Noted film personalities, including Telugu film hero Mahesh Babu and singer S P Balasubrahmanyam, today returned their Rythu Bandhu cheques to the officials concerned.
Balasubramanyam returned his cheque for Rs 23,700 for the 5.37 acres of land he owns at Solipet in Shabad mandal, and Mahesh Babu's wife Namrata Shirodkar returned a Rs 16,000 cheque for the four acres of land the actor owns at Nagaram in Maheshwaram mandal of Ranga Reddy district.
Film producer Y Ravishankar too returned his Rs 16,000 cheque to the officials at his residence in Banjara Hills.
They appeared to have taken a cue from Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao who said that the rich and others who did not require government help should return their cheques, and did so himself.
