Star of the movie Jaggesh had kept mum on the issue so far. But now he has replied to the same on his Twitter account, through a poem in Kannada.
Here is the meaning of the poem, tweeted by Jaggesh:
“Hundreds of fathers to claim victory..!
But defeat is an orphan child...!
When you have something there are hundreds of relatives
When there is nothing the shutter of the shop is drawn
Life is a war zone
Fight and win it
Garland of flowers awaits you if you win
Weight of insult will push you down in defeat
Smile and make others laugh
Live with a smile on your face
That is the best way to live”.
