OMG! Sudheer Babu Apologises For Casting YouTuber Praneeth In His Telugu film Harom Hara For THIS Reason
Actor Sudheer Babu recently voiced his outrage and disappointment regarding the behavior of YouTuber Praneeth Hanumanthu, who was cast alongside him in the Telugu film "Harom Hara." Praneeth came under fire from netizens for making indecent comments that sexualized a father-daughter bond in one of his videos. Sudheer Babu expressed his condemnation through a strongly worded post on X (formerly Twitter), criticizing Praneeth's inappropriate remarks and emphasizing the need for stricter accountability on social media platforms. 

Sudheer admitted his disgust at the fact that Praneeth was given a role in "Harom Hara." He issued an apology on behalf of himself and the entire team, stating, "For good or bad, I'm not a social media guy nor do I keep up with things. 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. It wasn't in my knowledge."

In his post, Sudheer continued, "I couldn't even dare to go through the entirety social media has exposed about him. Those things are not even worth our puke but they should have our attention at this hour. We should make sure these sick minds shouldn't have a platform for the filth they wanna spread. This isn't freedom of speech by any means." Praneeth, known for his controversial and offensive remarks, faced severe backlash following the exposure of his comments. He issued an apology and edited the video to remove the controversial segment. 

On X, he wrote, "Edited out the problematic part from the video. Unconditionally and unambiguously apologetic about the lapse in judgment. As a creator, my attempt is always to put a smile. Unfortunately, this time I have crossed the line between what is dark and what is distasteful." The situation gained further attention when actor Sai Dharam Tej urged the Deputy Chief Minister and Chief Minister of the state to take strict action against Praneeth. As of now, the team of "Harom Hara" has not released an official statement regarding Sudheer's post and the future involvement of Praneeth Hanumanthu in the project.

"Harom Hara" premiered in theatres on March 31 and is set to be released on an OTT platform soon. The film also features Malvika Nair, Sunil, Jaya Prakash, Akshara, Arjun Gowda, Lakki Lakshman, and Ravi Kale in its cast. This incident underscores the importance of accountability in the digital age, where inappropriate behaviour can quickly come to light and have significant repercussions.
