Srikanth's upcoming movie Devaraya is one of the most-awaited Telugu movies of 2012 and its videos, posters and music have created a lot of curiosity among the film goers, who are desperately waiting to watch it. But the film has landed in a big controversy just a few days before its release. An organisation named Kapu Nadu has alleged that it shows the much-revered King Sri Krishnadevaraya in a very bad light.
Kapu Nadu says that King Sri Krishnadevaraya is one of the highly regarded Kings in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. But the movie Devaraya portrays him as an item dancer. The organisation has now urged the makers of this much-anticipated movie to remove all those sleazy songs and other scenes from the film that make a mockery of the King.
The President of the organization Kapu Nadu, Narayana Swamy Royal says that in Devaraya, Sri Krishnadevaraya is shown in a bad way. The movie features the King enjoying an item dance in a romantic mood, which is quite insulting. He urged the makers to remove such insulting sequences. He warned them that they would burn the reels, if the makers do not remove them.
The film Devaraya, which is directed by Nani Krishna, is based on the life and times of Sri Krishnadevaraya. The movie features Srikanth, Meenakshi Dixit and Vidisha. Srikanth is playing dual roles like Dorababu and Sri Krishnadevaraya. It is scheduled to release this month. But the makers are yet to respond to the statements issued by Kapu Nadu.
