Rediff has an interview with Prithviraj in which he asks “What have I done to deserve this”. By that he means the nasty comments created by Malayalis on him and his family. It seems that has reached a peak on the Internet.
I don’t know. I think the vehement attacks started happening much after that. This, I think, has started in the last two months and it seems well organised. I have nothing to say to them. It is very tempting to go and pursue a film career in another language.I am an actor but also a human being. At the end of the day, I live my life, I have my family and my privacy. It wouldn’t have affected me if I had actually done something wrong — at least I don’t think I’ve done anything wrong.
Eleven years in films is a long time. You start thinking that if this is what your 11 years have come to, it’s not worth it. But then, had this so-called character assassination been for professional reasons then Indian Rupee would not have done well.
So why is there such organized hatred of Prithviraj? Is it because he is opinionated? Or it is because of the insecurity of physically challenged Charlie Chaplins of Malayalam industry? Or is it simply the Jagathi Sreekumar mentality of Malayalis?
