The Karnataka government on Friday denied to give any permission for the performance of actress Sunny Leone on December 31st event for New Year’s Evening. Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy said, “No permission has been granted for Time Creation’s December 31st event in which Sunny Leone was to take part. The event billed as ‘Sunny Night in Bengaluru NYE 2018’ was to be held at Manyatha Tech Park on December 31 night. The members of pro-Kannada group, Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene (KARAVE) protests against Sunny Leone performance in a new year event in Bengaluru, they don’t want to participate her in the scheduled function.

They have threatened that if she performs in the party then the KARAVE workers would commit suicide. The Secretary of KARAVE, Jayadev Prasad said, “We don’t have any objection if sunny leone attends the programme as per Indian culture, in a saree. But if she comes in the event, with a half dress or in any other ways we will commit suicide.”

“We have already purchased 70 tickets for the event, If she dances half-naked, we will protest more and will also commit suicide to save our culture,” Secretary of KARAVE said. They also said that they know her “history” and she did not represent our Indian culture.

However, the organizers said to the protesters of KARAVE, the New Year bash had been planned to keep in mind the sensibilities of Kannada people and tried to pacify them. “Being a Kannadiga myself, I have ensured the standard of the event is representative of Indian culture. As Bengaluru and Hyderabad are her favourite places, Sunny Leone chose to come here, even though she got a lot of offers to dance on New Year’s Evening. This is a family programme. The culture of the state is not being disrespected,” organiser said to protesters.
