It was surprising to see Ram Gopal Varma changing his mind on the title of his upcoming movie Bejawada, which was earlier titled Bejawada Rowdilu. The filmmaker's decision for rechristening the movie stunned the audience, as the director was adamant to change it from the day it was launched. However, now the reason behind the move has been revealed.
If reports are to be believed, Nagarjuna told Ram Gopal Varma to change the title, Bejawada Rowdilu to Bejawada. The doting father, who is not happy after Naga Chaitanya's Dhada bombed at the Box Office, seems to be taking extra care towards his son's career. He does not want the budding actor's film to be associated with controversies. Hence, he advised the filmmaker to change it, claims a report.
Ram Gopal Varma, who did not reveal the real reason behind the change of title, refused to talk about it. He said, “Kaaranaala valla Bezawada Rowdilu peru Bezawaada gaa maarcha. kaaranam emitani ememi voohaalu chesukunna asalu kaaranam naa okkadike thelusu."
Bejawada Rowdilu is said to be based on the real life 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 Bejawada features Naga Chaintanya and Amala Paul in the leads.
