The Ambedkar Kranti Sene has protested against the screening of Dandupalya at the Anupama theatre in Bangalore. However, there was no problem with the screening, which went off pretty smoothly.
Dandupalya is a film based on the dreaded gangsters of Dandupalya and the film has been in the eye of controversy right from the start. The Sena activists claimed that these kinds of films create bad impact on the audience and films based on gangsters must not be made at all. The activists have decided take legal action against the screening of the film.
Meanwhile, a court has rejected a petition filed by the residents of Dandupalya to change the title of the film as it shows the village and its residents in a bad light. But the court has rejected the petition saying that it is a mere name and does not portray the attitude of the villagers
