Fights between stars is common. The ego clash is seen between superstars in every film industry. Kannada film industry is not new to such ego clash. The difference of opinion between Sudeep and the Rajkumar family has been known for a long time. Now Sudeep’s good friend Darshan has also joined his rank.
There was a time when Sudeep and Shivaraj Kumar were good buddies. But now the things are not the same between the two. The two actors are never seen together in any public event and avoid each other with much disdain.
A while back, Shivaraj Kumar tried to douse the fire by saying things are fine between him and Sudeep, but no such statement has come from Sudeep so far. On the other hand Darshan and Sudeep have become very close friends. At one look it would seem like the combination of Darshan and Sudeep is trying to break the hegemony of Parvatamma Rajkumar over the Kannada film industry.
Then again, the events that took place during the cultural event, “Amara Jeeva Dr Rajkumar”, organized to celebrate the Dr Rajkumar Memorial inauguration, was very unfortunate and not a healthy sign for the already beleaguered film industry.
During the cultural event, many stars and veteran actors performed on stage to the songs from Dr Rajkumar’s movie. The event was seen as a time for the whole state to unite for the common cause of Kannada language. The event was attended by several dignitaries from the entertainment industry and the government.
However, the events that transpired, did not go down well with the fans of Dr Rajkumar.
