Jayaram, the actor who received harsh criticisms from Prathap Pothen recently, states that actor-filmmaker doesn't deserve a reply. The actor was talking in a recent interview given to SBS Malayalam Radio, Australia.
The actor refused to comment on the issue and stated that he is not interested to get involved in such controversies. Jayaram also added that such topics are not meant to be discussed; as it will only increase the intensity of the issue.
Prathap Pothen had recently bashed Jayaram through his official Facebook page and abused him calling racist moron and uncouth. Prathap's post was a great shock for the film industry and media.
He hadn't mentioned Jayaram's name in the post, but has clearly stated that the person whom he is talking about is a mimicry artist turned actor, who is also a Padma Shree holder.
Later, Prathap made another post, in which he clearly mentioned the names of Jayaram and his son Kalidas. He has also stated that he made such posts, due to Jayaram's disgusting behaviour, which hurt him a lot.
According to Prathap, he had recently approached Jayaram, to cast Kalidas in his upcoming directorial venture. But the actor rejected the offer stating that his son is not interested in working with old filmmakers.
