Reportedly director Ram Gopal Varma aka RGV has been put through a lot of flak by the Chandrababu led TDP government about the release of his controversial film 'Lakshmi's NTR.' Meanwhile after a lot of drama, the film was set to be released on May Day after Andhra Pradesh High Court lifted the stay. Furthermore Ram Gopal Varma who was supposed to conduct a press meet in Vijayawada as part of the film promotion, was detained at Gannavaram Airport and sent back to Hyderabad amidst high drama.
Meanwhile the police had denied entry to the director who was confined for more than seven hours at the airport before he returned to Hyderabad. YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) Chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had tweeted in support of RGV and reacted strongly to the incident. Further condemning the episode in strong terms, he asked Chandrababu Naidu if this was his definition of democracy.
Moreover RGV appreciated and thanked YSRCP YS Jagan Mohan Reddy for condemning the Government's action in Vijayawada. Accordingly the tweet reads; "He really appreciate YSRCP President Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy condemning @ncbn ‘s arrogance ridden government action in Vijayawada of arresting me on #Lakshmis NTR matter."
