Allu Sirish’s debut movie ‘Gouravam’ which is slated for release on April 19th is in trouble now. According to sources, the all powerful Gounder community in Tamil Nadu asked the state government to ban the movie as the ‘Gouravam’ story line is based on honour killing which may instigate communal disharmony. The community submitted written petition to the Kongunadu Munnetra Kazhagam representing the Gounder community and the neglected Kongu region of Tamil Nadu which will in turn forward it to the state Government. In the wake of Kamal Hassan’s Vishwaroopam ban, movie analysts fear that the Government may also take this issue seriously.
The movie is being directed by Radha Mohan and produced by Prakash Raj. Yami Gautam is staring opposite Sirish. This film is simultaneously being made in Telugu and Tamil. Sirish’s father Allu Aravind will be releasing the movie in Andhra Pradesh. Story was written by B.V.S.Raju. Soundtrack was composed by Thaman.
