Recently, the movie was highly condemned by BJP Dharmik Cell Convener Tumuluri Sri Krishna Chaitanya, Principal Secretary Rathakaram Ramu and others demanding a change in its title. They had alleged that using the name of the great warrior Bheeshma from Mahabharat as a title for the film may hurt the sentiments of Hindus. Few BJP leaders had warned the makers to change the title ahead of the release stating that Bheeshma was known for his pledge of celibacy and using his name for the title of a lover boy story is an insult.
