Actors shouldn't join politics only because they are popular: Prakash Raj

Actors shouldn't join politics only because they are popular: Prakash Raj

I don't like actors joining politics because they are actors & have fans.

Veteran actor, Prakash Raj seems to be angry over the trend of actors joining politics en masse, as leading actors of South Indian cinema, Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth and Pawan Kalyan are all set to try their luck in politics soon. He advised "they should come with clear perception of issues facing the country".

However, many netizens seem to not agree with Prakash Raj's opinion on actors joining politics. "But trolling makes you stronger, so I do not block trolls", he said. The National Award victor also clarified that he will not enter politics.

Read: The question really is: Are Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth qualified to enter politics? He told reporters at the Press Club that the political aspirants will have to demonstrate their abilities before the people choose them as their representatives. Please respect the fact that I'm a professional actor. "They have to demonstrate how much they understand our culture, the problems and how they will respond to it".

His statement comes at a time when there is vast speculation over several actors' political ambitions.

Hitting out at politicians, he further said, "In UP, we don't know whether he's a Chief Minister or the Poojari of a temple. I don't endorse them and their party just because I am disillusioned with other political parties". "Film actors becoming leaders is a disaster for my country", he added.

"I won't vote for them just because they are actors".

A prominent name in Tamil, Kannada and Telugu cinema, Raj received the National Award for his role in the Tamil film "Kanchivaram".
