However, now after nearly two weeks of the announcement the filmmaker has landed in legal trouble. Pranav's family has approached the court stating that Ram Gopal Varma's film Murder could affect Pranay's murder. In response to Pranay's father Balaswamy's petition, the Nalgonda Special SC/ST court has ordered Miryalaguda police to file a case against the filmmaker. 

Following this, Ram Gopal Varma took to twitter and in a series of tweets defended himself. Sharing the poster of the film, he wrote, "With regard to media speculations on the case filed on my film MURDER ,I once again want to reiterate that my film is based and inspired from a true incident and it is not the truth ..Also there’s no mention of anyone’s caste in the film."
