Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu faces activists’ wrath

Telugu political satire Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu has ended up inviting the wrath of Telangana activists despite the fact that the makers have agreed to edit out objectionable scenes

Students of the Osmania University (OU) joint action committee (JAC), activists of the Telugu Desam and YSR Congress are up in arms over the content of the movie.The activists created a ruckus on Friday near Aradhana theatre in Tarnaka of Hyderabad, near the OU, and also in various other parts of Telangana like Warangal, over certain characters in the film and some dialogues and scenes. They claim the characters and scenes are intended to disrespect the Telangana agitation and leaders like YS Rajasekhar Reddy, N Chandrababu Naidu and KCR’s son KTR.

A screening of the movie’s morning show was disrupted and activists destroyed the cutouts and flexes near the theatres. Some of them had brought a few reels of the film out and set them afire and demanded a ban on the film in Telangana region, said a source. Director Puri Jagannath, producer DVV Danaiah, and some of the film distributors are now trying to pacify the agitators by announcing they would edit the scenes which are being considered objectionable. “The film had a great opening Thursday and screening across all theatres was carried out smoothly. All started this (Friday) morning when student activists started shouting slogans and attacking theatres where the film was being screened,” said a Hyderabad-based distributor. “Following our meeting with the producer, we also agreed to edit a few scenes and re-release the film”, he added.

The activists equated the chief minister’s role played by Nazar to YSR, and the dialogue that “Dushta Rajakeeyalu chesevariki bolli vanti vyadhulu” (politicians who indulge in bad deeds end up having diseases like leucoderma) and the opposition leader character’s name Jawahar Naidu to Chandrababu Naidu.
