Pawan Kalyan's latest movie Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu has received positive talks from viewers, but it is facing the wrath of a few groups like the Telangana activists, activists of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and YSR Congress, who have objected certain characters in the film and also some dialogues and scenes, claiming that they are intended to disrespect the Telangana agitation and the leaders like YS Rajasekhar Reddy, Chandrababu Naidu and KCR's son KTR.
They have equated the Chief Minister's role played by Nazar to YSR, the opposition leader character's name Jawahar Naidu to Chandrababu Naidu and the dialogue 'Dushta Rajakeeyalu chesevariki bolli (Soriasis) vanti vyadhulu'. The villain's son (Ranababu Naidu character) launching Telugu Talli agitation and calling for extradition of non-Telugus from the state was equated to 'Non-Andhraites' from Telangana.
Alleging that Puri Jagannath had announced even before the release of the film that the movie is based on politics and would not reflect current political situation, they said that Puri Jagannath and Pawan Kalyan have intentionally made the film. They created a ruckus near Aradhana theatre in Tarnaka of Hyderabad, near the OU, and also in various other parts of Telangana like Warangal. They stopped the screening of the morning show and destroyed the cut-outs and flexis near the theatres.
Some of them had brought a few reels of the film out and set them afire and demanded a ban on the film in Telangana region. Director Puri Jagannath, producer DVV Danaya and some of the film distributors are trying to pacify the agitators by announcing to edit the scenes, which are objectionable.
However, this is not the first time a Pawan Kalyan's film is facing the Telangana agitators ire. Earlier, his film Komuram Puli faced the Telangana agitator's wrath and they were cooled down with the removal of 'Komuram' from the title of the movie.
