The shooting of the film ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ was blocked by Muslim Youth in the town of Bidar. A tense atmosphere was created around the location with the Muslim Youth fiercely opposing the use of Hindu idols in the Muslim praying area in the Bahmani Sultan Castle. Muslims agitated in front of the residence of Bidar district officer for the removal of Hindu idols.
Being a historical film with a huge casting, the sets for this movie have been set up in Bahmani castle. The protestors are demanding to file a complaint against movie director Surender Reddy and Kannada actor Kichcha Sudeep. Even though the archaeological department gave permission, with the protest, the police removed the idols from the shooting location.
