He further went on to say that he is very much against the ban on movies or bulls for that matter and mentioned that there is no point banning the sport rather there should be regulations done.

“Don’t come around with ban. Try and regulate it. More people die in automobile accidents than in Jallikattu. We don’t ban automobile driving or car racing sport. My film (‘Vishwaroopam’) was banned because some people claimed it was anti-Muslim, but it was not,” he said.
