Mukhbir, the newest online series by Prakash Raj, debuted on Zee5 last Friday

Chandrayaan-3 has two days till it arrives at its final destination, the moon. The Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan 3 is scheduled to make a gentle landing on the moon’s south pole on August 23. Some people interpreted this accomplishment differently. On Sunday, veteran actor Prakash Raj criticized India’s Moon Mission, prompting a backlash on social media.

Sharing the picture, he wrote in his regional language which read, “First view just arrived from Chandrayaan .. #VikramLander #justasking.” Prakash Raj’s remark did not go down well with Twitter users, who slammed the actor.

One of the users wrote, “South’s actor Prakash Raj is making a dirty joke of South’s scientist K Sivan wearing a lungi and the country’s achievement Chandrayaan 3. How you people of South can tolerate this???”

Another tweeted, “What a shame u have become for just nothing . May god bless you with some wisdom sir.”
