Chief Minister warns 'KGF' star Yash
Last month, 'KGF' star Yash openly backed Sumalatha, the yesteryear actress who is contesting as an Independent from Mandya parliamentary constituency. She is the arch-rival of the Congress-JDS combine, which has fielded HD Kumaraswamy's son Nikhil Gowda from the constituency.
Recently, Yash described JDS as a party of thieves. This has not gone down well with HDK, the Karnataka Chief Minister. Since he is also a film producer, HDK has commented that stars like Yash wouldn't survive without producers. Incidentally, one of Yash's films was bankrolled by HDK's former wife.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, IT raids took place at actor Darshan's residence. Darshan, too, supports Sumalatha.
