Earlier, Ram Gopal Varma was detained by Vijayawada Police and was sent back to Hyderabad without providing any valid reason
Vijayawada: A month after he was prevented from entering the city to promote his upcoming film 'Lakshmi's NTR,' noted film-maker Ram Gopal Varma on Sunday (May 26) arrived in the city and said the "truth coming out is inevitable".
"The movie is set to release on May 31. The incidents in the movie are 25-year-old, but the characters are still in politics and among people. Truth can be suppressed, but it's coming out is inevitable," Varma told reporters in Vijayawada.
"The movie talks about a person who is seeking votes using NTR's photos and what he did to him. The person has been punished even before the release of the film," he said in an apparent reference to Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party (TDP) facing a rout in the Assembly as well as Lok Sabha polls in Andhra Pradesh.
'Lakshmi's NTR' is a portrayal of the events that led to TDP founder and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister NT Rama Rao's 'dethroning' in an intra-party coup in August 1995 by his son-in-law N Chandrababu Naidu, who later became the chief minister of the state.
Earlier, announcing his arrival in the city, Varma had tweeted, "Am landing in Vijayawada at 1 pm on spice jet from Mumbai .. I hope @ysjagan police will treat us with better respect than the @ncbn Police (sic)."
On April 28, Varma was detained by the city police and sent back to Hyderabad without giving any valid reason.
