It started with Praja Rajyam mahila wing chief Sobha Rani, who addressed a press conference exclusively to attack Roja, who has been going hammer and tongs against Chiranjeevi and Pavan Kalyan for the last couple of weeks. Using the choicest abuses, Sobha went on to allege that Roja has a shady background, which is too big to write a book. Everybody in the film industry knew how Roja had “entertained” film producers and even their sons to grow as a heroine; how she blackmailed Selvamani to marry her and how she runs bar in the night and darbar in the day. “Roja has a dirty behaviour and attire. Her brothers run belt shops in Chittoor. She is consuming liquor and dancing on the streets. We have been keeping quiet all these days; otherwise, our youth would have thrashed her long ago,” Sobha said.

'Roja Slept with Producers's Sons' ...
That political criticism has crossed all limits of decency and reached ugly proportions has once again proved with Telugu Mahila president Roja and Mahila Rajyam president Sobha Rani abusing each other in the filthiest language. Of course, media played its own role in adding fuel to the fire.
Electronic media did not lose much time in instigating Roja, who is presently in Tirupati. And Roja replied in equally filthy language. “Who is Sobha Rani and what is her political stature? Let her know how Pavan Kalyan had affairs with several women and also the background of Renu Desai,” she said. She made similar comments against Chiranjeevi and his illegal contacts with several artistes in the film industry. Not limiting themselves in airing these abusive language without any censoring, the TV channels even conducted opinion polls on these comments! The only saving grace in the entire episode is the regrets expressed by Chiranjeevi over Sobha Rani’s comments against Roja
