One Dasari Ramu put the breaks on the successful run of the film, Bharat Ane Nenu, starring Mahesh Babu and directed by Koratala Siva. Dasari dramatically displayed his political party name as Navodaya and showed the party symbol to be the same as those used in the film. With a political backdrop, the film portrays the character of a chief minister as belonging to Navodayam Party with the same symbol as shown by the complainant. At a press meet in Somajiguda, Dasari questioned the film unit as to how they could use his party name and symbol without his permission. He threatened to slap legal notices.
