Full Story of the Head Bush Controversy…
Head Bush Controversy: Netizens are talking about a particular scene in the film Head Bush where Veeragase artists are being beaten up by the protagonist who is Jayaraj played by Dhananhjaya in this case but the catch here is that those artists are seen wearing shoes.
This scene has also been called out as an unwarranted showcase of the Karaga festival. Representatives of Karaga Utsava Samithi said that they would file a complaint with the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce over this or demand to cut some scenes and re-release the movie.

This Leftard Dhananjaya should recall what we did to Urduwood biggies like Amar Khan for demeaning our traditions. #BoycottHeadBush

Daali Dhananjay who plays Jayaraj has said that he is not beating up the Veeragase artists but rather those goons who have disguised themselves as the artists, hence are wearing shoes. The shoes act as an effective hint for the protagonist that it is not the real artists but the goons who are there to attack him, he said. He also added that he is a devotee of Veerabhadra Swamy ensured that there was no element of insult to Veeragase in the movie.
In favor of Daali
A considerable number of people have supported Dhanajaya and said that it is a purposeful attempt to defame him and his progressive views. A number of Twitter handles are tweeting with #WeStandWithDhananjaya.

As a minister for kannada and culture he never supported protecting #Tulu or #kodava langauges, never spoke a word on #HindiImposition. As a political agenda now writing unwanted views on #HeadBush #WeStandWithDhananjay #Dhananjay https://t.co/vxccPdBc2B

Let's look at it like a film & not as a purported insult to any art form
You can't expect these mistakes from @Dhananjayaka
It wont be wrong to say that his political correctness has put him in trouble#WeStandWithDhananjay #Headbushcontroversy #HeadBush

The role of Agni Sreedhar
Agni Sreedhar on whose book ‘Dadagiriya Dinagalu’ or ‘My Days in Underworld’ the film is based, came in support of Dhananjaya and said that he should be held accountable for this and not Dhananjaya. He called these allegations outrageous and those who alleged them as dirty fellows. The film Head Bush has gotten mixed reviews and still runs well in the theatres.
