Director Parasuram apologises for hurting Hindu sentiments

Director Parasuram who stayed away from controversies is however, facing the wrath of women audience and Hindu believers with his latest movie Sarkaruvari Paata. The director was blamed for an indecent bedroom scene with Mahesh Babu and Keerthi Suresh and he justified it.

However, a dialogue in the movie related to the Lord Narasimha Swamy triggered anger among the Hindu devotees. This based on Narasimha Swamy has sparked controversy in one of the face-off scenes starring Mahesh Babu and actor Samuthirakani.

The villain in the film Samuthirakani, mouths a dialogue in which he compares himself to a Hindu God.

“Do you have any idea why Lord Narasimha is covered in sandalwood paste? Because the average person can’t stand his ‘Ugra Rupam’ (extreme form). You can’t stand my wildest version, either,” says the villain during a confrontation with the hero.

The comparison of an antagonist to a sacred God has hurt the sentiments of devotees, and hence the controversy. Anticipating the impending danger, Parasuram had apologized the Hindu believers for the mistake.
