KFCC president Sa Ra Govindu has filed a police complaint against Prashant Sambargi who had posted a video on Facebook alleging that he and Vatal Nagaraj were preventing the release of Baahubali 2 for "roll call and money".
The complaint is filed in the High Grounds Police Station. Govindu has stated in the complaint that a derogatory remark by Tamil actor Satyaraj against Kannadigas has resulted in a protest against him by various Kannada organisations. Th
ey have demanded the film starring him Baahubali 2 should not be released till he apologized for his remarks. The KFCC is an organization that facilitates the release of all films. To help in the issue he as KFCC president had spoken to people in Tamil and Telugu industries and sought Sathyaraj's apology so that there is no problem in releasing the Telugu film. While he was making these efforts to dilute the situation Prashant Sambargi has posted on Facebook that he was preventing the film's release to make money. This has caused defamation to him and KFCC the complaint says.
Sambargi's video transcript has also been attached to the complaint. According to it Sambargi has said that though Sarathkumar another Tamil actor who made derogatory comments acted in Kannada film Raajakumara it was allowed to be released because it was a Puneeth Rajkumar film. But Baahubali was stopped to make roll call.
