Karnataka: Around 9 years ago the Tamil actor Sathya Raj had made comments on the Cauvery water dispute between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. His speech was all about Tamilians rights in the Cauvery river water and nothing much offensive. But now that video has become a trouble for the release of Baahubali 2: The conclusion in Karnataka.
Many associations in Karnataka protested against the release of the film as it portrays Sathya Raj in a key role called as ‘ Katappa ‘. The role played by Sathya Raj has equal importance with Baahubali as Katappa. Many associations in Karnataka got onto roads protesting and demanded that Sathya Raj should apologize for his comments made on Kannadigas.
At first, though Sathya Raj denied apologizing, he was forced to apologize to the people of Karnataka for the comments made by him as the lives of many like producers, director, distributors, and exhibitors are at stake. Baahubali 2 has done a business of Rs. 40 Crores which the highest amount Sandalwood has ever witnessed and Baahubali: The beginning was also a major hit in Karnataka. Since the director S S Rajamouli and Sathya Raj have apologised for the line for Baahubali 2 release has been cleared. This part is going to reveal the question ‘Why Katappa Killed Baahuabli’. A questioned about which even the Honorable Prime Minister pondered. And it will hit the silver screen on April 29th this year.
