In his petition to the poll panel, Devibabu Choudhary, a worker of ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP), sought orders to stop the controversial movie of well-known filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma which is slated for release on March 22.
He complained that the film has portrayed TDP President and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu in negative light and this could influence the voters and demanded that the film's release be stopped till April 11.
Elections to the 175-member State Assembly and all 25 Lok Sabha seats are scheduled to be held on April 11 - in the first phase of the seven-phase Lok Sabha elections.
"Lakshmi's NTR" is about NTR's second marriage to Lakshmi Parvathi, TDP's landslide victory in 1994 elections and the revolt led by his son-in-law Chandrababu Naidu in August 1995 and NTR's death a few months later.
