Amid the high tension that’s been prevailing over the past few weeks over the release of Baahubali The Conclusion in Karnataka, the film’s actor Sathyaraj has at last apologized to all the Kannadigas for calling Kannadigas ‘dogs’ in his speech during the Cauvery River protests 9 years ago.
Sathyaraj, popular as Kattappa in Baahubali, said in a video message today that he is not against Karnataka or its people, further adding that he is a small part in Baahubali and that his comments should not affect the hard work of thousands of other artistes and technicians who are part of the Baahubali franchise, including Baahubali’s Kannada distributors.
Sathyaraj further vowed to continue his fight for the rights of Tamilians in Sri Lanka, Cauvery River issue and the farmers’ rights and also urged the Tamil people to understand why he had to apologize now.
It is well-known that several members of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike and other pro-Kannada groups have been demanding an apology from Sathyaraj and they didn’t budge even after the film’s director Rajamouli made an appeal yesterday.
