Beheading Warning To Top Star
Tamil hero Dhanush is presently working on a film titled 'Karnan' in the direction of Maari Selvaraj. Kalaipuli.S. Thanu is bankrolling the film under V.Creations banner. The title didn't go well with the fans of legendary Tamil actor Sivaji Ganesan. They are demanding the Dhanush team to add a prefix or suffix because its the title of Sivaji's classic film. Using the same title would hurt the sentiments of Sivaji Ganesan's ardent fans.
Keeping the objections of Sivaji Ganesan fans over the title aside, 'Karnan' movie attracted another controversy now. The movie story is reportedly based on the Kodiyankulam Maniyachi communal fight of 1999 in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu. The film unit said to have named the police status as Maniyachi. Pulippadai Association state secretary Bhavani said to have registered a complaint on the team of 'Karnan' in Tirunelveli to stall the movie shooting. He is claiming that the movie is showing their caste in a bad light and they will not allow such things. He also said that there is a scene in the film where Dhanush torches the police station such scenes should not be allowed to picturize.
There are also reports coming out some warning videos are being circulated in the social media where some youngsters are threatening to behead Dhanush and director Maari Selvaraj if they insult their caste through this film. We have to see how 'Karnan' team responds to these death warnings.
