Written by Dhiwaharan Published on Jun 29, 2022 | 01:03 AM IST | 105
To actor Prithviraj Sukumaran who is currently busy promoting his upcoming film “Kaduva”, landed in Chennai and met the reporters of Tamil nadu to promote his film in the Tamil speaking state. While answering to the reporters, one of them referred to a year old tweet of the actor and asked him how he expects Tamil people to support his film. The tweet is about Prithviraj insisting on the decommission of Mullaperiyar dam. The tweet received widespread flak from the people of Tamil nadu as decommissioning the dam would prevent few districts of Tamil nadu getting water through the dam.

Answering to the reporter’s question, Prithviraj said that it is an interesting question but answering to it would completely change the context of the press meet. Prithviraj further said that it is a promotional event for “Kaduva” and it would be fine if the discussions made on the same.
On October 24, 2021, Prithviraj came up with a tweet in his official twitter handle, favoring the decommission of Mullaperiyar dam. A number of political personalities and other few celebrities from Malayalam film industry voiced out for the same. The “Mozhi” actor, in his tweet, said “Regardless of what the facts and findings are or will be, there is no reason or excuse for this 125 year old dam to exist as a functioning structure! It’s about time we put politics and economics aside and do what is right. 🙏”

Many online users who belong to Tamil nadu expressed their displeasure over the actor’s tweet about the issue. Check out some of their reactions below :
If Idukki district is annexed to Tamil Nadu, we Tamils will decide whether to build the Mulla Periyar Dam or not!
Why this vain difficulty for Malayalees! #MullaperiyarDam

Concentrate on your movies this is a unwanted issue for you. There are enough proves that #MullaiPeriyar dam is stronger than many dams in kerela. Stop spreading hatred on the issues you don’t know. #dramaqueen

If you are disregarding facts and findings, what you do is politics. There are dams which stay put for more than 300, 400 years as well.

You always had some Grudge against the Tamils and Tamilnadu, it’s exposed now. Such an irresponsible tweet. Never expected this from a leading Actor. Your intentions are to create fear among the Kerela people.
Ever heard of Kallanai Dam? #SaveMullaperiyarDam #AnnexIdukkiWithTN

Now, 7 months after posting the tweet, Prithviraj reached Chennai to promote his upcoming film “Kaduva”. In the press meet, a reporter asked “You recently posted a tweet regarding the Mullaperiyaar dam. At that time, many Tamil fans tweeted against you. In this situation, how are you expecting Tamil fans to support your Kaduva movie ??”
Replying to the question, Prithvi said “It’s really an interesting question. If I answer this question now, headline of this entire press meet will be about it. I came here to promote my Kaduva movie. So let’s talk about that alone”
