Vishnu Manchu, Hansika starrer Dhenikaina Ready ran into big trouble couple of days ago after several Brahmin organisations staged a protest against the film for depicting their community in a negative manner in the film. A series of protests were staged across the state and some people even came forward to donate Rs.1,116 each to Mohan Babu. A member of the community said, “Mohan Babu has been losing a lot of money of late. Since he’s resorting to silly tactics to make money by portraying us in a negative manner, we have decided to donate Rs.1,116 to him.” The bone of contention is that few scenes where Brahmins are shown eating non-vegetarian food and also performing religious acts just for the sake of money. Responding to the protest, Mohan Babu claimed that perhaps the protestors had come to ask for donations and it’s not a big deal. His statements further irked the Brahmin community and they approached the Malakajgiri court over the issue. In turn, the court has ordered the police to file a case against Mohan Babu, Nageshwara Reddy, Vishnu and Brahmanandam for making objectionable remarks against a community.
Meanwhile, Vishnu Manchu doesn’t seem to be in a mood to apologise. “To my buddies everywhere, DKR doesn’t have any scenes disrespecting the respectful Bhramins or any1. Those who have seen it wud know it.V know all this drama is being created by one lady or one man. We shall expose them v soon and let the legal system deal wit such culprits.Meanwhile lets not believe rumours floating around.in Kerala there r no protests then y only couple of protests in AP? U b the best judge! (sic),” he posted on Twitter. He has been touring across theatres in Nellore, Kadapa and Tirupathi for the past few days to interact with the audience. Dhenikaina Ready has become the biggest hit in his career so far, within a week of its release. G Nageshwara Reddy had directed the film. Gopi Mohan and Kona Venkat had written the script. Chakri and Yuvan Shankar Raja composed the music.
