The police had denied entry to the director who was confined for more than seven hours at the airport before he returned to Hyderabad.

YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) Chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had tweeted in support of RGV and reacted strongly to the incident. Condemning the episode in strong terms, he asked Chandrababu Naidu if this was his definition of democracy. He questioned Chandrababu as to what mistake had the director done and condemned the way the police were being used by the state government, indicating the state of affairs in AP.
