Ban On Kichcha's Movies

Janata Dal (Secular) on Friday wrote to the Election Commission, seeking a ban on the screening and telecast of movies, shows and commercials featuring the Kannada superstar Kichcha Sudeep, claiming they might influence voters in upcoming Assembly elections.

On Wednesday, Sudeep confirmed he would campaign for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Speculations were rife about Sudeep and fellow bigscreen star Darshan Tugudeepa joining the BJP. However, the former clarified that he would only campaign for “his friends” in the BJP as opposed to joining the party and would also not contest the May 10 Assembly polls.

The superstar was in media spotlight for the better part of Wednesday amid speculations of his joining the ruling party.

Addressing a joint press conference with Karnataka Chief Minister Basavraj Bommai on Wednesday, Sudeep said, “I had no need to come here, and I an not here for any platform or money. I have here only for a person. I have high regard for CM Mama (Bommai). That’s why I am announcing my full support to Bommai sir”.

On whether he believes in the BJP’s ideology, Sudeep said, “As a citizen, I totally respect certain decisions PM Modi has taken, but that’s my perspective. But that has got nothing to do with me sitting here today.”

CM Bommai said further Sudeep doesn’t belong to any political party.

Reacting to the superstar’s statement on Wednesday, South star Prakash Raj said, “I am shocked and hurt by Kichha Sudeep’s statement.”
