DYFI activists on Friday staged a dharna at RTC crossroads in protest against blacmarketing of tickets by cinema theatre owners in Hyderabad.

HYDERABAD: The latest Tollywood film, Business Man, which was released all over the state on Friday landed in a controversy with the Bajrang Dal lodging a police complaint that one of the songs in the film contained vulgar words and conveyed unacceptable meaning.

In his complaint to the Mahankali police, Dal city unit's representative Murali alleged that the song in question, Bad Boys..., was written with vulgar words and demanded action against the film's director, Puri Jagannath, for screening such a vulgar song for public viewing at cinema houses.

The action film is co-written and directed by Puri Jagannadh and produced by RR Venkat. It stars Mahesh Babu and Kajal Agarwal in the lead roles. The film has been dubbed into Tamil and Malayalam languages.

Police inspector S Ranga Rao confirmed that they received a complaint from the Bajrang Dal's representative. "We will take necessary action against the director after consulting legal experts,'' he said.
