Sharwanand's Scenes Used For Corona Awareness
Tollywood filmmaker Maruthi is known for comedy entertainers. His lead actor suffers from some medical condition in his films in general. He chooses to present his heroes with different characterizations. While Nani suffers from forgetfulness in 'Bhale Bhale Magadivoy', Sharwanand suffers from OCD(Obsessive Compulsion Disorder) in 'Mahanubhavudu'.
In the wake Covid-19 pandemic, Sharwanand's characterization in the film has become a hot topic in social media. It is known that the doctors are advising people to maintain cleanliness by extensively using hand sanitizers. Sharwa does the same thing in the film which was released 3 years ago. He always carries sanitizer with him and he is very particular about cleanliness. Netizens are using those scenes for memes to generate fun as the people are gripped with coronavirus fear. Hundreds of memes on coronavirus are made with 'Mahanubhavudu' scenes. YouTube videos of Sharwa are getting thousands of views. Tiktok is also flooded with imitation videos.
Director Maruthi came to know about the development and responded to it. He said "I'm receiving calls and messages on Mahanubhavudu. We had some apprehensions when we were making the film but we went ahead because it was meant to generate fun." He concluded saying that "Everybody is a Mahanubhavudu now." Nobody would disagree with Maruthi's observation, isn't it?
