Applying typical “commercial formula” of the industry and keeping everybody happy, producer and director of “Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu” (CGTR) deleted the “objectionable” scenes for screening in the Telangana region. However, the uncut movie is being shown across Andhra and Rayalaseema.

The violent protests by Telangana agitators against the movie for its anti-Telangana scenes generated interest in the Andhra region, said industry sources, who were happy to get more revenues.

“The director and producer cut the scenes as suggested by the government. The theatre owners deleted the scenes in Hyderabad on their own and started screening the movie. The movie will be screened across Telangana from Monday,” a producer of Telangana Film Chamber told Express. “There are no cuts in the movie in Andhra and Rayalaseema. The controversy will generate much interest and pull more crowds,” he added.

Political Leaders Continue War of Words

Though the controversy over the movie is now over, politicians did not stop warring over the film. Senior Congress leader K Keshava Rao called Andhra film personalities ‘mafia’. “A couple of scenes or songs against Telangana will not dilute the movement,” he thundered. BJP senior leader Bandaru Dattatreya demanded scrapping of present Censor Board, as it failed to prevent the anti-Telangana movie. In Vijayawada, Congress MLAs Malladi Vishnu and others demanded that the CGTR be screened without any cuts.
