Not even a fraction of the audience are aware that Pavan Tej Konidela, who is Chiranjeevi's family member, is seen in a short role in 'Acharya'. Even Mega fans didn't know about it until they read Pavan Tej's tweet seeking everyone's blessings on the day of the release of 'Acharya'.
In 2021, in an interview, the 'Ee Kathalo Paathralu Kalpitham' actor said that he was playing a very good role in 'Acharya'. "It gives me great satisfaction to act with Chiranjeevi babai more than playing lead roles. Upon his recommendation, Koratala Siva garu auditioned me for the role and I was picked," Pavan Tej said.
It's not clear whether some portions were edited out in the final cut. But Pavan Tej has completely gone unnoticed. Most audiences are asking, 'Where is he in the film?' He is apparently seen in an action scene in the second half.
