In a historic moment, Manchu Vishnu becomes MAA President again

The Movie Artist Association (MAA) elections, a biennial event in Tollywood, have traditionally been peaceful affairs. However, the 2019 and 2021 elections deviated from this norm, becoming embroiled in conflicts and controversies. The 2021 election, in particular, witnessed a high-profile clash between Manchu Vishnu and Prakash Raj, widely interpreted as a proxy battle between the influential Manchu and Mega families within the industry.

The 2019 elections resembled a tumultuous political campaign, marked by a tense atmosphere, heated arguments, and accusations. In stark contrast, the most recent election concluded with an unexpected air of unity and tranquility. The 26 committee members unanimously decided to forgo the usual electoral process, opting instead for a harmonious resolution.

In a historic moment, Manchu Vishnu becomes MAA President again

Manchu Vishnu retained his position as MAA president, with Raghu Babu elected as General Secretary, Karate Kalyani as Joint Secretary, Shiva Balaji as Treasurer, and Madhumita, Shailaja, and Jai Vani assuming roles as EC Members. Vishnu's performance during his previous two-year term garnered praise from life members, leading to his reelection. He has pledged to continue serving as president until the construction of the new MAA building is finalized.

This election cycle also marks a significant departure from tradition. For the first time in MAA history, there will be no possibility of elections for three years, resulting in a single individual holding the presidency for five consecutive years. The developments in MAA come as a surprise to movie lovers and also outsiders as they have witnessed the bitter rivalry and contest against Prakash Raj panel.

This shows that Manchu Vishnu is winning the hearts of all with his good deeds and commitments to construction of the MAA building and also for the welfare of the members associated with MAA. People are hailing the developments in the MAA and are hoping that the bonhomie and good will between the members will continue in the coming days.
