Tollywood gave life to many talented comedians and directors who primarily made films in the comedy genre. Despite reviews and cinephiles giving the films a big nod, there are instances where the film unit, director especially falls into communal controversies facing allegations that they insulted certain community.
This is observed to be more with the Brahmin community. One can get back to NTR’s ‘Adhurs’ movie which was stuck in degrading and insult the Brahmin community. Things hit the same with Nithin’s recent release ‘Rang De’ that touched the sentiments of some Brahmins on the wrong side by implying that they are meat-eaters.
Vennela Kishore who was showed as a person from Brahmin Community shown not wearing sacred thread in a shirtless scene and was seen eating meat. Which was opposed by many cinephiles stating that it offended many people from the same community. While the unit us yet to react on this issue, Venky Atluri, the director of ‘Rang De’ seems to be stuck in a fix.
