Bengaluru: Actor Prakash Raj has lashed out at Mysore-Kodagu BJP MP Pratap Simha for making defamatory statements against him on social media.

While speaking to the media, Prakash Raj said that he has sent a legal notice to the BJP MP. He said comments made by Pratap Simha disturbed his personal life. He further said that he wants Simha to answer legally or else he would take criminal actions against him. The actor said, “I have sent a legal notice to Pratap Simha, as a citizen of this country for the way he has trolled me which has disturbed my personal life. I am asking him to answer legally & if he doesn’t, I will be taking criminal action against him.”

The actor has also launched a campaign on troll vandalism with hashtag # troll vandalism.

He termed Simha as an important head of troll vandalism and added:”Simha posted statements terming me as a villain in real life and claimed I was running behind a dancer when my wife was grieving the death of our five-year-son. He stated that I change my name and identity according to my convenience. These posts have deeply hurt me. I decided to slap a legal notice on him as there should be an end to such trolls,” Raj told reporters on Thursday.

“He should apologise in public for his posts. He should confess that he committed a mistake and remove posts from all his social media accounts,” he said.
