‘Brahmanula Ammayi and Nawabula Abbayi’ Triggers Storm


A forthcoming Telugu short film titled ‘Brahmana Ammayi and Nawabula Abbayi’ is said to be hurting the sentiments of people from Brahmin community. And like the title suggests, its a story about an inter-religious affair, which was earlier portrayed by eminent writers like Chalam.

And as the trailer of the short film got uploaded on YouTube and started trending in the Top 50, Brahmin community members complained that the title would encourage ‘Love Jihad’. They demanded that the government should ban the trailer of the film and also asked that an action should be taken on the director of the film, Farooq Roy.

Quite surprisingly, the delegation from Brahmin community met Telangana Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Regional Film Censor Board and also police DGP to take action on this film and its makers. But in fact, one look at the trailer shows that there is no such objectionable content inside, say netizens.

However, film experts feel that there were never objections for any Hindu-Muslim love stories like “Bombay” and “PK”, but however bringing one particular caste into the play is creating the unwanted disturbance. While Anirudh is playing the role of a Muslim boy, Simran Choudhary is seen as the Brahmin girl.
