Many expected Aravinda Sametha, NTR's film which released today amidst huge expectations across the world will unite all Nandamuri fans and TDP supporters as it is the first film after the tragic demise of Nandamuri Harikrishna.
However much to the shock of all, Aravinda Sametha ticket controversy hit TDP in Andhra Pradesh. It is known that Andhra Pradesh government gave benefit shows screening in the theatres across the state and NTR fans decided to watch the film's first day first show.
However this gave bitter experience as theatre management of Sai Mahal theatre in Payakaraopeta denied tickets to few Nandamuri fans. Theatre manager Seetharam told Nandamuri Cultural Youth Association, Balakrishna Fans honorary president Chitakayala Rambabu, president Vishwanathula Srinu that he will not give them tickets to them and their friends as TDP MLA Anitha asked him not to do so as they are YSRCP supporters.
They turned furious and claimed that though they are YSRCP supporters , they are diehard fans of Nandamuri heroes and shouting slogans against the theatre management tore the flexies they erected spending thousands.
Police entered the scene and tried to calm the tempers and at that time theatre manager Seetharam claimed that he did not use TDP MLA Anitah's name and told that TDP Mandal president Pedireddy Chittbabu ordered him not to give tickets to Balakrishna fans members as they are the supporters of YSRCP.
