Multiple National award winner Prakash Raj, who is one of the most popular character artistes in South, was recently in news for a wrong reason. The Telugu Film Directors' Association (TFDA) and the Producers's Association (TFPA) were considering on banning him from acting in Tollywood due to his indiscipline and unprofessional behaviour. The latest we hear is that he has sorted out all the issues with director Srinu Viatla and there will not be any ban on him.
The rumours about Prakash Raj's controversial behavior and banning him from Tollywood started doing rounds in the air after he was replaced by Sonu Sood in Mahesh Babu's Aagadu. Later, it was reported that a complaint was lodged against him with the TFDA and TFPA. It was speculated that he might be banned from the industry if the committee constituted to resolve the issue was not satisfied with his explanation.
Replying rumours, Prakash Raj had confirmed that he had creative differences with director Srinu Vaitla. He had said, "I was part of the film. I completed the scene and left after the shoot and it is also true that I have been replaced. Yes, there have been creative differences between the director and me."
Meanwhile, he had also made it clear that he did not have any issue with actor Mahesh Babu. The actor had added, "I respect Mahesh a lot and there's no issue between us. Same is the case with the assistant director; if he comes to me with a script tomorrow, we may work together."
In his explanation to the committee, Prakash Raj has reportedly given his side of story on what happened between him and Srinu Vaitla on the sets of the movie Aagadu. The committee, which is said to be contented with his answer, has resolved the issue between the actor and director amicably. So there will not be any ban on the actor.
