Upendra spoke to Sri Vidyadheesha Theertha Swamiji of Shiroor Mutt, who has been the loudest voice in this protest among his supporters the Bajrang Dal and Sri Ram Sene. At the end of the meeting, Uppi agreed to cut the ‘offensive’ scenes from the film. He also visited the Sri Krishna Mutt to make an offering as reparation for his mistake.
