What lies behind the dissent of Prakash Raj?

“In the last few months, the actor has spoken out on a range of issues, from the campaign against Padmavati to the gag on Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s S Durga at IFFI, Goa, from demonetisation to Hindutva politics in Karnataka and the pageant of hate from Rajasamund, Rajasthan. When Twitter accounts followed by the Prime Minister of India celebrated journalist Gauri Lankesh’s murder, Raj questioned Narendra Modi’s “chilling silence”. “I raise my voice as an artist. If creative people become cowards, we should realise that we will be making society cowardly,” he said in a speech at the International Film Festival of Kerala in December.

For his outspokenness, Raj has earned respect, abuse as well as criticism. “Yes, I should have asked [questions] earlier,” he admits. “Does that take away my right to ask now? There is a point when somebody snaps, when it comes from within… For me, it was Gauri [Lankesh, a close friend of the actor]…I am not answerable to others, I am answerable to my conscience. My conscience says, Prakash you can’t be silent,” he says, his baritone filling the hotel room on a balmy December night in Chennai.”
