Kichcha Sudeep pens a long note to condemn the act of a slipper thrown at Darshan
A few days ago while promoting the movie Kranti in Karnataka, a person hurled a slipper at the Kannada actor Darshan. Many speculated that this was a retaliation for the actor’s misogynistic remarks on lady luck while the other actors in the industry voiced their opinion to condemn such acts of violence. Superstar Shiva Rajkumar also shared a video yesterday to ask the people to not do such things and today, Kichcha Sudeep also shared a long note on Twitter to voice his opinion.
In the note, the actor wrote, ”Our land, language and culture is all about love & respect. Every problem has a solution, and every solution has multiple ways of being solved. Each and every individual deserves to be treated with dignity, and any problem can be solved in a manner that is plesant and calm.
The video I saw was very disturbing. There were many others and the leading lady of the film standing there as well who were just a part of the event and had nothing to do with the rage that was prevailing at that time. Humiliating them publicly brings about questions as to are we kannadigas known for these unjustified reactions. Is this kind of an outburst even an option.”
“As far as Darshan is concerned, I agree there may have been a situation that isn’t so pleasant between him and Puneeth fans. But is this the reaction Puneeth himself would have appreciated and supported? An answer to this is something that probably each of his beloved fans know.
One silly act from one indivual in the crowd shouldn’t damage the whole system called love, dignity and respect that Puneeth fans are known for. Darshan has contributed a lot to this industry and our language. The differences between us isn’t something that will stop me from speaking about what I truly feel. He surely didn’t deserve this kinda of a treatment and it disturbed me as well,” he added.
“Kannada industry and the people of our land are known for good reasons for which kannada and karnataka is respected across all states. We shouldn’t be spreading this kind of message. Rebelling like this isn’t an answer or a reaction towards any situation. I do understand there will be differences between actors, fans etc and I’m no one to come in between and speak about that. But I also am someone who was close to both Darshan and Puneeth and keeping the position I held in their lives, took this liberty to pen down my feelings.
Forgive me if at all spoke more than what I should have. Having traveled 27 years in this fraternity have realized one thing for sure. Nothing and no one is forever. Let’s spread love, respect and get the same in return from all. That’s the only way one can win anyone and any situation,” he concluded.
