Rajini apologizes to Kannadigas
July 31, 2008

With just a few days to go for Kuselan's worldwide release, Karnataka Rakshana Vedike activists seem determined to block the release of Kuselan in Karnataka. Earlier it seemed as though the issue was resolved, with the Karnataka Film Chamber Commerce striking a compromise of screening at least ten prints of the movie in Bangalore.


Today it would seem this cannot be taken for granted. With this in mind, Rajinikanth has now issued an apology for his 'anti-Kannadiga statements", appealing to the people of Karnataka not to block the release of Kuselan there.

"This incident has taught me a lesson. I shall never commit such a mistake again. Please allow the release of Kuselan in Karnataka, urged Rajinikanth, speaking to Kannada channels. "The people who are opposing me are also children of Karnataka. They are doing it for their state. Please, please forget the past and whatever I have said. Allow me to release my film. I am ready to help Kannadigas also," the star added. Earlier he had even sent a letter of regret in Kannada but the activists wanted a public apology, which he has now given. But the question now is: how will his repeated apology be viewed in Tamil Nadu?

However, some sources say that Rajini did not offer an apology as such, but only explained his difficult situation, caught as he seems to be in the crossfire between Karnataka and Tamilnadu.

Meanwhile, all the tickets for Kuselan's Friday opening in Bangalore have been sold out.
