Mangaluru: Srujan Lokesh who is riding high with the success of his chat show ‘Maja Talkies’ is known for his rib tickling one liners. But on Saturday one of his comments about ‘Bhootharadhane’ one of the ancient traditional rituals of Dakshina Kannada.
On Saturday, team of Kannada movie ‘Shuddhi’ was the guest at his show. The blunder happened while interacting with the audience. One of the girl asked Srujan, if government work is God’s work then what is about IT-BT work.
Adarsh, the director of Shuddhi promptly answered; It’s a work for ones bread. The heroine replied; Work is worship.
Had the conversation ended here nothing would have gone wrong. But in an attempt to crack a joke out of it Srujan said; yes government work is God’s work but IT-BT job is like Bhootaradhane in Dakshina Kannada.
He went on to say that IT-BT job is like Bhootaradhane because both happen during night. Only night shift.
Social media erupted with anger against the actor after the show was aired on Saturday.
