Jallikattu Banned, even biriyani should be banned says, Kamal

Voicing his support for jallikattu, actor Kamal Haasan said that it was a tradition that needed to be held.

“For thousands of years, it has been known as a sport where we embrace the bull. It is not to be confused with what happens in Spain,” he said, speaking on the sidelines of the India Today Conclave where he was part of a session.

Reacting to animal rights activists who favour a ban on jallikattu on the ground that it is cruel to animals, Mr. Haasan said in that case even biriyani should be banned.

“I am one of the few Kollywood actors who has been a part of jallikattu. It does not involve winning or harming the bull but more about who can stay with the bull for the longest on the ground,” he said, and stated that as a Tamilian, he was proud of the tradition.

While a pro-jallikattu rally was held in the city on Sunday at the Marina Beach, Kollywood celebrities have also been voicing their support for jallikattu.

Earlier, music director and actor G.V. Prakash had announced a single “Kombu vechcha singamda” to save jallikattu and said on Twitter that the revenue generated from the song would be given to struggling farmers and their families in the State.
