The National Award-winning actor Prakash Raj said the Internet trolls have been hitting at the thought process of the social media users since the last three years and dubbed it as a dangerous trend.
Prakash Raj “Weren’t they removed from being ambassadors to certain things? Weren’t some of their commercials stopped? They are stopping my commercials too. But I will not ask you why you are hitting me. I will not tell you the way you are hitting me is hurting me because that will make you stronger,” Raj said.

Raj also referred to BJP MP Pratap Simha’s comments against him after he criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his “silence” on those “celebrating” the killing of journalist Gauri Lankesh here in September.
Later, Raj took to Twitter to slam a section of the press for misquoting him. “This is what I said… Actors should not come into politics only because they are popular. It’s a disaster. They should come with a clear perception of the issues facing the country and win the trust of the people. And we should not vote as fans, but as responsible citizens,” he posted.
