Tamil hip hop duo Adhithya Ramachandran Venkatapathy (Aadi) and Jeeva R, widely known as Hip Hop Tamizha has released music single titled ‘Takkaru Takkaru’. This Short film and Music video is to campaign Jallikattu to be legalized. The video is all about how the bulls are considered to be like sons, and about how banning the sport can deeply impact the local business, and increase the business for foreign breeders instead. There are also depicts to how much the sport is an integral part of Tamil culture.
But opposing all this Bhuvaneshwari Gupta, associate manager of PETA has a fitting reply to the music duo. During an interview with popular news daily She said, ‘It is a dangerous sport that took lives of many innocent bulls. Jallikattu has caused injuries and deaths of hundreds of human participants, and even some spectators. Hip Hop Tamizha is better off sticking to just making music, because factual accuracy is not their strong point. Respecting bulls is true Tamil culture, not inflicting pain on them and making them suffer.’
She even pointed out that the same video shows how Bulls are being pulled with ropes painfully pierced through their noses, and a scene with a terrified bull forced into a crowd.
