Popular Tamil-Telugu  star-actor Vishal Krishna’s  new film Ayogya which is  a remake of  the Telugu hit Temper has  been controversial from  the  moment  its  first poster  showing the leading man as a cop with a  beer bottle in his hand, made its appearance.

 Tamil politicians were quick to jump at  the “gross violation of Khaki conduct.”

 

But Vishal  remained unfazed as he shot through  a series  of dangerous action scenes over the months, each bolder than what we’ve seen Jr NTR do  in the original film, Temper and  Ranveer Singh did  in  the recent Hindi  remake, Simmba.

And now the fast-paced, slick and  suave trailer is  not without  controversy. When submitted  for censor certification  the trailer was pulled up for a dialogue condemning  the current law and  order situation in  India. Says  Vishal, “We were asked  to  remove a dialogue. We’ve removed  the dialogue for  the theatrical  versions  of  the trailer. The dialogue is very  much there in the digital version  of  the video.”

Vishal feels films that question the Establishment and the status quo must be  made  for  change and progress to happen in society.

“Ayogya not only  examines  the  glaring loopholes in  the legal system  it also  takes up the  issue  of justice for  rape victims. I am not saying all my films will have a  socio-political  message. But I find it  difficult now to use  cinema only to provide  timepass entertainment,” says the Pandem Kodi star.
