like how i give interviews to all other channels before a movie release and frankly i was a bit shocked by the questions then but then I dint want to make a scene there so tried my best to be as sportive as possible.”

The young hero went on to say, “And yes i should not have been part of it, I had to do the interview as one of the job responsibilities as a lead actor trying to make his film reach to wider audience but i had no intentions of encouraging such content but sadly i had to be part of it and i feel bad for that.”
