Despite his clarification, Tiger KCR was publicized as an anti-Andhra film. Responding those, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted this morning, "The film #TIGERKCR is not going to be against Andhra People. It will be against only a few Andhra leaders who created humiliating situations for Telangana people KCR loved all Telugu people and his war was only with those Andhra Leaders who were backstabbing Telangana people."
