Prakash Raj Hits Out At Trolls, Tweets ‘I Will Continue To Question’

Amidst the Mersal row and attempts of the BJP to censor scenes critical of it, Prakash Raj has reasserted his right to dissent, via a tweet.

The actor posted:

In his message, the actor calls out those who abuse him on Twitter and other social networking platforms, and says that their behaviour only strengthens his resolve to question the wrongs.


As Silverscreen earlier reported, Prakash Raj had expressed his disappointment over the Prime Minister’s silence in the Gauri Lankesh killing case, and claimed that Modi was a better actor than he was. He had said he was considering returning his national awards. The statement was misreported and quoted out of context by many. A case was also registered against the actor for his statements.

His tweet, therefore, comes at a time when actors and actresses are being scrutinised and trolled severely for their statements, (with women celebrities bearing the brunt of abusive, sexist, violent trolling) and many asking if the cinema and other arts do not have the right to express their opinion.
