TIRUPATI: Jubilation marked the launching of a new hotel where ‘Rowdy Vada’, ‘Peddarayadu Masala Dosa’ and ‘Assembly Rowdy Idly’ were sold by none other than actor M Mohan Babu, who enacted the title roles in those films.
A tiffin centre, in front of Sri Vidyaniketan College at Rangampeta in Chandragiri mandal of Chittoor district, was recently inaugurated by Mohan Babu, who personally served the food items to the students as well as public, who thronged the restaurant to relish the cuisine that were captioned in the name of film titles.
However, the restaurant was set up not to make profit but to do charity. The proceedings from the tiffin centre went to a person, who lost his leg and was unable to take care of his family. The gesture was part of ‘Memu Saitham’ programme, started by film actress and Mohan Babu’s daughter Lakshmi Manchu. It may be recalled here that ‘Memu Saitham’, which is being telecast by a private TV channel, is a popular show wherein Rakul Preet Singh sold vegetables, Rana Daggubati donned the coolie’s hat, Akhil Akkineni drove an auto and Shriya worked as sales girl in a supermarket. The amount they collected from the job was donated to the show which, in turn, will donate the money to the needy.
