Though Ravi Teja is very friendly with many people in the industry, not many have come forward to defend him in the drugs scandal. Many kept away from the whole episode and only a few tried to back him. But, now actress Manchu Lakshmi has come out in support of the Mass Maharaja.
Without directly referring to the scandal, she said Raviteja is very systematic and highly disciplined when it came to personal and food related issues. She says he does not have any bad habits. He is very careful about food. She recalled that once she had gone to his home without informing him. "If I inform, he would serve leafy vegetables and other natural foods. Even his mother complained several times about his frugal food habits. Once, I and he had meals at Ramoji Film City," she said. While Raviteja ate little and left for his room. When he returned later, he found her still eating. He chided her for eating too much.
She said it is inconceivable that Raviteja would have bad habits.
