Ongole Gitta, starring Ram Pothineni and Kriti Kharbanda in the lead has received 'A' certificate from the Regional Censor Board. The producers, who were expecting to get a U/A certificate, were shocked to know about the Censors' decision. Sources from the Board say that the movie has got this certificate due to Prakash Raj's nude appearance.
Ongole Gitta is a romantic action movie with all commercial elements and Ram is appearing in a mass role. The makers of the film were trying to get a U/A certificate. But the censor disagreed their demand as it has a few objectionable scenes, which include Prakash Raj's nude appearance. Although the scene has been blurred, the Censor Board insisted on deleting the scene to get a U/A certificate.
Hero Ram, who has been shocked by the Censors' certification of Ongole Gitta, says that there are no objectionable scenes in the movie. On his Twitter, the actor writes, "#ONGOLEGITHA ki A certificate a?" ani SHOCK avuthunna vaalu andharu Cinema Chusaka kuda Adhey antaaru ;p ibbandhi pattey scenes emi levu :) (sic)"
Ongole Gitta is produced by BVSN Prasad under the banner of Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra. The movie, which has GV Prakash Kumar's music, Mani Sharma's background score and A Venkatesh's cinematography, is scheduled to release on February 1. Ram has pinned lots of hope it. However, it remains to be seen how the viewers will receive the film.
