Actor Prakash Raj has been a very outspoken person right from the beginning of his career irrespective of the forum and platform he is speaking on. And lately, Prakash Raj has been tweeting his thoughts on the current political situation, silence of government on few threatens and many more things. But many netizens have been trolling him for his thoughts which Prakash feels is bound to happen and doesn’t really bother him. “Not bold, I’m being honest! When I started my life, I wasn’t an actor, but then I got into the industry and found an identity as an actor and later ventured into other art forms. I have been a forthright person throughout my journey,” Prakash Raj was quoted as saying by DC.
Prakash Raj also adds that he has always been outspoken and people are getting to see the other side of him only because his views are now related to politics. “Now, because I am politically straight, people are coming to see the other side of me (smiles), but I find it to be a natural transition. At every point in time, something triggers your transformation and that’s exactly what happened to me. When you see the death of your dear ones, something affects you. Perhaps Gauri Lankesh’s death triggered this transition,” Prakash Raj added further.
After the horrendous murder of Bengaluru based journalist Gauri Lankesh, Prakash has been more vocal about the state of politics in India and has, time and again, said that he is worried about the silence of the government.
