very very shocking news. అందాల నటుడు శోభన్ baabu ఇక లేరు అంటే నమ్మబుద్దవడం లేదు. అన్ని t.v. channels వారు చాల చాల బాగా coverage ఇచ్చి వారి అభిమానాన్ని చాటుకోవడం హర్షణీయం. ఈ మద్యనే శోభన్ బాబు గారి గురించి చక్కటి ఆర్టికల్ చదవడం సంభవించింది ee bloglo.
- నిగర్వి, నిరడంబురుడు శోభన్ బాబు కి flops చాల తక్కువ.
- NTR, ANR రాజ్య మేలుతున్న కాలం లో కృష్ణ గారు శోభన్ గారు ఒకే సారి stardam అందుకున్నారు. స్వశక్తి తో తమ తమ స్థానాలని పదిల పరుచుకొన్నారు.
- ఆయన నటించిన చిత్రం 'మోస గాడు' విలన్ ఎవరో తెలుసా - మన చిరంజీవే.
- ఆయన మనసుని ఎవరైన నొప్పించారో ఏమో గాని - చాల కాలం నుండి ఆయన సినీ పరిశ్రమకి దూరంగా ఉన్నారు. ఎ సభలకి, సమావేశాలకి attend అవడం లేదు. ఎ functions కి కూడా హాజారు అయిన దాఖలాలు లేవు. ఆఖరకి ఈ మధ్య జరిగిన వజ్రోస్తావాలకి కూడా హాజారు అవలేదు. కారణాలు తెలియదు. వివాదలకి ఎప్పుడు దూరం గా ఉండే శ్రీ శోభన్ బాబు గారికివే నా నివాళులు.
