Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai got emotional after watching the Kannada movie ‘777 Charlie’, which celebrates the bond between a man and his dog. The Chief Minister could be seen wiping his tears as he emerged from the theatre on Monday night.
The movie reminded Bommai of ‘Sunny’, his family pet dog who passed away some time ago. “The love between a man and a dog is the best example of pure and unconditional love,” Bommai said. The Chief Minister was full of praise for the movie’s protagonist Rakshit Shetty and the makers of the film.

The movie effectively portrayed the sensitive and emotional relationship between a man and a dog, he said. Expressing his compassion for street dogs, Bommai said that he would discuss with experts to launch an initiative to take care of stray dogs.
“There is a proposal to formulate a special programme to encourage dog trainers. We should encourage the adoption of stray dogs. Stray dogs and other animals should be protected,” he said.
