Lucknow: Actor Prakash Raj, who recently courted controversy after criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has landed in legal trouble. A case has been registered against him on Wednesday in Luncknow.
According to reports, lawyer Sardar Parvinder Singh has filed a complaint against Prakash for his recent remarks against the prime minister.The case will be heard on October 7.
Prakash had slammed Narendra Modi for his silence over journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh’s murder. He was also disappointed with the government for not taking any action against those who were celebrating the death of Lankesh on social media.
Not just that, the actor also targeted Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, calling ‘Yogi and Modi’ bigger actors than him.
“Some people who are followed by our prime minister on Twitter are so brutal, and we have a PM who has closed his eyes to it. If you see videos today from Uttar Pradesh, you will be confused if he (Yogi Adityanath)is the chief minister or pujari(priest) of some temple. We have people doing such double roles. They have given me five national awards. I feel like giving it to them. These are bigger actors than me, ” said Prakash.
The national award winning actor also faced massive criticism on social media for his comments against the prime minister.
