Supreme hero Sai Dharam Tej starrer movie Virupaksha is slated to release on April 21. The film has managed to create good interest among the audience and the trailer helped a lot in hyping the movie. The film’s team held a press meet in Hyderabad on Thursday. On this occasion, the makers have reacted to the ‘Virupaksha’ movie getting an A certificate.

Media persons questioned whether the certificate was given because of the romance scenes between the hero and the heroine. Sai Dharam Tej responded to this and made it clear that there are no vulgar scenes in the film. It’s a film that can be watched with the family. However, in the movie, there are some scenes using profanity and there is a lot of violence.

Even the director Karthik Dandu added, “Virupaksha was given an “A” certificate by the censor board, restricting the film to adults. This is neither because of the bad language nor the sexual violations in the content. It is purely because of the thrills and terror elements present in the film.”

The makers of Virupaksha have happily accepted the “A” certification, as they too know the content requires such restrictions. Virupaksha is going to be a thrilling ride where the mystery elements will be unfolded by the lead actor, as known from the trailer.

Sai Dharam Tej confirmed that the film will take place in the period of 1970 to 1990 and will be related to black magic. He also said that there will be some superstitions and supernatural forces in the film. So considering all these, the censor board might have certified Virupaksha with an “A”.

Virupaksha is penned by Sukumar and directed by Karthik Dandu. Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra produced the film. Samyuktha Menon is the female lead in the film. Ajaneesh Loknath composed the music.
