Ram Gopal Varma seeks police protection
Maverick director Ram Gopal Varma is on the verge of making another controversial film titled “Rakhta Charita” which is based on the life and times of Andhra Paradesh politician Paritala Ravindra who had been assassinated allegedly by Maddelacheruvu Suri.
RGV cast Vivek Oberoi as Paritala Ravindra and Tamil star Surya as Maddelacheruvu Suri. The shooting of the film will begin on September 27. The necessary police permission for shooting has been obtained.
However, in view of the tension still prevailing between the followers of Ravi and Suri, and since the shooting has to take place in actual locations in Anantapur district, RGV sought police protection for the entire unit.
Anantapur SP MK Singh is said to be considering the issue. Meanwhile, a delegation of CPI, AIYF and AISF called on the SP on Tuesday and requested him not to permit filming of the controversial subject.
