Seeking to know whether the peaceful protests could be termed as violence he said his remarks as all the Tamils united on the emotive issue.

Tamil cinema has never seen an actor like you, who comes out with noise during release of your movies, he added.

He questioned the Superstar was what had done for Tamil Nadu with the money earned through acting in Tamil films and alleged that he had betrayed the Tamils across the world.

He sought to know where Rajinikanth was when innocent Tamils were killed in Sri Lanaka, keeping mum over the Neutrino and methane projects. ‘You have never opened your mouth on any issue, but only for Cauvery you called the peaceful protests as those indulging in violence', he said.

''Now only it was revealed that you are the messenger of Karnataka. Your mask is uncovered.'

Expressing regret over the attack on police during the April 10 massive protest demanding shifting of the IPL matches, Bharathiraaja advised Rajinikanth not to create infighting among Tamils.
