Trivikram Insulted Brahmins?

Lately, it appears that the Brahmin community is becoming the target for politicians and cine folks.

On one side, KCR insulted Brahmins with his loose talk and while the heat is settling down, here is another one, in the form of a satire in the film ‘Teen Maar’. Incidentally, the lines were penned by Trivikram Srinivas who is a Brahmin himself.
 
One of the Ali’s dialogues on the lead pair goes “Idhi Pappu Adhi Sambar” and it is heard that Brahmins are getting irritated on this. Sources say many are calling Trivikram on this and asking him why he is insulting his own community and people. However, Trivikram has reportedly given his view on that.
 
A friend of Trivikram revealed the writer/director’s words “Why are you doing this controversy? Every Telugu person eats Pappu, Tamils eat Sambar. It was not my intention at all to insult any community in particular. I don’t know why only Brahmins are branded with ‘dal’. Don’t the other communities eat? In ‘Teenmaar’, the girl is Telugu, the boy’s name is Tamil, that’s why the analogy of Pappu, Sambar. Also, the name Meera Shastri (character name of Trisha) doesn’t mean she has to be Brahmin. A non-Brahmin friend of mine named himself as L B Shastri out of respect for the freedom fighter and 2nd PM of our nation Lal Bahadur Sastri. Obviously, his daughter will get same surname. This narrow mindedness should be got rid of.”
 
Well…that’s curtains dropped on this issue folks!!
