As expected, power star Pavan Kalyan-starrer Teen Maar is going to face troubles in the Telangana region.
The Telangana students joint action committee has threatened to boycott the film in Telangana as the title was an indirect insult to the Telangana culture. According to a JAC leader, Teen Maar symbolizes Telangana folk culture, especially that of Dalits. It is a typical Telangana dappu culture used in folk festivals, he said.
The JAC leaders burnt the posters of Teen Maar film and announced that they would not allow the film to be released, unless they removed the title. There would be no screening of the film in Telangana theatres, they said.
Pavan Kalyans earlier film Komuram Puli, also landed in a controversy as it was opposed by Adivasis on the pretext that it amounted to insulting legendary tribal hero Komuram Bheem, who was killed fighting with the Nizam forces. Finally, Pavan had to drop the word Komuram from the title on the day of release.
