When you thought that the whole nation is gung-ho after the rambunctious response to Jr. NTR’s first look as Komaram Bheem in Director SS Rajamouli’s RRR, then suppose once more. Apparently, the Adilabad tribal group is up in arms over the actor being depicted as a Muslin, together with his character sporting an Islamic skullcap being the key bone of competition. Komaram Bheem is considered a hero to the Adilabad tribals, and so they imagine that his depiction is an “insult” to their hero who led an rebellion in opposition to the final Nizam. Subsequently, they’ve threated to file a case beneath the SC/ST Atrocities Act if sure scenes aren’t deleted with quick impact.
“Komaram Bheem fought in opposition to the Nizam and his Razakar military. He took up arms in opposition to Nizam troopers till his final breath. Why has Rajamouli proven Komaram Bheem sporting a Muslim cranium cap? This has harm the emotions of hundreds of adivasis. Such blatant falsehood within the title of historical past. If he desires to make a film, let him present the stomach buttons of ladies. Why insult our God? If Rajamouli fails to take away such portrayal of Komaram Bheem, we are going to dig his grave,” warned the aadivasis in a press release to Telugu 360.
”For us, Komaram Bheem is our deity. We even pray to him and observe Aswayuja Powrnami to commemorate his life. Portraying Komaram Bheem as a Muslim is an affront to his household and the whole Gond tribe. Rajamouli is spreading falsehood. He has not visited any of the villages in Adilabad, didn’t converse to the aadivasis earlier than making the film. Rajamouli, you take away the scene, or you’ll face our wrath,” additional warned the tribals.
We marvel how SS Rajamouli and the workforce of RRR will reply to this?
