“Leave Baahubali alone” requests Rajamouli
Baahubali which had completed it’s post production works is all set for release this 28th. But earlier we had reported many Kannada parties in the state coming up with protests and ready to organize bandh on the release day. The bandh would be called off only if Sathyaraj, who plays Kattappa apologizes to the public on the comment made against Karnataka on the Kaveri river water dispute.
Now,the director himself has come up with a video tweet requesting the people in Karnataka. He requests them not to hurt his cinema which is much awaited by people just because of a comment made by an actor earlier or so.
It was a year ago Sathyaraj had made the comment that had insulted the Kannada people. The remark was made when both the states were having a bad time fighting over Kaveri river for the resources obtained from it.The Vattalpaksha party have planned to organize a protest from Town Hall to Freedom Park the release day and ban the release. Many others from various parties have also uplifted their decision and are planning to be a part of the movement.
“Sathyaraj is not the maker or producer of the movie, he is just an actor in the movie. He has nothing to lose if the movie is not released in Karnataka. It is terrible that you attack a movie on the basis of comment made by an actor in that movie. I had discussed the issue with Sathyaraj and I am not the one to give out further details. Don’t drag in cinema and destroy it with such unethical issues” he said in his Twitter video.
Sathyaraj, who was seen in a pivotal character in the first part is expected to portray a vital character with the same importance in Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. The organizers had recently warned the theaters and multiplexes to ban the shows on the release day. It is also reported that people would be protesting in front of Baahubali-showing theaters.
