Film-maker Ram Gopal Varma and producer Natti Karuna have been booked for selling enmity between teams and beneath numerous provisions of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Act in reference to their upcoming film, Murder, on the Miryalaguda Town-I police station in Telangana on Saturday.
The instances have been filed after P. Balaswamy, father of Dalit youth Perumalla Pranay Kumar, sufferer of a inter-caste marriage killing in September 2018, complained to the SC/ST particular courtroom.
“The film will severely affect the ongoing trial of my son’s murder case,” Mr. Balaswamy submitted.
Mr. Varma, on June 21, posted photos of Pranay and Amruthavarshini, and T. Maruthi Rao alongside, on his Twitter web page and introduced the launch of the proposed movie poster.
The similar day, he launched the poster and wrote: “This is going to be a heart wrenching story based on Amrutha and Maruthi Rao saga of the DANGERS of a father LOVING a daughter too much..Launching the poster of a SAD FATHER’S film on HAPPY FATHER’S DAY”
According to the complainant’s lawyer D. Narasimha, “The film will create prejudice among people while the trial is in progress.”
“Objections are also that the film indicates that there was no caste issue. The film-makers did not take any consent from the family, and the offensive content arising out of the whole episode is re-victimising Pranay’s family, which amounts to violations under the SC/ST Act,” he mentioned.
Mr. Narasimha added that the household wished the movie to be stalled.
Tirunagaru Maruthi Rao, prime accused in the homicide conspiracy of Pranay, was discovered lifeless at Arvya Vaishya Bhavan in Hyderabad on March 8.
