Will she lose her role in Rajinikanth Enthiran 2.0?

Amy Jackson may have bagged the coveted role opposite the legendary Rajinikanth in director Shankar's Enthiran 2.0, but she seems to have landed in trouble.

The pretty actress posted a tweet supporting PETA's campaign against Jallikattu, the traditional bull taming sport that is an integral part of the Pongal celebrations in Tamil Nadu .

'#NoJallikattu : Actors, cricketers sign @PetaIndia's plea against bullfights. Please show your support too!'

But Pongal is just a few weeks away and several political parties have been urging the government to lift the ban, imposed by the Supreme Court last year, on the centuries-old Jallikattu tradition. 

Her comment at this time seems to have triggered a huge uproar among some political outfits, who are now demanding her removal from Enthiran 2.0

Veeralakshmi, leader of the Tamilar Viduthalai Padai, has threatened to protest at the shooting spot and in front of Rajinikanth's house if their demands are not met.
