Baahubali 2 Leads To Caste War In Godavari Districts
Rajamahendravaram: Baahubali 2 , magnum opus, mania is running all over the globe with positive talk and record collections on day one. But the story is different in Telugu state, Andhra Pradesh. It led to clashes between two castes which have been trying to gain an upper hand in Godavari districts. The main reason for the present war is Government’s decision of giving permission for extra shows for Baahubali 2.
Chiranjeevi, Mega Star, a major force for Kapu community came back with a bang with his film Khaidi No 150 after a gap of 8 years. Chiranjeevi’s fans and Kapu leaders tried for benefit shows across AP, permission for which was denied by AP Government. Same scene repeated for Pawan’s flick Katamrayudu and Government faced anger from Kapu youth for cancelling extra shows of Jana Sena’s Chief Pawan Kalyan’s Katamarayudu.
For Baahubali 2, AP Government passed a special ‘GO’ to screen six shows per day which triggered tension in East and West Godavari districts.
