Ram Gopal Varma angers Pawan Kalyan fans
A poster that the filmmaker released has been creating controversy online
Controversial filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is back in the news, and how. The Sarkar director, who has been targeting Pawan Kalyan ever since the latter took his political plunge, released a poster from his upcoming film Kamma Rajyamlo Kadapa Reddlu that bears an uncanny similarity to the actor-turned-politician.
Announcing the trailer release date, RGV said:
A pic from KAMMA RAJYAMLO KADAPA REDDLU ..Trailer releasing dayafter 27 th with Diwali blessings at 9.36 Am .. Resemblence to any person is purely coincidental #KRKR pic.twitter.com/hGFVMkre2F— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) October 25, 2019
Soon after the filmmaker shared the poster on Twitter, outrage began pouring in from Pawan Kalyan fans, who claimed that their star has been depicted wrongly in RGV's film. They also warned that the theatres will be shutdown if RGV goes ahead without removing scenes that degrade their favourite actor.
Apart from the character that resembles Pawan Kalyan, the film also has a host of characters resembling politicians like Nara Lokesh, Chandrababu Naidu, and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
