Darshan's challenge to his fans
The actor appealed to his fans to support all actors who are part of Muniratna Kurukshetra, in the wake of their displeasure over his picture not being included in the film's audio release passes
Darshan, known as the Challenging star in the Kannada industry, has — true to his moniker — come up with a challenge for his fans. Ahead of the audio launch of the actor's upcoming film, Muniratna Kurukshetra on July 7, the producer had distributed passes which did not have a picture of the Yajamana actor. The star's fans were upset and expressed their displeasure on social media. Darshan, in a video message to his fans on Facebook and Twitter, said, "You call me a celebrity, but each one of you is a celebrity to me. Kurukshetra, even though it is my landmark film, is a mythological drama that consists of an ensemble cast — including Appaji (late Ambareesh), Arjun Sarja, Ravi Chandran, Srinivas Murthy and Nikhil. Irrespective of who is part of the film, I request all my fans give equal respect to all of them."
He also goes on to mention that a film like Kurukshetra was a big challenge and praised producer Muniratna for pulling it off. "Don't just look for which actor's posters are released, and whose cut outs have been put up. I request you all to come with your family members and watch the characters — Duryodhana, Arjuna and Karna. This is my challenge to you all. Let there be no fights, watch the film with love," he said.
Muniratna Kurukshetra, directed by Naganna has music by V Harikrishna and is slated for release on August 9. However, as we had reported yesterday, the production house is discussing advancing the film's release to August 2. A decision on this will be taken soon.
