People often crave for attention, and do many crazy things. Normally one can seek attention - either by making a controversial statement or target films by making silly allegations on the makers, cast, storyline etc. The second one is easy and often bring people the attention they seek.
It is a common scenario these days when we see some section of people making noise on social media and TV channels seeking a ban on few films claiming that they hurt the religious, political sentiments. Wondering why all this? Grab eyeballs, yes! you read it right These people are in limelight for a short span and soon fade away once makers clarify.
Directorial genius SS Rajamouli's RRR is the latest film to face the wrath of these attention seekers. Recently after makers unveiled the first look poster of Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt as Sita, wife of Seetha Ramaraju (played by Ram Charan), a section of people targeted the film and demanded a ban. The reason stated was Alia has acted in glam roles in her previous films. Not only that they also questioned makers on casting her as Sita in the film. But forgot that Alia is playing the character named Sita and not the Goddess Sita.
Some even raised the nepotism issue (which became a burning topic ever since the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput), and demanded makers to cast another actress who will do justice to the role. Well, put aside nepotism which is already an outdated issue, its doubtful that these attention seekers will gain anything with these charges. Talking about Alia playing glam roles in her early films, every actor has the right to play any role of their choice.
Well its not the first time, even previously RRR has faced ban threats when makers unveiled the introduction teaser of Jr NTR as Komaram Bheem. The teaser showcased a glimpse of NTR with a skull cap, and this is said to have hurt the sentiments of many Hindus who solicit a clarification from the makers. Well, the issue was subsided after a few weeks.
