Ram Gopal Varma has all his hopes on his next film Lakshmi's NTR which is announced for March 22nd release. The ace director at any cost wished to release the film before the elections. But with the latest announcement of elections, the censor board rejected watching Lakshmi's NTR and asked RGV to announce a new date post elections. This came as a shock for Ram Gopal Varma and his team as they wished to create a sensation with Lakshmi's NTR by releasing the film before polls.

"CBFC in trying to delay the film for reasons of favoring someone is strangely relying on a model code of conduct meant for political parties and contesting candidates. CBFC is assuming the jurisdiction of Election Commission which is not vested in it and is withholding certification of #LakshmiNTR and constitutionally it cannot partake the role of Election Commission" said RGV.

"Election Commission derives its powers under Article 324 of the Constitution which empowers it to regulate the Election process the conduct of contesting candidates and Political parties and it has no jurisdiction on the exhibition of films. The CBFC has no authority to postpone watching the film on the ground of model code for conduct even before viewing, which amounts to a blatant violation of fundamental right of Freedom of Expression guaranteed under Article 19 of the Constitution of India" posted Ram Gopal Varma.
