Dandupalya 2 has been amidst controversies ever since the film went on floors. Various issues have been clouding the film despite efforts from the makers to make it a smooth process. First it started with actress Sanjjjanaa Galrani being angered after she claimed that she was not being given the importance and Pooja Gandhi was being given the priority during the promotions of the film. The tussle went to a stage where Sanjjjanaa even did not attend the promotional activities for the film.
Sanjjanaa, who has payed a key role in the film, reportedly shed all her inhibitions and acted nude for a crucial sequence. The scene was deleted from the final copy when the regional censor board refused to pass the film. This deleted video clip and related nude pictures of Sanjjanaa are now allegedly going viral online. Reportedly, this nude sequence appears in Dandupalya 2 when she faces physical torture in prison.
Dandupalya 2 faced a lot of challenges after the actual gang, on who the film is based on, protested against the content in the film. The makers, however, changed the content later and the shooting begun for the film. The makers have, however, not made responded to the leakage of the clippings. Dandupalya is based on the gang from the outskirts of Bangalore who were known for their heinous acts and criminal activities, and to have created fear amongst common man.
Dandupalya 2 is now facing another major controversy ahead of its release in Telugu on July 26th, 2017. Titled Dandupalyam 2, the film is slated to release in the Telugu states.
