Titled ‘Adirindhi’, the Telugu version was originally supposed to hit screens last week but got delayed as it could not complete censor formalities. This had led to speculation of the delayed being linked to the controversial GST scene. However, CBFC chairperson Prasoon Joshi soon rubbished these claims and said the CBFC did not ask for any cuts.
“So far, the filmmakers had not received any communication about the Telugu certification, so how can they accuse us of delaying the release of their film? This is not done. The film certificate has been issued for the Telugu dubbed version without any cuts,” he had added.
