Short film makers face religious ire for hurting sentiments
The makers of a soon-to-be-released digital film Bhrammanula Ammai Navabula Abbai have come under fire for allegedly hurting the sentiments of Hindus
A police complaint was registered against the makers of a soon-to-be-released digital film Bhrammanula Ammai Navabula Abbai for allegedly hurting the sentiments of Brahmins. Concerns have been raised by Vishal Kumar, a Master in Communication & Journalism student for deliberately targeting his community with this short film.
“On Tuesday, I watched the teaser of a short film Bhrammanula Ammai Navabula Abbai on Facebook. The digital film, written and directed by Faarooq Roy and produced by Pedda Fareed, Chinna Fareed and Azagar Aali Shaik seems to be made with an intention to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus. I have also realised that the footage has violated the guidelines of the social media and it can trigger tension and a communal rift in the coming days. Hence, we demand the cops to take necessary action against the makers of this short film,” said Vishal.
Members of the Telangana Brahmana Seva Samakhya said, “The short film is promoting Love Jihad and has an objectionable title. We demand the makers take down the video from social media, YouTube and stall the release. We have submitted a representation to the Director General of Police (DGP) M Mahender Reddy seeking appropriate action.”
Not so long ago, a Telugu film director Dasari Sairam was arrested by the Telangana police for allegedly making a film titled Devuda in which some scenes show whiskey being poured over a Shiva Lingam in a temple even as a cigarette burns like an incense stick.
