Komaram Bheems grandson opposes RRR poster of Jr NTR

The controversy over depicting Jr NTR's character in 'Roudram Ranam Rudhiram' as a Muslim continues. Days after the release of the film's first look, Sone Rao, the grandson of Komaram Bheem, has found fault with SS Rajamouli's "distortion" of history.

"Had the director and writers consulted us for research information about our hero, we would have helped them out. Bheem fought for the land, water and other resources of tribals. Representing him as a minority community member is nothing but a distortion," Sone Rao is heard saying in a video doing rounds on the Internet.

This comes amid reports that there are no historical records to say that Bheem ever looked like a Muslim, even in disguise. "By misrepresenting a hero we all worship as a god, the film has offended us Adivasis. We request Rajamouli to withdraw the Muslim get-up," he added. "If he doesn't withdraw the look, we will surely protest against the movie," the grandson said.
