Prakash Raj in real-life drama
MAA (Movie Artists Association) has banned Prakash Raj for six months for not reporting to the sets of Murari shooting and thereby burning a hole into the pocket of the producer. Prakash Raj protested to the ban by launching a fast-unto-death on the morning of 7th May. Industry collegues like SV Krishna Reddy, Achi Reddy, Sravanthi Ravi Kishore, Bellamkonda Suresh, Pawan Kalyan, and Mahesh Babu etc turned up to show their solidarity to him. Then the MAA president Nag, who arrived from New Zealand, requested Prakash Raj to stop the protest to which Prakash Raj obliged. MAA will meet on 15th of May to take another resolution on Prakash Raj.
