We already reported that the hurdles are increasing day by day for most awaited film “Baahubali 2- The Conclusion” Kannada release. The pro-kannada activities warned on yesterday evening by announcing Bengaluru Bandh on “Baahubali 2” release date (April 28th), to protest the remarks of Sathyaraj, who plays the key character of Katappa in the much anticipated film.
Now, Baahubali team are in appeal mode, few minutes ago director SS Rajamouli posted a video to all Kannadigas on his twitter page, tweeting as “An appeal to all Kannada friends”.
Rajamouli appeal is completely in Kannada language, he initiated his statement saying that “I don’t know Kannada, I am not fluent in the language, if I pounce anything wrong please excuse me”.
He stated, “Sathyaraj sir is not the producer or director of the film. He is one among the many artists who have worked in the film. If this movie doesn’t release as planned in Karnataka, he has nothing to lose. It’s unfair to target the film because of some comments he had made,”
He added, “I have already discussed the situation with Sathyaraj sir. I don’t have the authority or the energy to talk more on this issue. I request that our film doesn’t get dragged into this controversy,”
Finally he concluded saying, “People shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to watch the film due to Sathyaraj’s comments. He made comments on nine years ago, in mean time his many films including Baahubali-1 also released but no one protested at the time of release. I request all Kannada people to own Baahubali 2 has their film how they did for Baahubali 1”.
Rajamouli’s sensible message to Kannada people attracted all and going viral on social media.
