Recently police officials have forced Kethireddy to stop his shooting and leave the NTR Ghat premises stating that director has not obtained any permission to do a shooting here. Post that, Kethireddy hurriedly did the Pooja ceremony and directed a ‘formal first shot’ and left the place along with this production unit.
Following that, the director received a severe backlash from the people of Nimmakuru Village. Nimmakuru Village is located in the Krishna district and is the hometown of Legendary actor and politician Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao. Kethireddy who has gone to the village to shoot key scenes for his NTR Biopic named ‘Lakshmi’s Veeragrandham’ faced severe criticism and backlash from the people of the village.
The Panchayat head of Nimmakuru Village did not allow Kethireddy to shoot for his film in the village. Kethireddy hoped to pan some key shots as a part of NTR’s initial days for the film. ‘We came to know that this director is making a stupid film in the name of directing the great NTR. We cannot tolerate this and will not allow him to do shooting in this village’, said the villagers in an anguished and angered tone.
Kethireddy along with his production is looking to plan the shoot in another location. Kethireddy wanted to release the film in January 2018 itself. But seeing the backlash he is receiving, and with no prior permission from Lakshmi Parvathi it looks like the release of ‘Lakshmi’s Veeragrandham’ may not be possible. But Kethireddy is firm that he would release the film at any cost.
