Finally Baahubali Actor Sathyaraj Released apology video for his comments against Kannadigas which he made nine years back during a protest organised by Nadigar Sangam. His apology comes a day after Baahubali’s director Rajamouli released a video statement appealing pro-Kannada organisations not to stall the film. Rajamouli had said that it was unfair to target a movie because of one individual’s personal opinion. Thus paving way for the trouble-free release of the movie Baahubali 2 in Karnataka.
Watch Sathyaraj’s video message in Tamil below:

“In the last nine years, I have acted in at least 30 movies including Baahubali, that have released in Karnataka. I have also been offered many Kannada films, which I couldn’t take up because of schedule issues,” Sathyaraj said
“People have watched that video from nine years ago on Youtube now, and they have been hurt by it. I apologise for the certain words I used for the people of Karnataka,” he said.
“I am a small worker in a huge film like Baahubali and my comments should not affect the film. I also appeal to the people of Tamil Nadu to understand,” I also have a duty to protect those Kannadiga distributors who have bought the rights for the release of the film,” he added.
Meanwhile, the pro-Kannada Organisations who were Stopping the release of the film have said that they will review Sathyaraj’s statement, and then take a decision based on whether they are satisfied with his apology.
