    Kannada producers feel foolish about banning Nikita

    Kannada producers feel foolish about banning Nikita

    The ban imposed on Kannada actor Nikita Thukral by the Kannada producers for being responsible for marital discord between actor Darshan and his wife was lifted. The question now being raised is why actor Darshan himself has not been banned. The withdrawal came three days after Nikita was banned for an alleged affair with Kannada star Darshan, who is now in jail for assaulting his wife Vijayalakshmi. The producers who effectively held her responsible for marital discord in the Darshan household now concede it was unnecessary. Kannada Producers’ Association Muniratna Naidu said, “We admit now that the ban was foolish. We’ve wronged an actress who was good and kind hearted.” Nikita, who has been keeping a low profile till now, reacted with a sigh of relief.

    Though his wife Vijayalakshmi has changed her statement, local court doesn’t budge

    Darshan fans say wife-beating is normal?

    Darshan fans say wife-beating is normal?

    Darshan’s fans are ‘shocked’ – because he is a star, yes, but also because of the nature of his offense. Wife-beating is hardly a serious crime, our source heard them say. Condemning the ‘Challenging Star’, actor Raghavendra Rajkumar said, “Any person raising a hand on a woman is unacceptable. I would pray for the Darshan couple’s quick recovery and that they settle down in life fast.” This incident has been a reality check for the society at large to see how biased and sexist we have become. It was a major relief when the Kannada Film Producers’ Association (KFPA) revoked the ban on actor Nikitha, who was allegedly responsible for the unfortunate incident. Now we are waiting to see if KFPA will slap a ban on Darshan or not.

    From being just Darshan’s family affair, the unfortunate incident is leading to serious debates
    While the Kannada film industry appears divided on supporting actor Darshan, who is currently in custody for allegedly assaulting his wife Vijayalakshmi, there is near unanimity when it comes to supporting the ‘other woman’ Nikitha Thukral. The 30-year-old resident of Mumbai has found support not only amongst the Sandalwood bigwigs like the Raj Kumar family and other co-stars, some producers are even suggesting that they would sign her up for their films by flouting the three-year ban imposed by the Karnataka Film Producers Association.

    Has Darshan been denied bail?

    A Bangalore court denied bail to ‘Challenging Star’ Darshan, who has been arrested for assaulting his wife, Vijayalakshmi, though she withdrew her complaint against him. Acting on her complaint, a group of Kannada film producers has banned Nikitha from signing new films. However, several leading Kannada producers, directors and actors have questioned the ban on Nikitha saying personal and professional matters should be kept apart. Darshan’s lawyers may move the sessions court in the next few days against Hulagi’s ruling denying bail.
