Speculations & Online Discussions

The shocking case involving a South Indian cinema superstar has led to online discussions and speculations about the case and events leading up to it.

Bollywood filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma also chipped in on the "unavoidable side effect of star worship syndrome" in a post on the social media site X (formerly known as Twitter).

"A star using one die-hard fan to kill another die-hard fan who was interfering in his personal life is a fit example of the bizarreness of the star worship syndrome ..Fans wanting to order how their stars should run their lives is an unavoidable side effect of the same syndrome," Verma wrote.

A native of Chitradurga, Renukaswamy's body was found on June 9. Police investigation began after Renukaswamy’s body was discovered near Sumannahalli Bridge in Bengaluru.

Renukaswamy had allegedly made derogatory social media posts about Darshan's close friend and actress, Pavitra Gowda. He was reportedly asked to come near a Mysuru farmhouse owned by Darshan, where the accused allegedly tortured him for hours and murdered him before dumping his body in a drain in Bengaluru's Kamakshipalya region.

Further investigation led to the arrest of 11 suspects, and based on their statements, Darshan and Pavithra were taken into custody. All 13 have been sent to six-day police custody by a Bengaluru Magistrate court on June 11 in relation to the murder case.
