STR says “When everyone preferred the hatred bandwagon to get publicity, I wanted to spread the love. Now, there is only love between Kannadigas and Tamils”.
In his statement, the actor said “I thank people of Karnataka for proving that there is no issue between Kannadigas and Tamils. Only political parties are trying to create an image that we hate each other but these videos have proven them wrong. Also, only a few media houses covered this news in Tamil and a few politicians have talked about it, this shows they want us to be separated, I thank them for showcasing their real face. Violence is not a solution for any problem, love is all we need. We will unite for humanity and show them our power”.
Veteran Kannada actor Anand Nag said STR is more matured that senior actors Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan in Cauvery issue. The actor is getting a lot of calls from media, politicians and common people.Well done STR, as usual, let the haters hate, you continue spreading love and keep rocking!
