With the words uttered by Rajinikanth about the anti-Sterlite protests triggering a huge controversy, Pa Ranjith, the director of the superstar’s upcoming film ‘Kaala’, has come out with clarification.
Speaking to the media, the ‘Kabali’ and ‘Madras’ maker said, “It’s his opinion. But I spoke to Rajini sir today, he was not against the protest.”
He added: “Rajini sir actually felt painful for the unfortunate incidents happened. According to me, we can get our rights only through protest.”
Rajini, who visited the firing victims in Thoothukudi on Wednesday, later said that the peaceful agitation turned violent only because of anti-social elements. He also said frequent protests would turn the state into a graveyard.
