Prakash Raj today resigned from MAA primary membership. He contested the MAA elections as the president.
“I lost the elections because of the campaign that I am not Telugu person. They branded me as non-local. It was painful to hear such comments from the fraternity. Since my fellow actors don’t treat me as one of their own, I should not be a member of MAA. I am denouncing my primary membership,” he declared.
Prakash Raj, a Kannadiga, has acted in hundreds of movies and stays in Hyderabad. However, the rival panel campaigned against him saying he is not a Telugu actor.
He, however, will continue acting in Telugu films.
