He alleged that the actor was trying to get cheap publicity for his movies by raking up controversies, hurting the religious sentiments of people and demanded that police take appropriate action against him. "How can we allow disturbing public tranquility by those who use the bogey of freedom of expression (through cinema)," he asked. On April 8, VHP had sought a ban on the film, with its city organiser Satyamurthy petitioning the Police Commissioner, claiming that the incarnations of Lord Vishnu has been criticised in the movie. The movie is scheduled for release on May 1. PTI
