Bandi has questioned the film’s representation of freedom fighter, Komaram Bheem. Another BJP leader, Adilabad MP Soyam Bapu, has also targeted the filmmaker.
A row had erupted after Komaram Bheem, played by actor Jr NTR in the film, was shown wearing a skull cap. Last week, a first look video of the character was unveiled. Towards the end of it, Bheem is shown wearing a skull cap.
November 1 marked the 80th death anniversary of Komaram Bheem. As per the report, the tribal leader is greatly venerated in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and parts of Maharashtra and Chattisgarh.
