Kumaraswamy's statement comes in after the actor began involving himself in the rallies held in Mandya in the support of Sumalatha, the wife of late Congress MP and actor Ambareesh.

"I can't believe I agree to make films with such actors," Kumaraswamy further said. He added that his supporters were silent on the matter up until now since they had Kumaraswamy's well-being in mind.

The politician went on to add, "Do not believe all that you see onscreen. What you witness on a daily basis is the truth. Where had these actors been when the farmers committed suicide?"

However, these comments have not been well received by fans of the actor.
