Kannada rapper Chandana Shetty caught in controversy due to proposing his love on the stage of a Government program.
On Friday, there was a Yuva Dasara event at the Mysuru Maharaja’s college ground. This event was organized by the state government. The famous Kannada rapper Chandan Shetty was a performer in the program.
But the program did not go too well for him. Actually, Chandan used the stage for surprising his girlfriend after his performance. Chandan is in a relationship with Nivedita Gowda. After his performance in the Dasara event, he bent on knees in front of the crowd and proposed his girlfriend for marriage. Nivedita was full of surprise at the proposal and her happiness was clearly visible on her face. She happily accepted the proposal amidst the cheering crowd.
‘I thought it would be the right opportunity to take our relationship to next level. It is music that binds us.’
This is what the rapper had said while proposing his girlfriend.
However, this act was not liked by all. The Minister-in-charge of Mysuru, V Somanna, got offended by the act and he asked the police to issue a show-cause notice to the rapper. According to Somanna, Chandan should not use a public stage for his personal purpose. He said that it was a state government program and proposing his girlfriend for marriage was Chandan’s personal matter. Moreover, according to Somanna, the Dasara event is a sacred event and it is inappropriate for anyone to ask a girl for marriage in the event.
‘ I have told the police to issue a show-cause notice. We will consider action as per the law. It is wrong to misuse the platform.’
This is what V Somanna said to the reporters after the act.
He also said that the’ Yuva Dasara stage is sacred as it is associated with the Dasara festival, which has religious significance. He shouldn’t have used it to ask a girl to marry him.’
This was not all. It wasn’t just the minister whom the act offends. But three private complaints are also there at the Lakshmipuram police station against the proposal.
After the complaint, Chandan apologized to the public through his social media platform. He posted a video in which he said that he had no intention of hurting the sentiments of the people and he did it only for the entertainment of the fans. He apologized for not informing the organizers beforehand.
‘ This was done purely for entertainment to keep my fans happy. But I had not informed the organizers about this.’
This is what Chandan says in his video.
This act of Chandan is getting mixed reactions from the public. Some of his fans are happy to see the couple uniting while the other is with the minister’s point of view. People are posting various responses on social media relating to this.
It is worth mentioning that Chandan and Nivedita were co-contestants in Big Boss Season 5.
