The recently released first look of NTR Junior in S S Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ has kickstarted a controversy. BJP leaders and a group of tribal leaders have been demanding to remove the visuals of NTR wearing a Muslim cap in the movie.
Adilabad MP Soyam Bapu Rao said that Adivasis were deeply hurt by this depiction of freedom fighter Komaram Bheem wearing a Muslim cap.
The BJP leader said they would not allow the screening of the movie if Rajamouli doesn’t yield to their request of removing the scene from the movie.
In a tweet to NTR Junior, Adivasi youth Pedore Sungu of Adilabad district said there was no ‘Muslim role’ in the history of Komaram Bheem. Sungu expressed his displeasure for showing Bheem as a Muslim.
