HYDERABAD: Ram Charan Tej-Tamanna starrer ‘Racha’, which is yet to hit silver screen has landed in a controversy over obscene song picturisation in the film.

Jaatiya Arundathi Mahila Shakti has complained to Banjara Hills police alleging that in one of songs there were obscene dance sequences in front of statues of Gautam Buddha.

Demanding immediate action and removal of song, the womens’ organisation sent a mail to Banjara Hills inspector M Sudarshan on Sunday.

Arundathi, President of Jaatiya Arundathi Mahila Shakti stated in her complaint that a remix song ‘Vaana Vaana Velluvaaye’’ was shot with obscene scenes of dancers in front of Gautam Buddha’s statue.”It will send a bad message to the audience and such obscenity is against our culture.

The director, producer and choreographer were involved in humiliating Buddha in shooting such obscene scenes in the song,’’ she alleged in the petition.

She demanded that director remove the song from the film.

She also complained to home minister P Sabita Indra Reddy, Minister D K Aruna, AP State Human Rights Commission among others.

“I have spoken to ACP Banjara Hills, Shanker Reddy and he promised to look into the issue.

I met Sabita Indra Reddy and she also promised me that she would look into the issue and take action,’’ Arundathi said.

The ‘Vana Vana Velluvaye’ song, from the movie ‘Gang Leader’ has been reshot in Racha.

The yesteryear song had become very popular in 90s and was a big hit among the audience.

In Racha, the director shot the song in various scenes with Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan Tej and Tamanna.

The shooting took place at Annapoorna studios in the city.

Meanwhile, M Sudharshan, Inspector, Banjara Hills said that they only received a complaint online and did not receive any written complaint.

The police have not registered any case against film director, producer and choreographer
