Vijay's Theri, which released today in Tamil, was supposed to release in Telugu on 15 April as Policeodu. However, a case on the title of the film has led to a last-minute hassle for the release. Though there is no change in the release date, the title of the film has been altered to Police.
The police association of the Telugu states has filed a complaint on Dil Raju as they felt the title of the film is insulting and disrespectful towards them. Hurt by it, they demanded for a change of the title along with an apology.
The state president of the police association, Mr. Y. Gopi Reddy and the city President Mr. N. Shankar Reddy alleged that the makers have no respect for the profession.
Reacting promptly to the demands of police association, Dil Raju has renamed the title of Policeodu to Police. All the promotional material related to the film is also now being reproduced, while the release is just a few hours away.
'It is not only a quick decision by Dil Raju, but also a brave one', says the industry sources. Police association presidents too have expressed their joy and wished the team of Police all the best for the release, by withdrawing their complaint.
