Through the post shared, Tharun Bhascker, known for directing the films Pelli Choopulu and Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi, was referring to tropes present in many mainstream Telugu films. His view did not go down well with many Tollywood lovers and they started abusing the filmmaker and his team across social media platforms. The filmmaker immediately decided to take action against online trolls and filed complaint against them. In his latest post he mentioned, “For the past few days, a post that we had put up regarding films, in general, was distorted out of proportion on social media and was used to "troll" me and my team. In response to that, we had approached Cyber Crime Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) and made two phone calls to two twitter IDs: namely Anudeep and Krishna Teja Chowdare.”
