Sometime back there were news in the media that Pawan Kalyan lost his cool and slapped the Jabardasth comedian Shakalaka Shankar for his misbehaviour and arrogance on Sardaar Gabbar Singh’s sets. However, Shankar denied the reports in the interview.
Pawan did not slap me:Shakalaka Shankar clarified
“Pawan Kalyan is God for me and everyone knows how much I admire him. He personally called me and gave me this role,” said Shankar, who
also revealed that Pawan was so jovial with him that he even used to call him and make him sing local folk songs. Shankar said he also prepared
Chepala pulusu for Pawan and that the Power Star liked it immensely.
When asked about the slapping incident, Shankar said, “If I would not do a scene properly, Pawan would warn me, and that’s it. It is not true that
he slapped me”. Shankar also also asked the media to clarify from any of the director or producer he has worked with so far to know about his
punctuality and behaviour on the sets.
