Numerous celebrities coming out in support of Jallikattu

The impasse on Jallikattu doesn’t seem like ending. Now the Supreme Court has declined to step into the matter and directed the petitioner to approach Madras High Court. Incidentally the Madras High Court had said just yesterday that it won’t interfere in the matter as the ruling for banning Jallikattu was passed by the Supreme Court. After getting banned by the Supreme Court in 2014, there were protests and public outpouring against the decision, but not quite close to what is being seen now. Not just are a ‘sea’ of protesters cropping up in various parts of Tamil Nadu including Chennai’s Marina Beach, the Jallikattu movement has also got a shot in the arm via various celebrities also showing their support.

So here’s a list of some of the most well known faces, fighting for Jallikattu:

Legendary music composer AR Rahman was the latest to support the movement after he announced his intention to fast tomorrow.

Just four days ago Rajanikanth had expressed his support for Jallikattu and reports suggest that he might even join a silent assembly organized by Tamil Nadu’s top actors in support of Jallikattu.

Dhanush, most well known for the song Kolaveri Di was one of the first celebrities who showed their support.

Actor Kamal Hassan has been one of the most vocal supporters of Jallikattu by speaking about its millenial old heritage. He also questioned the connection between animal rights and vegetarianism and even talked about his personal respect for bulls.

Even cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin tweeted out to laud the peaceful protests in favor of Jallikattu

Though he did not directly support it, Sehwag was all praise about the protests being conducted in a peaceful manner

Also chess wizard Viswanathan Anand called Jallikattu a cultural symbol which pointing out that the main point here wasn’t animal rights but was tradition and livelihood.
