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.
