After shocking Kannada film industry with his cheap remark on late
actor Toogudeepa Srinivas and facing severe criticism from the
for the same, producer Soorappa Babu has put an end to the whole
drama by apologising Meena Toogudeepa at a press meet jointly
organised by both the parties.
"I have committed a mistake and I have realised the magnitude of
it. I should not have passed such remarks on senior actor of
Toogudeepa Srinivas' calibre. But every man makes mistakes. So, I
am offering a public apology to Meena Toogudeepa," said Soorappa
The disappointed producer added that Meena Toogudeepa is like
his mother and he is not ashamed to beg pardon from her for my
mistake. "I don't have any issue at bowing my head at her feet but
the only thing which is bothering me is why it is getting
publicised now, as it is a three-year old video clipping."
"However, vested interests have tried to defame me through this
incident and I will expose them in the coming days. I will also
reveal who else are there in the video," concludes Babu.
The press meet was attended by Dinakar Toogudeepa, Sa Ra
Govindu, Ganesh, Munirathna, MS Ramesh, KC Chandrasekhar and
