Right from the start, the film Bejawada Rowdeelu, starring Naga Chaitanya and produced by Ram Gopal Varma, has been courting controversies. There were sporadic disturbances during the shooting of the film in Vijayawada. Civil society groups demanded a change in the title of the film.
Gowtham Reddy, an advocate filed a petition in the Andhra Pradesh High Court seeking a directive to the film makers to change the title of the film. The HC has asked the Censor Board to submit a report to the court within a week.
Sometime ago, RGV in a TV interview strongly defended the films title saying that every town and city has its own quota of rowdy elements. The title Bezawada Rowdeelu does not mean that all citizens of Vijayawada are rowdies.
Whatever be the decision of the high court, RGV is once again at the center of a controversy.
