Prakash Raj Lashes Out At BJP MLA Who Insulted The Actor
Prakash Raj has said that he will take BJP MLA Pratap Simha to the court if he doesn’t respond to his legal notice that was sent to him for his comments about the actor. The actor last month criticised Narendra Modi for his “silence” on those “celebrating” Kannada journalist Gauri Lankesh’s killing.
Simha, a former Karnataka journalist who now heads the BJP’s Yuva Morcha in the state, had reportedly in tweets and Facebook posts said that the actor was busy chasing a dancer when his son, Sidhu, died.
I have sent a legal notice to Mr. Pratap Simha (BJP Mysuru MP), as a citizen of this country for the way he has trolled me which has disturbed my personal life. I am asking him to answer legally & if he doesn’t, I will be taking criminal action against him: Actor Prakash Raj pic.twitter.com/wh5sCW1kuE

Kamal Haasan Conveys His Condolence To Producer Ashok Kumar’s Family
Kamal Haasan has said that the prevalence of usury affects various sections including farmers and the cinema industry. The actor was responding to the alleged suicide of a Tamil film producer, Ashok Kumar, who in his suicide note, accused a Madurai-based financier Anbu Chezhian of harassing him for years.
“Law and the cinema industry should end the atrocities of usury which affects those ranging from farmers to cinema professionals believed to be rich,” the actor said in a tweet. He further said that such an “untimely death” of Ashok Kumar should not recur.
கந்துவட்டிக் கொடுமை எழை விவசாயி முதல் பணக்காரர்கள் என நம்பப்படும் சினிமாக்காரர் வரை ஆட்டிப்படைப்பதை சட்டமும் சினிமாத்துறையும் தடுத்தாக வேண்டும். திரு. அசோக்குமாரின் அகாலமரணம் போல் இனி நிகழவிடக்கூடாது. குடும்பத்தார்க்கும் நட்புக்கும் கலைத்துறையின் அனுதாபங்கள்.
