Hyderabad: A petition has been filed before the Telangana High Court seeking that it direct Censor Board to deny certification for Telugu feature film Kamma Rajyamlo Kadapa Reddlu and prohibit its release and exhibition in cinema theatres, over YouTube, Twitter or social media in Telangana.
City resident Indrasena Chowdary filed the petition stating that the movie has been made against Principles for Guidance in Certifying Films under Clause 5-B of the Cinematograph Act and it also violates Article 19 of the Indian Constitution. He submitted that controversial movie director Ram Gopal Varma is trying to be in limelight by making this movie blaming one caste and insulting some political leaders personally.
Mentioning statements of the director on the release of song titled Pappu Lanti Abbayi of the movie over social media like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, the petitioner contended that the lyrics are clearly defamatory towards TD leader Nara Chandrababu Naidu , Lokesh and Telugu Desam party.
“If the movie releases, there is every possibility that their followers will become angry, leading to public disorder in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh”, the petitioner said....
