Bollywood has come out in support of Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati. And now Sanjay Leela Bhansali film finds support from actor Prakash Raj. The man who has not shied away from commenting on issues that landed him in bad books of many. Be it Gauri Lankesh murder case or then Kamal Haasan’s recent fight, the Wanted actor has been vocal about his opinions. In a recent post Prakash Raj addressed two issues that have made headlines and become national news. One, Padmavati controversy and the other IIFI controversy about Sexy Durga and Nude being ousted from the festival by the I&B ministry. Prakash Raj took to Twitter and wrote,
To whomsoever it may concern
One wants to cut a nose..one wants to behead an artist..
One wants to shoot an actor down… and the system wants to remove certain films from a film festival in spite of being selected by a jury
And you want us to believe that there are no acts of intolerance ..?
silencing voices.. ?terrorizing ..?…..#justasking

What he was doing when congress was threatening Madhur Bhandarkar for his film ‘Indu Sarkar’ ? was that not intolerance from congress ?. It shows the Hypocrisy of Prakash Raj .
Here is how people reacted to it:
A bjp leader and his guard were shot dead in noida…u didn't raise ur concern like u did for gauri lankesh…selective questioning?? #justasking

Did you ask the same question when fatwa was issued to Rahman, on Muslim yoga teacher, when Fatima of dangal fame, vocalist Noma Nazir, drummer Farah Deeba and guitarist Aneeka Khalid were threatened, why selective guts. Show some guts in those incidents as well.
