Shivarajkumar has managed to convince the Ashok and Ravindranath led Karnataka Film Workers and Technichians Federations strike that commenced today.
Shivanna's film Belli was to start this week and the strike would have affected the shooting of the film. Shivanna talked to the Okkuta members and convinced them to take back their strike. He has promised to speak to other film industry bodies and find a permanent solution to the workers problems. The strike was therefore called off and an impending crisis averted.
