During one of the interviews with Scroll In. Crazy Mohan was if he has ever gotten into trouble for writing comedy. To which he replied, "Unless you write about politics or vulgarity, your freedom of speech will not be restricted. So I do not write politics or vulgarity. Even if I do so by mistake, Balaji will cut it out. If we have almost completed over 1,000 dramas this year with Chocolate Krishna, that is what I will call the success of Crazy Creations." 

RIP, Crazy Mohan!
