'Challenged' star







Glaring.
Taking out the 'laang'.
Wounded.
Ready to pick a fight.
Ruffled hair.
Cowboy hat.

Here are the many avatars of Darshan. Irrespective of his alleged affair with his co-star Nikita that led to him beating his wife and getting arrested, there is no denying that he is the most popular contemporary Kannada hero among auto drivers. He is being ridiculed as the 'Challenged Star' after the latest fiasco. Kannada film producers' association showed its idiocy by imposing a 3 year ban on Nikita. This incident brought into light the male dominated, chauvinistic attitude of Kannada filmdom - how they treat women in their movies is exactly the same how behave outside.
