Netizens  have responded angrily to the  hero hogging the limelight in a sensitive heroine-oriented film.A  director who has worked with Pavan Kalyan laughingly said,  “Sir you can call  the film Pink, Blue Or  Red. But when  it is Pavan Kalyan in  the lead  audiences will come to see  only him. That’s why the Telugu remake  is called Vakeel Babu, not  Teen Deviyan Aur Ek  VakeelBabu.”Looks  like patriarchal rules  of  stardom still rule the South Indian film industry.
