Posani Krishna Murali is an Indian screenwriter, actor, director and producer who primarily works in Telugu cinema. He worked as a writer for over 150 Telugu films and directed several commercially successful films. In 2009, he also contested in Andhra Pradesh state legislative assembly elections from Chilakaluripet constituency but lost the elections. He is known for his outspokenness and ferocious nature.
He speaks his mind on any issue without caring anyone and honestly expresses opinions. Though Posani appears as angry, movie industry people say that he is very soft inside and has a very good nature. But he doesn’t tolerate dishonest or corrupt people.
The recent surgical strikes conducted by the Modi government have been on discussion, not only in mainstream English media but also in regional news channels across the country.
However things got really out of hand on TV5 News, a local Telugu channel, on Thursday after it witnessed a live fight between screenwriter turned actor Posani Krishna Murali and senior Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao.
Both the participants of the debate have been known for their no-holds barred comments on various media outlets.
The issue began when Posani was all praise for Modi for the recent strikes, and Rao took offence.
Even as cross-talk began on the show, Posani is seen getting really agitated and telling the anchor “I had already told you that I don’t want to resort to a dog fight. We are not dogs to fight and argue. We are human beings,” before going into a tangent of profane language.
Hanumantha Rao soon followed suit as the duo began to indulge in a shouting match.
Both the panelists were then seen getting up to confront each other physically, as the channel’s staff rushed in to stop them.
