Vijayawada, the business capital of Andhra Pradesh is rather infamous for its rivalry based on Kamma and Kapu caste.
There were attacks and counter attacks of each other group. Kapu leader Vangaveeti Mohana Ranga’s cold blooded murder is classic example.
Vijayawada is also known for its leaders resorting to goondaism. Ram Gopal Varma’s next film Bejawada Rowdeelu is based on the faction feuds of Vijayawada.
Varma who is in Vijayawada to attend alumni is staying there to get more information first hand. On Saturday, Varma met Congress leader Devineni Nehru. There was war of words between Nehru and Vallabhaneni Vamsi Mohan of TDP in the recent past.
Varma discussed with Nehru and his brother Baji Prasad. Varma could not meet Vangaveeti Ratna Kumari as she was not in town. Varma is likely to meet son of Chalasani Venkata Rao.
Sensing exposure of their anti-social activities, some leaders hailing from Vijayawada severely criticized Ram Gopal Varma when he announced his intention to make a film on goondaism of Vijayawada.
Is the subject enough for one movie or will RGV make the story in parts like Rakta Charitra?
