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.

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.
