According to the latest update, one of the TDP activists has approached the Election Commission of India. Devi Babu Chowdhary, the TDP activist in his complaint has alleged that this Lakshmi’s NTR is likely to affect the state election. He requested to stop the release of RGV aka Ram Gopal Varma’s Lakshmi’s NTR in cinema halls. CEC after taking the complaint copy has forwarded the matter to State election commission.
Devi Babu Chowdhary has alleged that both the director Ram Gopal Varma and the producer Rakesh Reddy have targeted TDP (Telugu Desam Party) and its Chief to damage their reputation ahead of the election.
Ram Gopal Varma aka RGV also confirmed the same via his post on Twitter, “Those from TDP party complaining to Election commission to STOP release of #LakshmisNTR because it might show the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister @ncbn in bad light should realise that no one can in hell can STOP TRUTH.”
Few weeks ago, Ram Gopal Verma has taken digs at current Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu through the movie when he released “VenuPotu” song from Lakshmi’s NTR. A slew of complaints from Telugu Desam Party workers followed, and it ended with Ram Gopal Varma filing complaints against the complainants.
According to Ram Gopal Varma, Lakshmi’s NTR is an honest portrayal of NTR’s life.
Recently Ram Gopal Varma has openly used the word backstabber to address Chandrababu Naidu in the promo of Lakshmi’s NTR. Now we have to wait and see how the Election Commission will respond to its complaint.
