Hyderabad : Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma reported activist Kolikapudi Sreenivas Rao online on Tuesday, accusing him of demanding a Rs. 1 crore bounty on his head.

The director tagged the Andhra Pradesh Police in a post on “X,” asking them to handle this as his formal complaint.

Cleverly aided by TV 5 anchor Samba, who together allowed him to repeat the contract killing on me three times, was what Varma claimed Sreenivas Rao was doing.

Varma announced in a different post that he was formally filing a police report against Sreenivasa Rao, Sambasiva Rao, the TV5 anchor, and B. R. Naidu, the owner.

The filmmaker alleged that Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and its supremo N. Chandrababu Naidu’s representatives are publicly on supportive TV channels offering monetary contracts to cut people’s heads.

“If he is not condemned and kicked out publicly by them, contract killings will be recognised as official policy of TDP,” he said.

Sreenivasa Rao, a leader of Amaravati Joint Action Committee (JAC), offered the reward while lashing out at Varma for his upcoming movie “Vyooham”, which is said to be in support of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Varma had earlier slammed Chandrababu Naidu, TDP MLC Nara Lokesh and Jana Sena Party president and actor Pawan Kalyan for a protest outside his office in Hyderabad on “Vyooham”.

Few protesters burnt an effigy outside Varma’s office in Hyderabad on Monday.

According to reports, the movie is about the circumstances surrounding the death of former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh (before it was divided), Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy.

The TDP has petitioned the Telangana High Court to challenge the certificate allowing “Vyooham” to be released in theaters. They claim that attempts have been made to damage Naidu’s reputation in the contentious film. December 29 is when the movie is supposed to be released.
