Taking to his social media handle, the Yajamana actor wrote – ‘I realize that my celebrities (fans) are more hurt than me at this point. Such events make a person stronger and not weaker. We have seen similar examples in our own motherland. Thank you to all the friends and actors in the film industry who stood behind me. Thanks also to some who tried to steer this event down the wrong path.”

“I have been saying since the beginning that if there are a hundred people who want to spoil it, there will be millions who want to rejoice it. This slave is forever indebted to your loving embrace,” he adds.

The incident

On the work front, Darshan who is known for action films is currently promoting his forthcoming action drama Kranti. Written and directed by V. Harikrishna, Kranti fronts Darshan, Rachita Ram, and Ravichandran in the lead roles.

Darshan even thanked his all-time rival Kichcha Sudeep for supporting him. In a Tweet, he wrote, @KicchaSudeep Thank you for your kind words.


This film marks the third collaboration of Darshan with Rachita after their 2013 romantic comedy Bulbul and the 2014 action drama Ambareesha.
