'Mohan Babu gets one year jail!' read a headline in andhrajyothy.com. The report was one among many that were circulating on the internet today that claimed the actor-filmmaker was sentenced to one year jail term by Errum Manzil court, Hyderabad in a cheque bounce case that was filed in 2010. Mohan Babu has now clarified the matter and rubbished recent news pertaining to the case.

In a Twitter post, he wrote, "Just heard about the false news propaganda by a few TV networks. Much to their disappointment, I am at my home in Hyderabad."

The reports claimed that the case was filed by Telugu filmmaker YVS Chowdary, against Mohan Babu, after a cheque, amounting to Rs 40.50 lakh was given to the former for his work in Saleem. There were conflicting reports that claimed the cheque had bounced due to insufficient funds or it was not honoured in the first place. It was also reported that Chowdary decided to take legal action against Babu and the court had issued one year jail term in the matter. However, Mohan Babu's tweet has trashed any such developments in the case.

The controversy emerged after Mohan Babu recently joined a political party in Andhra Pradesh. Social media users are under the impression that the cheque bounce case verdict is a result of him joining the political party.
