He said, “If Prakash Raj has a mindset of returning his awards then why did he accept them? . Prakash Raj is a great actor, But he supporting the Left parties. His thoughts are against people’s thoughts. My personal opinion is that if an actor threatens to give back the awards he has won then why did he take them?”.
Prakash Raj had earlier warned that if Modi does not take immediate steps to kill Gauri Lankesh, he will return to his national awards. Later Prakash Raj gave a clarity through a video that he is not a fool to return his awards. A lawyer from Uttar Pradesh filed a case against Prakash raj for criticising the Prime Minister calling him a great actor.
