The movie also came under controversy recently for its depiction of Naxalism. A poster was released on ram Charan’s birthday in which both Chiranjeevi and Charan were seen donning naxal attire. This depiction has come under question from the Anti Terrorism Organisation. The organisation has questioned the intent of the films. Additionally, it has also requested the CBFC to not issue certification to these films in a detailed letter.
