Chiru envy about Charan's following

Charan was receiving great words of adulation from a lady who said she was big time fan of Charan. Chiranjeevi who was right there on the scene commented, 'Excuse me, I am still here.. Dont you feel that I would be envy about it'. This is all in a lighter note during a TV show on which Chiranjeevi and Charan appeared together. A guest appeared on the show and said she is a great fan of Chiruta. Talking about the dances, Sowmya (the guest) said that she would give 500 marks out of 10 for his dances. A modest Charan said that he would only rate himself 50%. Reason? He thinks any one could dance great but expressions on face during the dance is a different school and Chiru is the head master of that school. He thinks that it is that area that he should improve.
