Charan happy with Negative Publicity

Posted : September 3, 2013 at 6:21 am IST by ManaTelugu

Ram Charan’s maiden Bollywood project ‘Zanjeer’ has been surrounded by controversies ever since it was launched. Firstly, the copy rights issue pointed out by script writers Javed Akhtar and Salim Khan demanding a monetary compensations of Rs 6 crore from the producers of ‘Zanjeer 2.0’. Later, the petition filed by Businessman Prince Tuli demanding the removal of scenes featuring his bike in the song ‘Mumbai Ka Hero’. Lastly, the threat calls from the Seemandhra and Telangana agitators over stalling the release of the film on September 6th.

Some how, Charan is able to look at the positive side of all of these controversies. “Either its positive or negative, the important aspect here is that our film did manage to stay in the headlines,” says the actor.

While the Mumbai High Court on Monday dismissed the plea of writers Javed Akhtar and Salim Khan to stall the release, petition filed by Prince Tuli will be coming for hearing on this Wednesday. On the other hand, Separatists and Integrationists haven’t be able to take a clear stand on ‘Toofan’ release until now. Tollywood is hopeful of a positive statement from JACs by Tomorrow. If the agitators disrupt the screening of ‘Toofan’, the release of other biggies will be postponed further and this situation would only multiply the losses for the people associated with these projects.
