How is Sunny allowed to portray woman warrior, asks KRVYS
"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.
