Actor Prakash Raj filed a defamation case Tuesday against BJP parliamentarian Pratap Simha, over comments the lawmaker made last year about his personal life.
Prakash Raj told reporters the “defamation and criminal intimidation” case was filed against Simha, and not his party.
“I have demanded a compensation of Rs 1 only,” he said.
On October 2, Simha made personal remarks on Prakash Raj’s posts on social media. He also commented on the actor’s wife, and his late son.
The actor sent Simha a legal notice in November. He said the MP was a serial offender, and demanded an unconditional apology.
But the Simha didn’t respond to the notice, leaving Prakash Raj with no other option than to go to court.
