NOTA Movie Controversy:
Just days before the release of NOTA, the movie is courting needless, but in a way, expected controversy. The political tinges were always going to hurt some sentiments.
Producer Kethireddy Jagadeesh Reddy has expressed concerns regarding the content of the movie and title NOTA. It is indirectly taking sides at a political party, and that would have effects on the elections that are going to happen soon in Telangana, he felt. To this effect, he met state Election commission Head Rajat Kumar and handed over a written plea. We have to see what action is taken.
NOTA is actually said to be based on a famous Tamil novel Vettatam. The characters in the movie are not directly based on real people, but are a mixture of real political people and contain some real situations fictionalized for narrative purposes. The Anand Shankar directorial NOTA starring Vijay Deverakonda releases worldwide in Telugu and Tamil on October 5th.
