Ram Gopal Varma's movie Bejawada Rowdilu on the real life
rivalry on Vijaywada's politicians seems to be in never-ending
title controversy. The movie, which was halted a few months ago by
the Vijayawada cops in the coastal city, is still running through
the same title issue, as an advocate has filed a case against the
makers of the film to change the title.
Sarvodaya Mandali, a Gandhian organization, filed a petition a
few months ago to cancel the shooting of the film on the lines that
the movie would disturb the peaceful atmosphere and harmony in the
coastal city. It also said that the title of the film shows Vizag
in a bad light and urged the movie bosses to change it. In the
latest development, the advocate has filed a petition echoing the
same sentiment and has request the court to direct Ram Gopal Varma
to rename his film.
Hence, the High Court has issued an order for the Regional
Censor Board to verify the case and take appropriate action if the
movie has bypassed the censor rules. Bejawada Rowdilu is
said to be based on the conflicts between two politicians Devineni
Nehru and late legislator Vangaveeti Ranga. Their rivalry took an
ugly turn when they lost their close members of the family. As a
result, Nehru's two siblings were assassinated and Ranga and his
brother were killed in 1980s.
Vivek Krishna directorial movie features Naga Chaintanya,
Genelia D'Souza and Preetika Rao in the leads.
