Chiranjeevi rubbished the claims of him suffering from cancer.

Chiranjeevi has rubbished several reports claiming that the superstar is suffering from cancer.

Chiranjeevi is one of the most popular actors of South. The veteran actor has been appreciated for films like Indra, Swayamkrishi, Gang Leader etc. The actor who is currently busy shooting for Bhola Shankar recently addressed the rumors of him being diagnosed with cancer. The South megastar put an end to such speculations by sharing the content of his test through social media.

Chiranjeevi wrote in Telugu on his Twitter handle, “Sometime back I spoke about the need to raise awareness about cancer while inaugurating a cancer centre. I told you that cancer can be prevented if you get regular medical checkups done. I was alert and took a colon scope test. I said that non-cancerous polyps were found and removed. I just said, ‘If I had not done the test earlier, it would have turned out to be cancer’. That’s why everyone should take precautions and get medical test/screening done’, I said it. (sic)”.

He further added, “But some media organizations did not understand it properly and started scrolling and web articles saying ‘I got cancer’ and ‘I survived due to treatment’. This has created unnecessary confusion. Many Well wishers are sending messages about my health. This clarification is for all of them. Also an appeal to such journalists. Don’t write rubbish without understanding the subject. Because of this many people are scared and hurt. (sic) )”

Bhola Shankar will also feature Chiranjeevi, Tamannaah Bhatia, Rashmi Gautam, Vennela Kishore, Keerthy Suresh, Arjun Das and Tulsi in pivotal roles. Chiranjeevi will play the role of a protective brother to Keerthy Suresh in the film, which is a complete commercial entertainer. Tamannaah is playing the female lead in the film. Sai Pallavi was initially considered for the role of Chiranjeevi’s sister, but she could not go ahead with the offer.

Ramabrahmam Sunkara produces the film under AK Entertainment. Bhola Shankar is expected to hit the silver screens on August 11, 2023. Meanwhile, Chiranjeevi is also basking in the success of his recent film Waltair Veeraiya, which was directed by KS Ravindra. The film entered the Rs 100 crore club within a week of its release last month and became one of the highest-grossing Telugu films of the year.
