V Hanumantha Rao created a scene by tearing the lip-lock posters of 'Arjun Reddy'. This led to war of words between RGV & VH. They both ended up throwing open challenges to each other. Even before this controversy ended, The Congress Leader targeted the path-breaking film yet again.
Telangana IT Minister K Taraka Rama Rao declared Vijay Devarakonda is a rockstar after the screening of 'Arjun Reddy'. He lauded Director Sandeep Reddy for making a raw, intense, honest, original, bold, gutsy & risque flick.
While responding on KTR's word-of-praise for adult flick, V Hanumantha Rao questioned what message does the IT Minister intends to offer to the public. 'KTR heaped praises on 'Arjun Reddy' as Vijay Devarakonda is his relative. Youth get spoilt watching the Hero in the role of drug addict. Scenes showing a Girl getting pregnant before marriage are unacceptable. Hero treats the patient after consuming Alcohol. Doctors might get influenced in a bad way by watching such Movies. A ban should be imposed on it!,' he demanded.
