Film makers of Nayak starring Ram Charan, Kajal and Amala Paul landed in trouble when YSRCP leader and former MLA of Parawada Gandi Babji deciding to slap cases on them. Babji earlier protested on the day of film’s release after knowing that the villain played by Rahul Dev is named as Gandipet Babji. He warned film makers and director VV.Vinayak to change the name or else he would protest and even stop the screening of the film.
Everyone thought that the issue was settled when Vinayak in a press meet apologised to the MLA promising to change the same. However Babji allege that Vinayak did not fulfill his promise and so now decided to lodge a complaint against Vinayak in Pendurti Police Station. He later in a press meet revealed that his political opponent Ganta Srinivasa Rao and Union Minister Chiranjeevi were behind all this to sully his image in public and tarnish him politically.
