Hyderabad: The much anticipated film Duvvada Jagannadham (DJ) has got mired in controversy which doesn’t seem to abate now. The makers released a second track Gudilo Badilo Madilo Vodilo which became an instant hit with its peppy tune. But the lyrics stoked controversy as few lines were of religious hymn Rudra Sutra and the Brahmin community took objections.
In an interview to a television channel, a priest condemned the lyrics for using the Rudra stotra in appreciation of the actress. It sounds demeaining and hurts the sentiments of Hindu community, he added.
While asked about the issue, the filmmaker Harish Shankar, said, “I come from a Brahmin community and if the lines were demeaning in any sense I would have ensured to remove it. But the lines have been misinterpreted.” Well, we have to wait and watch how things unfold in few days.
The movie starts Stylish Star Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde and this is the first time the two have shared on-screen space. The movie will hit the screen on June 23.
