Once again Superstar Rajinikanth has cleared that he did not seek apology from anyone in Karnataka for his 'behaviour' and statements over the Hogenakkal water project issue.
In a function arranged to distribute cash aids to the workers of his recently released Kuselan, Rajini clearly said, "Some of the people here mislead the people that I had conveyed my apology to Kannada people and some Kannada organisations. It is completely a false one. I just (only) explained what i mean by the speech that I delivered during in that fast. But I have learnt a lot from that incident. It taught me how to speak on such occasions.
There was no intention to hurt Kannadigas in my speech. I condemned those who caused the brutal violence against Tamilians damaging public property in Karnataka and the border of Tamil Nadu. I didn't say anything wrong in my speech. I just explained exactly what I meant in that speech to the people on Karnataka and requested them to help make possible the release of Kuselan in Karnataka."
K Balachander, the mentor of Rajini and producer of Kuselan ,said that there was no necessity for Rajini to seek an apology from the people of Karnataka. "Most of the people and film personalities have understood his position. That is enough," he says.
