As we all know, the makers of Allu Arjun starrer ‘Duvvada Jagannadham’ found themselves in a soup when the Brahmin community objected to the lyrics of a song from the film. Now, producer Dil Raju has edited the song and ensured that it does not hurt the sentiments of any community. Speaking to a leading daily, he said that the offensive lines had been removed.
“Yes, we are going to remove the words Namakam and Chamakam from the song,There are a few Sanskrit words in the song. However, the Brahmin association objected and I decided to remove them, It’s a good film and has shaped up well,” he said.
Confirming the same, the president of the All India Brahmins Association said that the offensive words had indeed been chopped off.
“I spoke to director Harish Shankar and he agreed to remove the two words from the song,” he added.
Interestingly, earlier while talking on the controversy, filmmaker Harish had stressed that they never really wanted to offend any community.
“I’m from a Brahmin family and I know all the verses of vedas. I never would purposefully or unknowingly let down my community. I have been in the film industry for more than 15 years now and people who have worked with me know what kind of a person I’m,” he said.
For the uninitiated, DJ is touted to be a romantic comedy. Besides ‘Bunny’, it also features Allu Arjun in the lead. Its trailer was released a few hours ago and created a buzz amongst fans. If all goes as planned, it will hit screens later this month.
