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.
Chaos over the fate of Nagarjuna's Rajanna has come to an end, as the Andhra Pradesh Film Chamber of Commerce has given green signal for its release. However, it has banned director and the father of SS Rajamouli, S Vijayendra Prasad for cheating a few producers.
