Dhanush rejects association with PETA, gives his support to Jallikattu

Chennai: Popular actor Dhanush on Saturday said he endorses the ancient bull taming sport Jallikattu.

"Happy maattu Pongal. Also, I never made any comments regarding Jallikattu. I support Jallikattu. The news that`s going on is a rumour. Thank you," tweeted Dhanush, who is megastar Rajinikanth`s son-in-law.

Dhanush clarified that he is not associated with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), an animal rights organisation which is against Jallikattu.

"I'm not a brand ambassador of Peta. I was only awarded by them once for being a vegetarian," he posted.

The controversial sport is being opposed by animal rights activists.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court declined to permit Jallikattu, in which a bull vaulter is expected to hang on to the bull`s hump for a stipulated distance or hold on to the hump for a minimum of three jumps made by the bull. Many young men die or get injured in the process.
