Actor-Director Prakash Raj is facing criticism after he walked out during an interview with a TV channel after he was asked a question related to the Cauvery water issue between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
The video of the actor expressing his anger has now gone viral.
The interview was in fact for his upcoming movie Idolle Ramayana. When Prakash Raj was asked about his views on the ongoing Cauvery row, the actor lost his temper and criticized the TV channel for unnecessarily dragging him into a controversial issue.
“I am here to talk about my film. It is a political issue and not a minor problem like you assume. It’s not just about water and don’t drag me into such issue,” Prakash Raj said during the interview.
He told the anchor that she should not be asking such questions as it is not the right time.
The actor asked the cameraman to record what he was saying and said, “Please be responsible and don’t try to create controversy.”
He stormed off the interview before telling the anchor that they should not approach him for interviews in future.
Prakash Raj is preparing for the release of Idolle Ramayana, which has Priyamani in the female lead. The actor himself has directed the film, which has Ilaiyaraja’s music.- CINEWS
