During the release of Rajinikanth’s recent release Kabali, his posters and hoarding were put up in many places in Bengaluru and Mysuru. Some of those posters have now been torn by the mob shouting anti-Tamil Nadu slogans.
In July, about 15 pro-Kannada activists were also taken into preventive custody by Vyalikaval Police on the first day of Kabali’s release. It was after their protest threatened to disturb law and order situation near Nataraj Theatre in Seshadripuram.
However, the government is also taking precautions attacks against other celebs Prabhu Deva, Bobby Simha and Ramesh Anand from the activists of a pro-Kannada group.
