However, the court took a dim view of Ashvathaman's contention and noted: "if the petitioner was really concerned about the public and society then he would have tackled issues such as untouchability and women's safety".

It said if you "don't like the film, don't watch it". It is also said that the movie did not receive a censor certificate even after deleting the "objectionable" GST dialogue from the Telugu version.
