Ram Gopal Varma's yet another movie is making news for all the
wrong reasons. His upcoming Telugu film Bejawada Rowdilu,
which is based on the real life rivalry between two politicians,
has irked the people of Vijayawada (formerly known as Bejawada) and
they are demanding him to change the title. But the filmmaker is
not keen to rechristen the film.
Sarvodaya Mandali, a Gandhian organization, and several social
groups are against the film claiming that it will disturb the the
peaceful atmosphere and harmony of Vizag. Last week, they
successfully brought in cancellation order from Vijayawada Police
Commissioner Amit Garg. Now, they are objecting the movie title, as
it will show the coastal city in a bad taste.
However, Ram Gopal Varma is adamant about that and has said that
he would not change the title of the film. Meanwhile, the
protesters have also approached the Film Chamber to instruct the
filmmaker to change the title of the film.
