SS Rajamouli Emotional Appeal : The Director Of India’s Most Awaited War Oriented Film “Baahubali 2” SS Rajamouli Made an emotional appeal to Kannadigas has not received support by many people in Karnataka, who insist that Baahubali 2 director persuade actor Sathyaraj to offer an apology to Kannadigas.
As the protests against the release of Baahubali: The Conclusion reached a fever pitch, the film’s director SS Rajamouli released a video appeal on Facebook to all Kannadigas to allow the film to be released.
Actor Sathyaraj, who plays Katappa Role in the film had allegedly made a controversial speech – which had anti-Kannada statements – during the Cauvery row some time back hasn’t gone down well with many. The protesters including Kannada Rakshana Vedike had declared on Wednesday that they’d stall the Bahubali press meet scheduled for today. It has also been reported that they will also hold a rally against the film’s much-awaited release.“His comments, made some years ago, have pained many of you. But we do not have any kind of connection with those comments. They are only Sathyaraj’s personal, individual opinion,” Rajamouli said.
“The producer and I want to clarify on the issue.The comments must have pained some of you but his commnets will not have connection with the movie. Those were (his) personal comments and were made some years ago,” the director said in a video message on his official Twitter page.
He said the team was unaware of the actor’s remarks till it saw a video on a social media site.Rajamouli also pointed out that many of Sathyaraj’s films have been released since then, including the 2015 film “Baahubali”.
“The way you accepted and appreciated ‘Baahubali Part I’, I request you to do the same for ‘Part II’… Sathyaraj is neither the director nor the producer of this movie. He is one of many artists associated with this film.”If you stall the release of the film, it may not affect him (Sathyaraj) that much. But it is not right to show your anger on this film for the comments made by him,” he said.
SS Rajamouli’s emotional appeal went viral on the social media within no time with thousands of people sharing it on Twitter and Facebook. While many neitizens requested Kannadigas to support Baahubali, some non-Kannadigas expressed anger against the agitators, which led to heated argument between Kannadigas and non-Kannadigas.
