Veteran actor Prakash Raj is well known for playing villainous roles in Bollywood films like Singham, Dabangg 2, Wanted, Mumbai Mirror, and Policegiri. He is also known for sharing his opinion without mincing words. He has now shared his view on calls for a boycott Pathaan and to see the film fail.
The National Award-winning actor recently attended a literature festival in Kerala as a guest wherein he spoke about netizens who were calling for a boycott of the film being only barking dogs. Other celebrities who were invited to speak at the festival were Kabir Bedi, Amitav Ghosh, and Sudha Murthy.
A video is going viral on social media wherein Prakash Raj was seen saying that the bigots who called for boycott Pathaan could not manage to run Narendra Modi’s biographical film, which was released in 2019, for 30 crores. He said, “They wanted to ban Pathaan. It’s going 700 crores. These idiots, who wanted to ban Pathaan, did not run Modi’s film for 30 crores. They are just barking, they don’t bite. Don’t worry. Sound pollution!”
