A police complaint has been lodged in the police station of Karnataka’s Bagalkot district against renowned actor Prakash Raj for a tweet he posted concerning the Chandrayaan-3 mission, sparking a fresh controversy.

“A complaint has been filed against actor Prakash Raj for his post on the Chandrayaan-3 mission, Police said. “Hindu organizations leaders filed a complaint against the actor in Banahatti police station of Bagalkote district and have demanded action,” the police added

The  actor on Sunday took to micro blogging site X, earlier known as Twitter, sharing a caricature of a man in a shirt and lungi pouring tea.

Sharing the picture, he wrote, “First view just arrived from Chandrayaan .. #VikramLander #justasking.”

Prakash Raj has been facing heavy backlash since then with people saying that the Chandrayaan-3 mission is linked to the country’s pride.

Amid the severe backlash, Prakash Raj chose to address the controversy by issuing a clarification on his social media platform. He defended his tweet, explaining that he was referring to a joke from the “Armstrong times” and was celebrating a local tea seller from Kerala. He challenged critics to understand the humor and grow up, suggesting that the joke was taken out of context.

Chandrayaan-3 mission was launched on July 14, 2023 via the GSLV Mark 3 (LVM 3) heavy-lift launch vehicle from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota at 2:35 PM.
