The Harish Shankar directorial was earlier titled as Valmiki, however the makers had to change the title of the film at the last minute. The film’s title was changed to Gaddalakonda Ganesh ahead of the release of the film. The members of the Boya community were offended after the makers of the film used the name of a great saint Valmiki as the film’s title in which the hero is portrayed in a negative avatar. The makers then changed the name to Gaddalakonda Ganesh. Although the film faced issues at the last minute, it managed to hit the screens as per the schedule (on September 20) and even opened to positive response.

As per a report in The Hans India, the state BJP president K Laxman and representatives of the Valmiki community submitted a representation to the regional CBFC board in Hyderabad, demanding a change in the title of Harish Shankar directorial. The association president Gopi Boya and other members also clarified they do not have any objection with the film. It was on the eve of its release an order was passed by High Court of Telangana State to makers to get the title changed. Fans of Harish Shankar and Varun Tej extended their support to the team of Gaddalakonda Ganesh, and the reactions of the movie buffs are enough to proof.

Fans are impressed with Varun Tej’s role as a gangster. Some of them have even called it as his career best performance. Pooja Hegde who played the character Sridevi was paired opposite the handsome hunk. Atharvaa Murali and Mrinalini Murali are also seen in key roles. Let’s take a look at the reviews shared by Twitterati.
