The black cheetah the Junglee Vijay has lost his temper once again. He bashed a cameraman of prestigious channel Suvarana on Saturday afternoon and locked himself in another controversy.
The news reaching us explains that actor Vijay went with his girl friend Shuba Punja also an actress of Kannada cinema to attend a ‘Homa’ at Shimoga. As the crowd was heavy at the ritual place the cameraman went to the spot to capture the proceedings of Homa but Vijay advised him not to pan his camera where he and Shuba Punj were sitting.
Vijay coming out from the ritual place in Shimoga went straight to the cameraman of Suvarna channel and hit him from his fist. This is how the reel life hero became a real life villain!
There has been widespread condemnation to this act by actor Vijay. The Shimoga district journalists, Gulbarga district journalists, Karnataka Rakshana Vedike have protested the attitude of Vijay.
One of the producers of Kannada cinema Ba Ma Harish urged the Karnataka Film Chamber to ban Vijay from acting for one year.
When Chitratara.com editor R Manohar tried to contact him on his version actor Vijay said he will call back after one hour at 4.30 pm on Saturday 13th June 2009.
