Rajkotupdates.news : rrr filed pil in telangana high court before release: RRR is an upcoming Indian period action film written and directed by S. S. Rajamouli. The film is produced by D. V. V. Danayya under his banner DVV Entertainments. The movie stars Ram Charan and Jr. NTR in the lead roles, while Alia Bhatt and Olivia Morris play the female leads. The film is set to release on October 13, 2023, in multiple languages, including Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam.
However, before the release of the film, a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed in the Telangana High Court by RRR, an organization based in Hyderabad, on March 18, 2023. The PIL sought to stay the release of the movie, citing objections to the portrayal of certain historical figures in the film.
According to the PIL, the film portrays the characters of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem in an inaccurate and insensitive manner. The petitioners alleged that the movie distorted historical facts and portrayed the two freedom fighters as glorified characters, which they claim is an insult to the memory of these icons of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
Alluri Sitarama Raju was a revolutionary leader who fought against the British rule in Andhra Pradesh during the 1920s, while Komaram Bheem was a tribal leader who led an armed struggle against the Nizam of Hyderabad in the 1940s. Both are revered figures in the region, and the petitioners argued that any portrayal of them in an inaccurate or insensitive manner would be unacceptable.
The petitioners also alleged that the filmmakers did not consult any historians or experts while making the film and that the portrayal of the two freedom fighters was based solely on the director’s imagination.
The Telangana High Court issued a notice to the filmmakers, asking them to respond to the PIL. The court also ordered a stay on the release of the movie until the matter is resolved. The filmmakers have not yet responded to the notice.
The controversy around the portrayal of historical figures in movies is not new in India. Several films in the past have faced objections and bans for allegedly distorting historical facts. The RRR PIL is another example of how movies can become a lightning rod for sensitive issues.
In conclusion, the RRR PIL filed in the Telangana High Court has put the release of the movie in limbo. It remains to be seen how the court will rule on the matter and whether the filmmakers will be able to convince the court that their portrayal of historical figures in the movie is accurate and sensitive.
