Fans demand an apology after Venkatesh Maha disrespects Yash's KGF character ‘Rocky’
Renowned director Venkatesh Maha is in trouble after he abused Yash's KGF character Rocky.
Known for films like C/o Kancharapalem and Modern Love Hyderabad, Venkatesh Maha recently said something controversial about KGF Chapter 2 and Yash's Rocky persona. Venkatesh Maha made a joke on Prashanth Neel's KGF 2 during a roundtable interview with other filmmakers Nandini Reddy, Indraganti Mohana Krishna, Shiva Nirvana, and Vivek Athreya.
He continued by calling the protagonist, Rocky bhai, played by Yash, "Nee*h Ka*ine Ku*te."
Sounding agitated while narrating the same, the director-turned-actor said he feels absurd when the protagonist’s mother wants him to get all the gold and become rich with the help of people in KGF by barely giving them anything. While a lot of fans support Maha for expressing his point of view as a director, many have threatened to ban his films in Karnataka if he doesn't apologise to Yash for his controversial remark. His way of expressing his opinion has backfired.
Twiteratti went beserk post Maha's statement went viral on social media. A twitter user wrote, "First ask sorry to @TheNameIsYash and his fans and to entire kannadigas, otherwise you will face further consequences..you bludy attention seeker,"
While another wrote, "From his words,It is clear @mahaisnotanoun he liked the movie very much but was not happy with KGF Hero's selfishness of Drowning the entire Gold(hardwork) in the name of Mom's Dream It is true but with a wrong tone & Again it's cinema So It is Director's Take #VenkateshMaha."
For the unversed, Yash and Prashanth Neel's film KGF 2 managed to put the Kannada film industry on a global map. Backed by Hombale Films, KGF 2 broke many records not only down South but even in the Hindi belt.
