THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Actor Prakash Raj has said artistes should resist any attempt to silence dissent.
Prakash Raj, who is here to participate in the ongoing 22nd International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK), said creative people need to stand united and work towards coexistence in these trying times.
“People like us should not deter and work for humanity and coexistence,” he said.
Referring to protests against films such as “Padmavati”, “S Durga” and “Nude”, the National Award-winning actor said any movement unleashed against a work of art was unjustified.
He said it was unfair to oppose films and give a political colour to dialogues from the movies.
