Director Parasuram Petla who directed Mahesh Babu starrer Sarkaru Vaari Paata released earlier this month, has apologised to the devotees of Narasimha Swamy. The apology came after the devotees were reportedly offended by a dialogue in the film. The said dialogue, based on the avatar of the Hindu God Vishnu, sparked controversy in one of the face-off scenes featuring Mahesh Babu and Samuthirakani.
Mahesh Babu-starrer Sarkaru Vaari Paata director Parasuram Petla apologises to devotees of Naramisha Swamy for a dialogue in the film
Sarkaru Vaari Paata also stars Keerthy Suresh in the lead and performed well at the box office. Some scenes from the film received backlash. Samuthirakani plays the antagonist in the film. He said a dialogue in which he compared himself to a Hindu God. The director has now apologised for the dialogue.
“Do you have any idea why Lord Narasimha is covered in sandalwood paste? Because the average person can't stand his 'Ugra Rupam' (extreme form). You can't stand my wildest version, either," said the villain in the film.
Reportedly, when Parasuram was asked about the controversial dialogue in the film, the director said that he was a big devotee of Narasimha Swamy and had visited the temple before the film's release. He apologised for hurting the sentiments of people and said that was never the intention to hurt anyone.
Jointly produced by Mythri Movie Makers, 14 Reels Plus Entertainment and G Mahesh Babu Entertainment, Sarkaru Vaari Paata is a film that highlights loan scams and faulty banking systems.
