Who stalled censor certificate for KRKR?

Who stalled censor certificate for KRKR?

The much-talked about political satire – Kamma Rajyamlo Kadapa Reddlu – made by maverick film maker Ram Gopal Varma, which was supposed to be released on Friday last, was denied censor certificate by Central Board of Film Certification in Hyderabad.

Apparently, the censor board authorities raised a serious objection to the controversial content in the film, as it has several characters which resemble Andhra politicians including chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, TDP president Nara Chandrababu Naidu, his son Nara Lokesh, Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan, evangelist-politician KA Paul and other senior political leaders.

It is learnt the censor board members felt the film would trigger political unrest in the state, which is already volatile with the allegations of attacks and counter-attacks between the ruling and the opposition parties and caste conflicts.

They did not relent even after RGV proposed to change the title of the film to “Amma Rajyamlo Kadapa Biddalu.” Since the film already generated a lot of curiosity among the audiences, RGV decided to go for an appeal before the review committee.

Sources, however, said there was more to the denial of censor certificate by officials than what meets the eye.

Apparently, a Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Andhra Pradesh belonging to a particular community targeted in the film had brought a lot of pressure on the censor board authorities and managed to see that it was denied the certificate.

It is a different matter that the review committee might finally give the certificate, but it would definitely order several cuts in the film, sources said.
