Rang De Basanti actor Siddharth, who is busy with his intriguing South ventures, witnessed a massive problem, when he was promoting his upcoming film Chiththa in Bengaluru. His event was interrupted by certain party workers claiming issue over the ongoing battle over Cauvery River between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and asked the actor to cancel the event. With not much choice, Siddharth had to walk out of the event midway. Addressing the concern, Siddharth opened up to his fans about mishap during a social media interaction with them.
Siddharth gets stopped from promoting Chiththa in Bengaluru; event gets disrupted
As per Indian Express report, Siddharth revealed about the incident during an Instagram Live session, wherein he said, “Yesterday, in Bengaluru there was an incident. The backstory of it is that this is the first time, as a producer, I screened my film to many ahead of the movie’s theatrical release. It was shown to the media in Chennai and Kochi. There was a plan for such a show in Bengaluru as well. I had plans to show the film to about 2,000 students ahead of the release. No one has done it so far. There was also a plan to screen the film for Kannada stars that night. But everything was cancelled by us as a mark of respect to the bandh. We incurred a huge loss, but beyond that, it was disappointing that we couldn’t share a good film with people there.”
He went on to add, “The press was supposed to watch the film after the interaction, but you all saw what happened there. It happened in front of many cameras. I don’t want to talk about it. When the film is getting a good response, I don’t want to talk about anything to distract the attention. There’s no relation between my film and the issue. I believe my social responsibility will show up in the films I make spending my money.”
Chiththa is expected to follow the journey of a paternal uncle and his niece as the former sets out on a search mission when she disappears. Directed by S.U. Arun Kumar, the film is expected to release in multiple languages including Telugu and Kannada.
