Kranthiveera Sangolli Rayanna has landed in controversy
again. The Darshan starrer movie, which was released on
November 1, is in trouble over the portrayal of Nikita's character of
Rayanna's girlfriend in the film.
A Kannada group has protested against the movie in Gulbarga and
it has demanded the makers of Sangolli Rayanna to delete
the Nikita's portion from the film. An activist said, "We object
Nikita's portion and the love track 'Nanyedhe veene...' between
Darshan and Nikita. Sangolli Rayanna never had an affair
and the duet song is an insult to the historical
"Instead of showcasing Sangolli Rayanna's contribution
for the freedom movement, the film sends a wrong message about him.
They can't have a duet track to add commercial values. We urge
makers of the film to remove the song immediately," he
It has to be noted that in the title card of Kranthiveera
Sangolli Rayanna itself, the movie bosses admit that they have
made slight changes in the story for cinematic purpose. However,
the movie has got a grand opening and on the release day it has
collected Rs 3 crore.
