OMG! Prakash Raj opens up about how the pandemic put a stop to industry mafias, giving way to better content

Mumbai (Maharashtra): Prakash Raj is not only known for his brilliant performances but for his outspoken nature where he does not fear speaking his mind. Previously, the actor was trolled on Twitter for supporting Shah Rukh Khan and was even called “female Swara Bhasker”. Looking back at the trolls, Prakash stated that he feels honoured to be called so. Now, while promoting his upcoming OTT series, Mukhbir, the Singham actor revealed about “industry mafias” and how he feels OTT has opened new doors for him.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Prakash said he uses the term mafias now and then and has a good reason to term certain people that way. “Cinema is a language, the most recent human language. It was like a river and it flowed but people stopped it. They put conditions on it that you should show it only in theatres and began thinking writing was only about two-and-a-half hour stories. Everybody had been stopping things like you can’t release it on TV first etc. But once the pandemic stopped this mafia, people had to go and this content came out,” he said.

He further revealed that the web space had opened doors for him regarding the content of choice. He admitted that he does not have to take up “certain kinds of films” that he previously took for the money it provided. He said, “That’s the beauty of this medium. Earlier, I had to do certain loud films. I had to do it because there is a certain set of audience for that. My stardom is because of that. But now I don’t have to worry about it because the number of audiences is more now.”
