Kannada activists protest against Sunny Leone's show in Bengaluru

Pro-Kannada activists staged a protest today calling for a ban on Sunny Leone's show in Bengaluru on November 3, saying it was against Kannada culture.

The event titled 'Purity and Expression' is being organized by Time Creations at the Manyata Tech Park in the city.

Members of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene (KRVYS) burnt an effigy of the former adult film star.

"We staged a demonstration against the event... It's not just about the show here. There is much more to it... The actress is going to play the lead role in a period film based on a woman warrior from South India," KRVYS, President, K Harish, said.

"How can an actress like her be allowed to portray the legendary woman worshipped by everyone?" he asked.

Sunny's show was also canceled last year

On December 31 last year, a new year's eve show featuring Sunny, organized by Time Creations, was canceled following protests by the KRVYS and denial of permission by the authorities.
