5 INTERESTING UNKNOWN FACTS:

1. He got his name “Prakash Raj” from director K Balachander.

2. His son Sidhu was just 5 years old when he died after falling from a table while flying a kite

3. Tamil actress Geetha helped him in his struggling days by introducing him with Balachander, after which he took him in “Duet.”

4. He adopted the Mahabubnagar district of Telangana for its development.

5. He hosted the Season 2 of the Tamil version of Kaun Banega Crorepati called “Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi.”

5 FAMOUS QUOTES:

1. The person who supports killing, cannot be a Hindu

2. Weren`t you supposed to sweep with your VIKAAS? What happened to 150+..?.

3. When you can call me anti-Hindu, I have every right to say you are not Hindu

4. Our country has bigger issues than Pakistan, religion, caste, supporting fringe groups that threaten... and the ego of settling personal scores. There are genuine rural issues

5. I sent a legal notice not because he represents a party, but because he trolled. But today people who are voted are shamelessly trolling. If he does not answer legally I will be taking action. This is not against any party.

5 MOST POPULAR DIALOGUES:

1. Bada khiladi hai na tu ... toh khel bhi bada hi hoga tere saath - Dabangg 2

2. Mere saath kuch bhi karneka ... mera ego hurt nahi karneka - Singham

3. Minister log mere peeche aur police log mere jeb mein rehte hain - Singham

4. Waqt ka pata nahi chalta hai apno ke saath ... lekin apno ka pata chal jaata hai waqt ke saath - Entertainment

5. Sur Mohammed Rafi ka hai ki nahi ... power Muhammad Ali ka hai - Policegiri

CONTROVERSIES:

1. Due to the conspiracy of many fellow actors and filmmakers, he has been banned by the Telugu film industry 6 times.

2. His naked appearance for a scene in his film "Ongole Gitta" caused a controversy.                                       

3. In 2017, at the inauguration of the 11th State meet of the Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI), Prakash Raj targeted PM Narendra Modi on his stand after the gruesome murder of gutsy journalist Gauri Lankesh in Bengaluru, and said, "“Who killed my dear friend Gauri is not as important to me today as who has been celebrating her death. There may not be proof as to who killed Gauri but we can see who is celebrating it and from this, we can form an idea of who could have killed her. The underlying cruelty in all of this is apparent to many people. Many of those celebrating Gauri’s death are persons followed by the Prime Minister on social media. The PM has been absolutely silent about these people."
