Raghava Lawrence, who faced the wrath of Kamal Haasan fans for his remarks at the audio launch of superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Darbar’, has once again clarified that his intention was not to hurt the Makkal Needhi Maiam founder or his followers.
Speaking at an event in Chennai to celebrate the birthday of Rajinikanth, Lawrence said Kamal approached him to join the cast of ‘Thalaivan Irukkindran’, but he couldn’t take it up as he was busy with his film ‘Kaala Bhairava’.
After Raghava Lawrence’s fiery speech at the audio launch of ‘Darbar’, there were a few who opined that he spoke against Kamal Haasan. They were referring to his remarks about throwing cow dung on Kamal’s posters when he was a child.
Following this, the actor-choreographer-filmmaker came out with an explanation, stating that his speech has been twisted. “Hi Friends and Fans.. After my speech at Darbar audio launch I saw few posts only highlighting that I hit cow dung on Kamal sir’s poster, see the whole video I have spoken that when I was a child as being a huge Thalaivar fan I did such things against Kamal sir without knowing and Also added saying that when I see them walking by holding hands today I feel very happy.
I have huge respect for Kamal sir. when ever I feel i have spoken something wrong I will apologise to anyone but in this I haven’t said anything wrong you will know if you see the whole video properly. Few people are planning to twist this. I know how much respect I have for Kamal sir by heart. I think it’s not necessary to prove or explain it to anyone.”
