Soon after the incident, Actors like Darshan, Sudeep, Upendra, Raghavendra Rajkumar, Sarojadevi visited Ambareesh's house and requested him to withdraw his resignation. Even actresses like Tara, Sudharani, Pooja Gandhi, Andrita Ray and many others were present on the occasion.
However, Ambi's trick to wake the leading Kannada actors seems to have finally worked out in a big way. It is said that at the beginning, he did not agree to take back his resignation. When they assured to extend their support then and there onwards, he accepted their request.
Ambareesh said, "Let's join hands together and work together to build the Artistes' Association, which was the dream of Rajanna (Dr. Rajkumar). We need to strengthen it and show our unity. So I will call another two meetings and see. I will step down from the presidents seat, if actors continue to show the same response. This will be the last chance for everyone because I can't struggle alone."
