Two Telugu movies in Andhra Pradesh are facing the wrath of police in the Vijayanagaram district. The police in that region have filed cases against the exhibitors of Jhummandhi Nadham and Badmash for displaying “obscenities” in the posters of these movies.
The images in question are those of a kissing scene in Jhummandhi Nadham poster and a young boy urinating in the poster of Badmash. On the other hand, Jhummandhi Nadham starring Manchu Manoj, Lakshmi Prasanna and Mohan Babu in the lead roles has completed 50 days and the posters of the movie are still everywhere, weeks after its release. The producers of the movie have supposedly designed and printed the posters of the movie. The posters were required to get certification from the censor authorities before getting displayed.
Badmash is the directorial debut venture of Vandemataram Srinivas. He is launching Naga Siddhardha and Ekta as the main leads in this movie. Siddhardha plays a very rich spoiled son of a rich man, who is expelled from all the colleges in the city except one. The engineering college in which he studies is run by a fanatical moralist principal with a beautiful daughter.
Now the issue is, if the censor authorities have passed the posters then how come the police is targeting only the exhibitors, keeping the producers and censor board safe from the charges of disseminating obscenity?
