Maverick director Ram Gopal Varma who is known to target celebrities and important occasions to gain media attention did so once again for his upcoming controversial project, Lakshmi's NTR. He selected Balakrishna's prestigious biopic on his father, NTR audio celebration event, to launch is much publicised song Vennu Poto at 4 PM on Dec 21.
The moment Vennu Potu song was released, it went viral on social media creating a rage. Unlike other filmmakers who launch indirect attacks, RGV stunned all by launching a direct attack on AP CM Chandra Babu Naidu for backstabbing his father in law, the then CM of AP, NTR to come back to power aided by NTR's own daughters and sons. Much to the surprise of all, he used the real pictures of NTR, Chandrababu Naidu, Lakshmi Parvathi, Daggubati, Balakrishna and Harikrishna etc without showing any fear as it is sure to generate huge controversy.
The song penned by Sira Sri and composed by Kalyani Malik had powerful lyrics bringing back the sour memories of the Chandra Babu's infamous coup. The film is slated for a grand release in the month of Feb in 2019 and is produced by YSRC leader Rakesh Reddy.
