Prakash Raj usually keeps his cool and doesn’t pour out his emotions unless he is provoked beyond acceptable limits. The actor, who is also the producer of the upcoming Tamil-Telugu bilingual film Gouravam, displayed how he could look in one of his bad moods at the meet-the-press event held in connection with the film’s impending release.
Gouravam is reportedly based on ‘honour killings’, a practice followed in certain Districts of Southern Tamil Nadu and Andra where the families of boys and girls who are in love with each other get killed by members of their own families in order to protect, maintain and preserve the ‘family honour’ and ‘dignity’. Already, Kongu Vellalar Peravai has registered its opposition to the film’s script and said it feared communal disturbance if the film is allowed to release in theatres.
Radha Mohan returns to Prakashraj’s fold after Payanam. Unconfirmed reports also say that the script of Gouravam is based on the Dharmapuri riots which shook the State’s conscience. Scribes asked Prakash Raj about the opposition to the film by Vellalar Peravai. Prakash Raj shot back in his inimitable style.
“I don’t know why a big deal is made out about the script…I have sincerely made a film criticizing a social malpractice which ought to be removed from the society. Some people are claiming they are practicing and are objecting shamelessly to me showing the wrong practice in the film. Come what may, I won’t cut even a single frame from the film’s final version,” thundered Prakashraj.
Will the film controversy extends as its head for release next week.
