Manoj Prabhakar- not many know this name until yesterday. But this upcoming comedian from Tamilnadu suddenly became very popular. He became target for Mahesh Babu fans after he tried to crack some crude jokes on Mahesh Babu. Finally Movie artist Association (MAA) wrote a letter to Nadigar Sangam on this.
Manoj Prabhakar made several rude comments like, Mahesh Babu face doesn’t have any expressions, in Spyder movie, SJ Surya was giving many expressions while Mahesh Babu’s face was blank. He also made some sarcastic comments like, Mahesh Babu is a rock star and that means, his face is like a rock, that doesn’t have any expressions. He also made some senseless comments like Mahesh Babu is male version of Katrina Kaif.
Manoj Prabhakar comments did not go well with not only Mahesh Babu fans but also general Telugu audience. Many trolled the upcoming comedian through social platforms and some of them asked him to compare the acting of Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu’s performance with Tamil superstar Vijay performance in the movie Pokiri and have some fact check. After facing severe criticism from Telugu audience, Manoj Prabhakar apologized on Facebook for his act. He requested the trollers to stop the abuse and stop this issue here.
Meanwhile, Movie Artist Association (MAA) sent a letter to Nadigar Sangam on this and requested to take action on Manoj Prabhakar. It should be appreciated that MAA has, at least now, taken some sort of action to condemn vicious comments on Mahesh Babu, one of the members of movie artist Association. MAA responding on this immediately is appreciated by Telugu people.
However some people question, why MAA could not give similar ‘quick’ response when “some people” targeted Pawan Kalyan , who is also member of movie artist Association. When some media channels and some people targeted Pawan Kalyan and went on to make personal comments targeting him and his family members, MAA was silent for many days. It need not condemn political comments but at least when they are making personal comments, MAA could have lent it’s support to PK and gave some sort of official statement, but it didn’t do. Only after things went out of control, MAA tried to respond on that.
Hopefully, at least now onward, MAA will continue to take some active decisions when such things happen instead of keeping mum like in the past.
