Anantapur Collector had made it clear that Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Legend can not be banned. According to the guidelines of Election Commissions, films of those who are contesting elections will be banned only from the telecast in Doordarshan. EC can not impose restrictions on their screening in private channels or film theaters. And in the case of Legend, Election Commission already cleared the film even before the release. So there is no possibility of imposing ban on the film.
It is known that YSR Congress had submitted a requisition letter to Anantapur Collector to ban Balakrishna’s Legend movie stating that it is in favour of Telugu Desam Party and there are several dialogues in the film supporting the party. So, they requested to ban the movie till the elections are complete as Balakrishna is also contesting this elections.
