Title controversyEdit

The community members felt that the film-maker has criticized their community. Thus Korma community members had complained against the director Om Prakash Rao. The community members have asked for an apology from the director. However the director dismissed all allegations terming that the film has nothing to do with the community as such. Later,the title was changed to Chandappa due to the protests the previous name generated.[5]


Abhiman Roy has composed two songs for the film.
