Now that cartoon picture says it all. Cut to April 4,2008, Hoggenagal water issue fast meeting of Kollywood cine stars, this man made a furious speech, it was so furious that everyone was initially surprised by his comments and really happy that he is in full support for TN in the Hoggenagal issue. An excerpt from his speech here i quote: “Shouldn’t those who place a stumbling block on a drinking water project (in Hoggenagal to benefit some 4 million Tamils) be beaten up to be taught a lesson?”. Cut back to the present and we have the same man just because his movie “KUSELAN” was not allowed to be released in Karnataka begged for forgiveness to the Kannadigas. An excerpt from his speech now i quote: “Money, success and fame have not gone to my head. I carelessly erred in the past due to my eagerness to help the Tamils. If given a chance, I will do much more to help people of Karnataka”. So are Tamilians fools???
Not really!!!. It is Mr.Rajnikanth who is. This very incident goes to show the selfish act of Mr.Rajnikanth who just for a few crores has sold the sentiments of the people of TN. He who answered “i don’t care, i want justice” when reporters asked him what if Kanndigas do not allow you to screen your movie in Karnataka??? is the same man who has now fell flat to the legs of the Kannada Rakshana Vedika(KRV) who said it was a victory for Kannada pride. He has also sent an unconditional apology to the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce president on this issue. Shame on a man who has earned such a status and is being loved by many in TN. He has proved his real self to the people of TN and is not amusing even his fellow actors and members of the Tamil film industry. Instead of doing all this apologizing and stuff he could have just kept “QUIET” on April 4 which would have not led him to this shameful act.
Well all this adds up to one thing, that Rajnikanth has just toyed around with the people of TN and proved to them that he is a good actor in real life too. All he has brought himself with this apology is a release for Kuselan in Karnataka(ah!!!isn’t he a happy man now), a bad name among people of TN(@##^&*((*^%&()) and has won hearts of the Kannada people. This incident just proves how opportunistic and selfish people can be in making things work for them and hats off to Mr.Rajnikanth for showing us just that!!!.
P.S. This post does not aim at sparking racial or regional issues. It just aims at showcasing how people can be oppurtunistic and selfish and can change colours just to get a thing or two done just for the sake of money.
