The rift between Puneeth Rajkumar and Challenging Star Darshan fans seems far from over. What began on the 18th of December following a scornful attack on the latter during a public event in Hosapete quickly blew out of proportion, with social media ending up as the battleground for fans belonging to either side. While the entire Kannada film fraternity stood by Darshan and condemned the attack, the fans have been unwilling to call a truce.
And now, as matters continue to ebb and flow, a prominent Puneeth Rajkumar fan association has lodged a complaint against alleged Darshan fans for making disrespectful comments against the Dr Rajkumar family. Akhila Karnataka Yuva Seva Samiti, Bellary, reached out to the cyber cell at the Bellary Police regarding the spiteful comments made about Puneeth Rajkumar and his family, with the complaint also urging the authorities to take strict action against those responsible.
"Since the last few days, a few miscreants have been making scathing remarks on social media about Dr. Rajkumar and his family members, including Karnataka Ratna Dr. Puneeth Rajkumar, Ashwini Puneeth Rajkumar, Dr. Shiva Rajkumar, Raghavendra Rajkumar, and others, who have made immense contributions to the land of Karnataka and its culture. These vulgar comments, which are being made by a few posing as Darshan fans, are impacting the sanctity and the healthy environment of our state - we request you pay heed to our complaint and take stiff action against those responsible," said the complaint.
The feud between the two fan groups was kindled after an alleged Puneeth Rajkumar hurled a slipper at Darshan during a massive event in Hosapete. The Challenging Star has been touring the entire state of Karnataka to promote his upcoming film Kranti and the event Hosapete saw the launch of the second song from the film's soundtrack. From Kiccha Sudeep to Shiva Rajkumar, many came in support of Darshan to vehemently condemn the use of violence.
