The group has further alleged that in films their community members are portrayed as anti-social elements and children in their community face social stigma because of that. Not just that, the group has also requested the censor board to immediately remove Katika from the film. According to media reports, the members of the Arekatika Porata Samithi have filed a complaint at the Banjara Hills police station, claiming that they have been offended by a scene, where Kattappa says ‘Katika Cheekati’. The same report said the police officers are, however, yet to file a case based on their complaint. The group has claimed that Katika is a cast slur and has insulted their community. Members of a group have filed a police complaint against the film in Hyderabad for allegedly showing their community in a bad light and hurting their sentiments by allegedly using a caste slur. The film has created a history by ending the opening weekend with Rs 540 crore in its kitty.
