Sathyaraj, who played the role of Kattappa in ‘Baahubali’ franchise, has become a household name. His role in the film was loved by everyone, however now a non-bailable arrest warrant has been issued against him. Not just him, but the arrest warrant has also been issued against other South actors like Suriya, R Sarathkumar and Sripriya.
Well, this has happened as the actors didn’t attend the hearing of a case they all were involved in. In 2009, the South India Cine Actors’ Association (Nadigar Sangam) had a meeting in which they had condemned a Tamil daily for publishing an article which allegedly diminished the image of actresses. However, M Rozario, a freelance journalist in Ooty stated that in the meeting the actors targeted all journalists and not just the daily.
In 2011, the actors were asked to appear in court. However, the actors had filed a petition in the Madras high court to seek dispense of their personal appearance in the court. But, the petition filed by them was dismissed.
And recently, when the judicial magistrate Senthikumar Rajavel came to know that the actors have not appeared in the court for hearing, he issued a non-bailable warrant against them.
