The row over Telugu movie Denikaina Ready is refusing to die down with activists of Brahmin organisations staging a protest here on Wednesday.
Demanding a ban on the movie starring Manchu Vishnu, protesters tried to march towards Raj Bhavan but were arrested. Raising slogans against Vishnu, they blocked traffic.
Some leaders of BJP, TDP and TRS also joined the protesters, who were demanding the arrest of Vishnu and his father, veteran actor Mohan Babu, for last week's attack on Brahmins.
They alleged that people who were protesting outside Mohan Babu's house on October 31 night were beaten up by his henchmen.
The organisations are seeking a ban on the movie for allegedly hurting the religious sentiments of Brahmins.
In another development, Telugu film producers' association also backed Mohan Babu. They found fault with the organisations attacking theatres, houses of filmmakers and other property.
Eminent producer D. Ramanaidu said it was for the censor board to take a decision when any group raises objections to certain scenes.
