Telugu Movie Review Denikaina Ready

The row over Telugu movie 'Denikaina Ready' is refusing to die down with activists of Brahmin organisations staging a protest here Wednesday.

Demanding a ban on the movie 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, who were demanding the arrest of Vishnu and his father, veteran actor Mohan Babu, for last week's attack on Brahmins.

They alleged that people who were protesting outside Mohan Babu's house Oct 31 night were beaten up by his henchmen.

The organisations are seeking a ban on the movie for allegedly hurting the religious sentiments of Brahmins.

The Brahmin groups have already lodged a complaint with state human rights commission, which directed the police commissioner to submit a report on the incidents. Vishnu also filed a complaint with the human rights commission that some people attacked his house.

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.

In another development, Telugu film producers' association also backed Mohan Babu. They found fault with the organisations attacking theatres, houses of filmmakers and other property.

Eminent producer D. Ramanaidu said it was for the censor board to take a decision when any group raises objections to certain scenes.
