Director’s Caste Talk Irritates Fans

Young Rebel Star Prabhas enjoys a good fan base across all the sections. Recently, this ‘Baahubali’ actor attended the audio launch of Sumanth Ashwin and Rehana starrer ‘Chakkiligintha’. Prabhas was the main attraction at the audio event and his fans attended in huge numbers for this function. Director Maruti also attended the event and when he came on to the stage to speak, fans were shouting ‘Rebelstar Rebelstar’. 
Without any second thought, Maruti said, “Looks like all the belt (Caste) fans are here to cheer Prabhas”. This didn’t go well with the fans of Rebelstar. Maruthi is better known for his b-grade content movies and such words from a director like him is of no surprise, said a senior Prabhas fan. Filmmakers should be careful while talking at public events and they shouldn’t be talking about sensitive issues like caste and religion, said a popular producer.
