In the first look teaser for ‘Godfather,’ he was referred to as ‘Chiranjeeevi’, with an extra ‘e’ in his name. A few Telugu portals were quick to jump to the assumption that Chiranjeevi had sought a numerologist for the sake of a good hit in the coming days.
It turns out that the rumour was all for naught. There is no such thing as a name change.
According to media reports citing individuals close to the Chiru camp, the extra ‘E’ is due to a typographical error in the first look teaser for ‘Godfather’.
The extra letter has been deleted, and the right spelling has been restored (albeit this has yet to be reflected at the time of publishing this news item), as per the sources.
Chiranjeevi’s fans who quoted the ‘name change’ articles, as they defended the megastar. “If one or two failures would push him to change his name, he must have done it for ‘n’ number of times in his distinguished career. This is just rubbish”, a fan wrote.
Other social media users were busy in leaving comments on ‘Godfather’s production house, for such carelessness in editing the first look teaser.
