Although Varma had allegedly received several threats, he didn’t deter and finished the shooting. The ‘Kamma Kapu’ song from the movie, which was already released, however turned controversial with the lyrics looking potentially demeaning.
After a few members of those respective castes lodged a petition against the film I the High Court, Varma and film’s producer Dasari Kiran Kumar have released a joint statement saying they had decided to remove the ‘Kamma Kapu’ song. After the voluntary decision of the makers ahead of the hearing, the High Court on Friday wrote off the case.
The film’s audio launch event is scheduled to be held in Vijayawada on 3rd December. The film’s theatrical release date will be announced soon.
