According to reports, the Andhra Pradesh Film Chamber of Commerce decided to impose the ban on S Vijayendra Prasad and his films, after producer Metikonda Muralikrishna filed a case against him for not refunding his Rs 36 lakhs, which the filmmaker had taken a long ago for providing a story and screenplay. He has allegedly sold the same story to a couple of producers.
Acting on the complaint, the apex body felt that banning his latest movie Rajanna could be unfair because the forthcoming Telugu movie has been in making since a year. Sources say that the APFCC wanted to send a strong message for all those ill-doers and big names like S Vijayendra Prasad will also not be exempted. As a result, he cannot accept any new project from now on until he falls in line.
