Rajini earns the wrath of Tamil cinema
August 01, 2008

Superstar Rajinikanth's apology statement to the Kannada Film Association on a Kannada channel has ruffled a few feathers of his colleagues in Tamil Cinema. Sathyaraj and Sarathkumar have angrily reacted to the apology statement. When his reactions were sought by the Behindwoods correspondent, Sathyaraj alleged


Rajini of bringing disgrace to the entire Tamil community. He also said that if he were in Rajini's position, he would compensate for the financial losses that are likely to incur owing to the movie's non-release in Karnataka. "I wouldn't appeal for an apology for I couldn't see anything wrong in those statements,' an infuriated Sathyaraj further added suggesting that Rajini's statement was uncalled for.

Sarathkumar, on the other hand, criticized that Rajini has sacrificed the dignity of Tamil people by apologizing to the Kannadigas. He blamed Rajini for lacking principles and showing insensitivity towards Tamilian sentiments. Sarath mentioned that Rajini should have approached the Nadigar Sangam if he had any issues to be dealt with instead of issuing a public apology. He also questioned Rajini's integrity towards Tamilian's welfare opining that he did not find Rajini's speech to be provoking or hurting the sentiments of Kannada film industry.

Actor Radharavi also echoed the same thoughts and alleged that this was done to protect the likes of some crores worth of Kuselan's distribution rights across Karnataka.
