Hero-turned-director sits on dharna

Former hero Aditya Om has made his debut as a director with the film titled Friend Request, which has hit the screens today. Aditya Om made his debut as an actor back in 2002 with the blockbuster film Lahiri Lahiri Lahiri Lo. The actor slipped into starring in B grade flicks after his films failed severely at the box-office.

Friend Request, which hit the screens today in the two Telugu states, was apparently supposed to be released in 30 screens in the Nizam area. Unfortunately, the producers have decided to release the film in only three theaters after watching the output as they weren’t confident about the movie.

Aditya Om was outraged by the decision has sat on a dharna in front of the Film Chamber building in Hyderabad. He added that he demands justice from the Film Chamber and is unhappy with the distributor changing their decision without informing the director.
