Prithviraj tells fan not resort to such gimmicks but to dream big and work hard
Recently many actors such as Nivin Pauly and Dulquer Salmaan have taken to social media to make a statement that they are not on Clubhouse, the audio only app. Fake accounts were being made in the name of these celebrities. But it was Prithviraj Sukumaran who not only made the statement but also exposed the person who was behind the fake identity. Prithviraj Fans association have taken it up seriously and Sooraj Nair has been on the receiving end for impersonating the star. Now the actor himself has come forward with another statement saying that he doesn’t condone online abuse and that he understands that it was a harmless joke. He also told Sooraj Nair that if he is interested in Mimicry and Cinema, he should dream big and work hard.
Here is what Prithviraj wrote:
It’s alright. I understand that it was all meant to be a harmless joke. But I hope by now you’ve realised that something like this could have very serious repercussions. At one point, I believe more than 2500 people were listening in to you and that a good majority of them thought it was me speaking. I had repeated calls and messages from many people in and outside the industry, and it was imperative that I put an immediate stop to it. I’m glad you admit that it was a mistake. Mimicry is a wonderful art form and I’m sure you know many of Malayalam cinema’s all time greats have found their way into the industry from the world of mimicry. Dream big, work hard and never stop learning. I hope you have an illustrious career ahead and wish you the very best.
PS: To all my well wishers and others, I DO NOT condone online abuse. So please stop it. And once again..I’M NOT ON CLUBHOUSE.”
