Karnataka : A massive protest has been staged by Pro-Kannada organisation activists in the city on Thursday against Tamil actor Sathyaraj, who essays the character of Kattappa in 'Baahubali 2'. The movie has received a further threat to be banned in Karnataka and will be allowed to hit the silver screens of the state only if actor Sathyaraj apologies for his controversial comments made 9-years ago on Kannadigas and the vexed Cauvery water issue.

Supporting Tamil farmers demanding Cauvery water at a demonstration in 2008, actor Sathyaraj was quoted in the media saying, "Tamils should not be like a tree which stands silently as any dog comes and urinates on it". Hence, 'Baahubali' fame Kattappa has given only 8 days to apologies to ensure the Karnataka release of 'Baahubali: The Conclusion'.

According to the activists the screening of the movie without an apology would be a big blow to the self respect of Kannadigas. Led by veteran Kannada activist and former MLA Vatal Nagaraj, dozens of pro-Kannada organisations also threatened to shut down the state capital on April 28 as a sign of protest and also willing to ban all Tamil films all over the state.
