Pro-Kannada activists on Monday protested in Bengaluru by burning posters of Bollywood actor Sunny Leones upcoming historical movie Veeramahadevi. The demonstrators said that Sunny playing the role of a warrior queen will bring disrepute to Indian culture.

The pro-Kannada activists have always invoked Sunnys past profession as an adult star to paint her as a threat to Indian culture. They have stepped up protests against Sunny in the light of her upcoming performance at a concert in Bengaluru. The event is scheduled to be held on November 3 and members of Kannada outfits have declared that they wont allow her to enter the city unless she drops out of the period drama.

“We will not let this happen. This is also disrespect to the (Chola) dynasty which built several Hindu temples in Karnataka and its our duty to ensure their image is not damaged. If the movie is not banned, we will not allow Sunny to enter our Garden city,” Harish Kumar, president, Ka Ra Ve (Yuva Sene), told Deccan Herald on Monday.

Then Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy even directed the police department to stop the actor from giving the performance.
