Chennai : Actor Sathyaraj on Friday expressed the deepest regret over comments he made against Kannadigas nine years ago during the Cauvery row and appealed for the smooth release of “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” in Karnataka.
Over the last week, Pro-Kannada organisations have been protesting the release of “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” in Karnataka over Sathyaraj’s allegedly inflammatory comments.
“Nine years ago, I voiced my opinion during the Cauvery row. People in Karnataka burnt my effigies for my strong comments. I have been told that my comments back then had hurt the sentiments of Kannadigas. I deeply regret to have made such comments,” Sathyaraj, reacting to the current state of affairs in Karnataka, said in a video statement.
He went on to add that he is not against Kannadigas..–IANS
