CBFC under fire
While the Brahmin organisations continue to protest against Denikaina Ready, the Andhra Pradesh Film Chamber of Commerce and the Telugu Film Producers' Council on Wednesday laid the blame at the doorstep of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for all the controversy fuelled by the film's content.
"The censor board should be more responsible when clearing a film," said noted actor AV Subramanyam, popularly known as AVS. "The censor board has become a political rehabilitation centre," he commented.
Demanding a ban on the film starring Manchu Vishnu, protesters tried to march towards Raj Bhavan but were arrested. Raising slogans against Vishnu, they blocked traffic. Some leaders of BJP, TDP and TRS also joined the protesters and demaned the arrest of Vishnu and his father, veteran actor Mohan Babu, for last week's attack on Brahmins.
The protest near Raj Bhavan took place even as a group of Brahmin priests from Chennai expressed solidarity with Mohan Babu. They told reporters in Hyderabad that it was unfair to make allegations against a person who had utmost respect for Brahmins.
