Renowned Tollywood director Raghavendra Rao has been hit with a significant legal challenge by the Telangana High Court. Here's a more structured and clear presentation of the situation:Raghavendra Rao received court notice following the land allotment by the government and his non acknowledgement of the earlier notice.

Here are the latest developments in the case pertaining to Raghavendra Rao.

Notice from Telangana High Court: The Telangana High Court has recently re-issued notices to veteran Tollywood director K. Raghavendra Rao, his brother K. Krishnamohan Rao, and their family. This notice pertains to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed in 2012.

Land Allotment in 1984: The legal dispute centers around the allocation of a two-acre plot of land in Survey No. 403/1 of Banjara Hills, back in 1984. The intended purpose of this land was the construction of a recording and re-recording theatre.

Change in Land Use: In 2003, the Telangana government granted permission for the construction of a mini-theatre, a film training institute, and a conference hall on this land. Allegedly, the family developed a commercial complex on the same property, contrary to its original designated purpose.

2012 PIL Filing: In response to this change in land use, a PIL was filed in 2012. Balakishan, a resident of Medak, filed this Public Interest Litigation, contending that the commercial usage of the 2-acre land (RK Cineplex) violated established rules and regulations.

Court Proceedings: The court had previously issued notices related to this petition, but since their receipt wasn't officially confirmed, new notices were re-issued. The court has postponed the hearing to January 18.

Hearing by a Two-Judge Bench: Chief Justice Alok Arathe and Justice NV Shravan Kumar, comprising a two-judge bench, are overseeing the petition.

Defendants Served Notices: Notably, the defendants in this case include Raghavendra Rao and his family members - Krishnamohan Rao, Chakraborty, Vijayalakshmi, Akhilandeshwari, and Lalasa Devi.
