After shocking Kannada film industry with his cheap remark on late actor Toogudeepa Srinivas and facing severe criticism from the Darshan fans for the same, producer Soorappa Babu has put an end to the whole drama by apologising Meena Toogudeepa at a press meet jointly organised by both the parties.
"I have committed a mistake and I have realised the magnitude of it. I should not have passed such remarks on senior actor of Toogudeepa Srinivas' calibre. But every man makes mistakes. So, I am offering a public apology to Meena Toogudeepa," said Soorappa Babu.
The disappointed producer added that Meena Toogudeepa is like his mother and he is not ashamed to beg pardon from her for my mistake. "I don't have any issue at bowing my head at her feet but the only thing which is bothering me is why it is getting publicised now, as it is a three-year old video clipping."
"However, vested interests have tried to defame me through this incident and I will expose them in the coming days. I will also reveal who else are there in the video," concludes Babu.
The press meet was attended by Dinakar Toogudeepa, Sa Ra Govindu, Ganesh, Munirathna, MS Ramesh, KC Chandrasekhar and others.
