While several celebs have remained tight-lipped over the ban on Jallikattu continuing, Simbu has expressed his views on it.

The star, extending his support for the famous bull-fighting sport, has issued a press note.

According to the press note, “Jallikattu is the cultural symbol of our state and it is our pride too. We have been practicing this art of valour for years, and it is utterly disgraceful when some groups and individuals manage to misguide and misinform the authorities of the governance and judiciary on this art that is considered as a cultural symbol of our state. Jallikattu is not the only game that portrays the Bravery of Tamil People; it also protects our Indian cattle breeds too. “

It goes on to add,”But due to the Ban of Supreme Court, Jallikattu has not taken place for the past two years. We abide by the regulations of this country as a citizen of this country, but never at the cost of our cultural identity. Imposing a law against the popular sentiments of a particular state can never be a binding factor. I trust and bank hopes on the wise men at the helm to intervene and sort out this issue once for all.”

The star has said that he has expressed his views on this issue not as an actor but as a ‘son of the soil.’
