After media reported widely about his ‘Award Waspi’ (returning the national awards), actor Prakash Raj clarified that he never said he would return awards. “National Awards were given for my word work and my artistic skills in acting. Why would I give them back? I am not a fool. I was hurt over PM’s silence on the killing of Gauri Lankesh. My comments were about PM’s silence, I didn’t mean to return awards,” he clarified.
 
His comments about ‘Award Wapsi’ has become hot topic on social media. Some supported his comments, while others criticized that he is the latest artist or intellectual turning anti-BJP.
