Sahasa Simha RIP…fans you need to be ashamed

31 Dec

We lost a great actor yesterday. May his soul Rest in Peace.

Having said that, I have no words to express my disgust at the way the fans behaved. Gandhi Bazaar was destroyed. Houses near National College grounds were vandalized. I had to rescue my wife who was stuck there (she had gone early in the morning for a function). McDonalds was looted. I met a small businessman who spent his entire savings on a small mobile store which was totalled and looted.

Contrast this with the class and dignity that Vishnuvardhan’s family showed during the entire time.

The so called fans are not fans..they are hooligans. May they rot !!!

    I always wonder if it is the fans who commit such vandalism or could it be the anti social elements.

    Appalling! and the police force is always helpless at these times.
    This is the worst insult they can give the departed soul- I hear even his wife was hurt by a stone.

    Yes it was indeed a shame on the people who created such a scene destroying public property and torching vehicles outside abhiman studio this needs to be condemned. Family to be complimented for their full cooperation with authorities in maintaining law and order and completing the cremation. Police did their best under the circumstances.
    may dr.vishnuvardhans soul rest in peace.

    How scary for your wife. Really, with this kind of mob culture it was good that schools were closed. What do they really gain by vandalism is beyond understanding.

    Vishnu Vardhan was really a good actor and by all media accounts a great gentleman, too. May his soul rest in peace.

    I feel sorry for affected people for no reason at every such incidents (demise of celebreties). It was a natural and not caused by any other rivalry – so why should people get outraged and vandalize things around. It makes me think WHY even give such so-called “FANS” an opportunity to give their final respects (translate: WHY make it a public affair: Root Cause) when it is known that going to create a havoc; and on top of that make political statements to keep quiet. It doesn’t make sense to me. Similar thing happened 3 years ago when Dr.Rajkumar passed away.

    At times I think it is their own tax money that they destroy when they destroy public assets (Bus, roads, etc), but again perhaps those people do not pay taxes, so they wouldn’t care anyway.

    So true, Vijay. I hope your wife is alright. I understand the pain, as I was stuck near Raj Kumar’s house the day he passed away. It was so chaotic. Vishuvardhan was a such a great man, both professionally and personally. May god rest his soul in peace

    rest in peace Vishnu….we love you

    guys….no true fan would resort to such hooliganisms…..they are not fans !!!!! so in this respect I don’t think the title for this post is apt.
