"You should not allow them (anti-social elements) to bring disrepute to your movement and goodwill, besides the police who have been supportive of your protests," he said in a statement.
"I humbly request you to immediately end this protest," he added, urging that the assurance by the central and state governments of a permanent solution should be respected.
Similar appeals also came from another veteran star, Kamal Haasan, and RJ Balaji, a popular radio jockey.
Kamal Haasan criticised the crackdown on Jallikattu protesters, saying, "aggressive police action on students' passive resistance will not bear good results".
None can take away your rights. Pls. stay calm. The highest office in the country is watching & will talk in your favour soon. Maintain calm- Kamal Haasan (@ikamalhaasan) January 23, 2017
Thousands of protesters refused to leave as a large number of policemen arrived at the Marina Beach this morning.
My request to the police minister.Stop harrassing peacful protesters of TN and Marina.Let the CM offer solutions arrived upon @ the assembly- Kamal Haasan (@ikamalhaasan) January 23, 2017
RJ Balaji, a radio personality known for his public service and large fan following, tweeted a video in which he said in Tamil: "Please go home, urging all youngsters to leave Marina and not resort to stone pelting and violence."
Last week, Balaji came out in strong support of Jallikattu, a tradition that has been linked by many to Tamil pride.
