Notably, the film Lakshmi’s NTR was not released in Andhra Pradesh as the state court had ordered a stay on the film till 3 April 2019. Following the court’s order, Verma had alleged a political agenda behind the move.
The Supreme Court of India on Monday refused to hear an urgent plea seeking a stay on the release of Lakshmi’s NTR. The plea was dismissed by the bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.
Lakshmi’s NRT featuring P Vijay Kumar, Yagna Shetty, Sritej and Aningi Rajasekhar in the pivotal role has been leaked online by the pirated website Tamilrockers.
According to reports, the director has projected AP chief minister as the backstabber who staged a coup to dethrone NTR from the CM post. This could be one of the reasons why the ruling party, TDP (Telugu Desam Party), headed by N Chandrababu Naidu didn’t want the film to release ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections as it might malign his image.
