Trisha krishnan, kamal haasan, rajinikanth, simbu, jallikattu, jallikattu supporters Kamal Haasan and Simbu today came out in support of leading actor Trisha Krishnan.

Top film stars Kamal Haasan and Simbu today came out in support of leading actor Trisha who found herself in the eye of a storm for her association with PETA which is opposing bull-taming sport Jallikattu. “Pls stop hurting Ms Trisha,” Haasan, who supports Jallikattu, tweeted. “Let the differences between us (Jallikattu supporters) and her (Trisha) become known,” he said, “Let the debate (on Jallikattu) continue. Way should be made for the well-being of both Trisha and the bull,” he wrote in another tweet.

Meanwhile, actor Simbu has said Trisha had not known that PETA will oppose Jallikattu. He said it would be appropriate to talk about her good work in adopting homeless street dogs. Trisha, an animal lover, had appeared in PETA advertisements supporting adoption of homeless dogs. After she was targeted by pro-Jallikattu groups for her association with animal rights group PETA which opposes the sport, Trisha today said she had never spoken against the bull taming sport.

Trisha said, “I have never spoken against Jallikattu at any given point.” In strong words, she criticised the protesters on her Twitter handle, “Disrespecting a woman and her family is Tamil culture? You should be ashamed to call yourself a Tamilian or even speak about Tamil culture.”

The actor was shooting at Nemathanpatti near Karaikudi for Tamil thriller Garjanai, which is a remake of Bollywood film NH10 that starred Anushka Sharma. As reported by The Hindu, the police said, after learning that a group of youth, including volunteers from Naam Tamizhar Katchi, had held up shooting on Friday, Trisha, who was staying at the MAM Bungalow on the outskirts of the town, had to pack up and leave for Madurai.
