However, the protests might end after Sathyaraj who plays Kattappa in Baahubali 2 apologised to people of Karnataka yesterday via a video. He said that the ban on film will not cause any loss to Sathyaraj. The biggest example for this is that for the last 30 years my assistant has been Shekar who is a Kannadiga. I was also offered a few Kannada movies. He made this statement in response to Sathyaraj’s statement in Chennai. I am not against Kannadigas or Karnataka. Even though he made these comments nine years ago, this video went viral on the net just before weeks of Baahubali release and caused protests.

SS Rajamouli also posted a video a few days ago where he appealed to people of Karnataka for the peaceful release of Baahubali 2 in the state. However, due to the time constraint, I could not take up on the offers… The feelings of people of Karnataka were hurt after they saw a video of my speech on YouTube from the past. “We will meet and announce our decision tomorrow,” Vatal Nagaraj, head of Kannada Okoota told PTI yesterday.
