Year 2011's Nandi Awardee director N Shankar has opined that 'Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu' portrays women in a bad light.
He has cited the habits/character of the three main women characters of the film. Tamannaah, who plays a camera-woman, has the habit of drinking beer. Gundakka, the woman politician, is shown to have the habit of chewing gutka. Scarlett Wilson, who plays the role of a news channel editor, wields a gun and shoots the hero in a particular scene.
Saying that there have been many great women like Mother Theresa and Medha Patkar, N Shankar said that characters should be inspired by such women's lives and should be depicted in our cinema.
