Prakash Raj, the popular bad guy of many South Indian and Hindi films, is not one to mince words. Having a go at all, the veteran actor let the world know what he thinks about the recent incidents involving threats to Oscar winner AR Rahman and superstar Rajinikanth.
Responding to threats to superstar Rajinikanth and AR Rahman, National Award-winning actor Prakash Raj said: "The country is getting intolerant, ask them to go to hell."
A Muslim cleric in Mumbai has issued a fatwa against AR Rahman after he composed the music for Iranian film Muhammad: Messenger of God. He alleged that the title could humiliate the Prophet.
Hindu Munnani a fringe Hindu outfit and state BJP in Tamil Nadu had asked Rajinikanth not to do the role of Tipu Sultan citing his attack on Tamils.
Prakash Raj added: "You ban meat, you ban porn; don't voters have rights? The bubble will burst soon."
Rajinikanth has not responded to the Hindu outfit's diktat. His office said that the actor is busy with two films and he wouldn't want to respond to speculation.
However, on his Facebook page AR Rahman posted a strongly-worded letter, saying: "I did this in good faith. What if Allah were to ask me, I gave you faith talent and money. Why did you not do music for my Beloved Muhammad film?"
Prakash Raj was recently in news for adopting a village in the backward Mahabubnagar district of Telangana.
