SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ lands itself in legal trouble

Jeetesh Luhar



The anticipated ‘RRR’ has been postponed and is now in legal difficulties. A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was brought against the makers of the movie.

Alluri Sowmya, from Undrajavaram in Andhra Pradesh’s West Godavari district, filed a PIL in the High Court against the film’s writer and producers for altering the facts of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem in the film. The PIL opposes the romance between Alia Bhatt’s character Alluri, and Sita. Bhatt portrays a member of the police who works for the British before they take over the country. “How can a great patriot be shown to work for the colonialists in exchange for a few bucks?” the petition asked, reports Box Office Worldwide.

The petitioner is seeking an injunction to prevent the distribution of the film. Moreover, she added that “If the names are fictional, we have no objection.”

‘RRR’ is directed by SS Rajamouli and written by K.V. Vijayendra Prasad. The film is a fictionalised account of India’s most famous liberation fighters. The music is being composed by MM Keeravani, a musical genius. DVV Danayya’s production company, DVV Entertainments, is bankrolling the production.
