HYDERABAD: Congress veteran V Hanumantha Rao, who always finds new ways to compete with the younger generation of politicos in hitting the headlines, seems to have transformed himself into a ‘film critic,’ for now.He is busy addressing media conferences and taking part in TV debates to pick holes in Tollywood’s latest flick, Arjun Reddy, in which upcoming actor Vijay Devarakonda plays the lead role.
After grabbing the attention of media and film personalities by tearing the lip-lock posters of the movie advertised on RTC buses, Rao shifted his attack at IT minister KT Rama Rao for expressing admiration for the film. A day after KTR heaped praises, by tweeting, “Raw. Intense. Honest. Original. Bold. Gutsy. Risqué #ArjunReddy Kudos to Sandeep Reddy & Pranay Vijay Devarakonda you’re a Rockstar,” Hanumantha Rao on Tuesday wanted to know what sort of message KTR was sending the youth by encouraging such movies.
The senior politico alleged that KTR had praised the film’s hero Vijay Deverakonda only because Vijay is KTR’s relative. Hanumantha Rao said that he lodged a complaint with the Film Censor Board demanding ban on the film.
