The makers of S.S Rajamouli's directorial RRR announced that they will be releasing the first look of Jr. NTR from the film. The actor plays the role of Bheem. The official handle of RRR finally released the first intense and spine chilling look of Jr. NTR as Bheem on October 22. However, this did not go down well with BJP leader Bandi Sanjay. He was upset with the representation of tribal leader Komaram Bheem, who fought against the Nizam of Hyderabad.
Now, Sanjay has indirectly threatened Rajamouli. While addressing a campaign, Bandi Sanjay threatened Rajamouli with dire consequences if he failed to remove the controversial scene. ’’For sensation, Rajmouli has put a cap on Komaram Bheem. We will accept it? Never,” Bandi Sanjay said during his speech.
No official statement has yet been released by Rajamouli yet.
