Actors becoming leaders is a disaster for my country,’ says Prakash Raj

The trend of intolerance, he said, has become stronger lately. "You have passed a cow slaughter act, yes, but you kill someone just o n suspicion?" Just because you have doubts, you kill somebody. Are you a representative of this country? Mr Raj suggested that there is a "silent majority" of people who have realised what he called their "mistake" in voting for the BJP. They should come up with a clear focus on issues facing the country and win the trust of the people.

However, many netizens seem to not agree with Prakash Raj's opinion on actors joining politics.
