The ban on smoking and use of animals in the films had become a big headache for the producers, says Dr D Ramanaidu. Several film personalities met the National Animal Welfare Council chairman RM Karg, who visited Hyderabad at Film Chamber recently. Union minister Dasari Narayana Rao says, 'Several films remained pending with the Censor Board for clearance due to some scenes involving the animals. There were no proper guidelines on the showcasing of animals in films. At the same time, the instructions of the animal welfare council were not clear. I will soon meet the respective ministers in this regard.
Responding in a rage, R Narayanamurthy says, 'First the non-vegetarian people should stop eating. It is very common among people to beat animals. You just can't term it as cruelty to animals.' Responding to the complaints, the National Animal Welfare Council chairman RM Karg says, 'We are implementing the Mumbai High Court judgment. Our aim is not to trouble producers. We don't object to the use of animals in routine manner. However, we don't allow cruelty to animals on the screen. We are not showing any bias against the producers.' Nagarjuna, Allu Aravind, K Raghavendra Rao, C Kalyan, KS Ramarao, KC Sekhar Babu, Nagendrababu and others participated.
