On receiving flak from noted journalist-writer Ravi Belagere for factual errors in recently released Bheema Theeradalli, Duniya Vijay visited the Bheema banks to meet the family of Chandappa Harijana - the real life character played by the actor in the movie – and conveyed that they have not shown them in bad light.
After meeting the family, Vijay said, “They are innocent people and I was moved by their kind gesture. I was not there to promote my film but to see their living condition and to tell them that we have not portrayed Chandappa Harijana as a murderer rather a hero.”
He further added, “Ravi Belagere, who claimed to have helped them, has not done his part after using them for his personal gain. However, I have decided to help them in my own way.”
Meanwhile, Bheema Theeradalli, which also features Praneetha, Srinivasamurthy, Lokesh, Suchendra Prasad and others, is doing good business at the Box Office. Despite facing a lot of hurdles, the film has managed to cross Rs 3 crore mark.
