Tamil actor and producer Siddharth's latest film 'Chithha', a bilingual thriller, has faced a lot of trouble in Bengaluru due to the ongoing Cauvery water dispute between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. The actor, who had planned to promote his film in the city, was forced to leave a press conference by a pro-Kannada group that protested against his presence and the release of his film.

The actor also incurred a huge loss as he had to cancel the special screenings of his film for the students and the Kannada film industry. Siddharth opened up about the incident on Instagram live. The individual in question was disappointed and saddened by the recent events and was keen to clarify that he had no connection to the Cauvery issue. He emphasized that his film was a heartwarming story about the unbreakable bond between a girl and her uncle, devoid of any political or water-related overtones.

He expressed his gratitude for the unwavering support and love he had received from the audience and expressed his hope for an amicable resolution to the current conflict. The actor also said that his film was receiving a good response from the critics and the audience in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, where it was released on September 28.

He thanked his fans for their appreciation and urged them to watch the film in theatres. He also praised his co-stars Nimisha Sajayan and Sahasra, who played the roles of his love interest and niece respectively. He said that they had given brilliant performances and that he was proud to work with them.

'Chithha' is directed by S.U.Arunkumar, who has previously helmed films like 'Pannaiyarum Padminiyum', 'Sethupathi'. The film is produced by Siddharth under his banner Etaki Entertainment. The film has music by Dhibu Ninan Thomas, and the background score was composed by Vishal Chandrasekhar, cinematography by Balaji Subramanyam and editing by  Suresh A. Prasad. The film is expected to be released in other languages soon.
