Baahubali 2

Bangalore, April 20: After a provocative speech by an actor on the Cauvery water dispute, Bahubali director S.S. Rajamouli has appealed to allow the release of the blockbuster film’s sequel in Karnataka.

Actor Sathyaraj is seen urging Tamils purportedly at a demonstration by the Tamil film industry in solidarity with farmers seeking water from Karnataka to stand up for their rights and not be passive like a tree every dog would urinate on.

Pro-Kannada activists have objected to the “dog” reference and vowed not to allow the release of Bahubali 2 until Sathyaraj apologises.

Sathyaraj’s comments and issued an appeal through a video uploaded on his Facebook page to allow the release of the film in Karnataka.

Speaking in Kannada, Rajamouli, said: “Sathyaraj is neither the director nor the producer of the film. He will not suffer any loss if the movie is stopped (in Karnataka).”

“It won’t be fair if so many people are affected for a comment he made,” Rajamouli said. “We have spoken to Sathyaraj and explained the situation. But there’s nothing more we can do. It’s our request that you don’t involve us in an issue we are not connected with in any way.”

“This comment was made nine years ago, after which many of his movies, including Bahubali: The Beginning, was released in Karnataka. We can only request your full support to Bahubali 2,” Rajamouli added.

Last week, Bahubali: The Beginning was re-released as a build-up to the sequel.

The distributors plan to release Bahubali 2: The Conclusion in around 300 theatres in Karnataka, almost 100 more than the first part.

New Delhi, June 23: In order to save cutting of over “14000 trees” under the south Delhi redevelopment project, a protest was carried out by locals in the national capital on Friday night.

Pollution is wrecking a havoc in the national capital and the last couple of weeks witnessed intensely degraded air quality hitting the parameter of very poor to severe condition.

And now, the massive tree felling in the national capital had come at a time when the current average pollution level of Delhi is already at 300 Air Quality Index which falls in the category that risks life and limb of people.

Held under the “Delhi Trees SOS” campaign, the protest was called to aware people about the redevelopment project and urge the government to avoid cutting trees for the same.

“We are citizens of Delhi, who have formed this Delhi SOS initiative. We want to tell that it’s so stupid on half of the authorities to cut trees at a time when the weather of Delhi has been severe since last two years. Trees are very important to us. The government is saying that they will compensate by putting plants near Wazirabad bridge. We don’t think it’s a good idea,” Juhi Saklani, a member of the campaign, told news agency ANI.

The protest started at the Sarojini Nagar area.

On similar lines, a public interest litigation (PIL) was filed in the Delhi High Court against the same developmental project in which the petitioner claimed that the “Permission was granted incorrectly to cut over 2500 trees for various development projects.”

The plea further said that the felling of trees already started on Friday in at least six locations of the national capital.

The Delhi High Court has asked the petitioners to give photographs of the trees that were cut today.

Trees have been cut in Sarojini Nagar, Netaji Nagar, Kasturba Nagar, Tyagraj Nagar, Srinivaspuri, and Mohammadpur areas of Delhi.

The high court issued notices to the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, state-owned construction firm NBCC, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs and others.

However, it refused to put a stay on the construction projects for now. The court would now hear the plea on an urgent basis on Monday.
