A few days after the release of his latest Malayalam film “Oozham” which has recived mixed reviews, Malayalam actor Prithviraj took to Facebook to issue a word of caution to his fans.
More than the status update itself, what seem to have struck a chord with his fans is the fact that the actor chose to write it in Malayalam.
Contrary to the actor’s status updates that seem to have left his fans confused many a time, the latest one asking his fans to refrain from mudslinging other actors as a means to support him is a welcome change.
It was not long ago that Prithviraj posted an update partially in Malayalam that had elated his fans and critics alike.
Now the actor has decided to frame an entire status update in Malayalam.
In his recent update, Prithviraj has cautioned his fans not to defame other actors or their films as a means to support him.
Thanking his fans for the unconditional support over the years, he said, “I strongly believe that the success of my films are not dependent on the success or the lack of it, of other films,” the actor wrote in Malayalam.
He said that the kind of comments on social media by his fans has caused him pain.
“When you degrade other films and actors, you are not encouraging me, but causing me pain and embarrassment,” he wrote.
Saying that people do have the right to criticize, he maintained that such criticisms should be done in a civilized manner.
How often have we wondered why fans always at loggerheads, even as the stars themselves publicly declare their cordial relations with fellow actors?
In an extreme case, a fan of popular Tollywood actor Jnr NTR killed a Pawan Kalyan fan in August. Appalled, both the actors had come down heavily on the incident.
