removal of the objectionable scenes and demanded action against
director and producer of the film, he stated.

The SHRC had issued notices to the Censor Board and adjourned the case
of for January 22, Mr. Rao said. Use of 'niluvu bottu' in 'chari…'
song was not only insulting the sentiments and customs of the

objections raised before release of the film.

the existence of the community, Mr. Rajeswar Rao explained.

He demanded that the film makers stop sale of CDs and cassettes of the
song and withdraw 'chari…' even in TV advertisements.
