Prakash Raj who is known to be a multilingual actor recently took to X to share a funny post about the landing of Chandrayaan-3 on moon. Sharing this image of a tea-seller, he wrote in the caption ‘BREAKING NEWS:- First picture coming from the Moon by #VikramLander Wowww #justasking’. Now, Prakash has found himself in trouble over this post as two complaints, including one to the governor, have been lodged against him in Karnataka. While one S.B. Gayakwad, said to be a Sangh parivar sympathiser, lodged a police complaint in Bagalkot district, one Pramod N from Shimoga sent an email complaint to the governor seeking action against the ‘Singham’ actor, stated reports. Prakash received a lot of criticism from a section of netizens who took his joke in bad light and accused him of berating ISRO and its scientists. Later, the 58-year-old actor also issued a clarification on the post that read, ‘Hate sees only Hate.. i was referring to a joke of #Armstrong times .. celebrating our kerala Chaiwala .. which Chaiwala did the TROLLS see ?? .. if you dont get a joke then the joke is on you .. GROW UP #justasking’. For the unversed, he was referring to a decades-old joke about how Neil Armstrong was greeted by a Malayali tea-seller when he first landed on the moon, hinting at the ubiquitous nature of Malayalis.
