Prakash Raj, the popular bad guy of many South Indian and Hindi films, is not one to mince words. Having a go at all, the veteran actor let the world know what he thinks about the recent incidents involving threats to Oscar winner AR Rahman and superstar Rajinikanth.

Reacting sharply to the fatwa against Rahman and threat to Rajinikanth, the actor said: "The country is getting intolerant, ask them to go to hell," NDTV reported.

Last week, Mumbai-based Reza Academy had issued a fatwa against Rahman for composing music of Iranian film Muhammad, which is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Majid Majidi. On Monday, several right-wing leaders in Tamil Nadu, including one from Hindu Munnani, asked Rajini not to work in a proposed film on Tipu Sultan.

Prakash Raj added: "You ban meat, you ban porn; don't voters have rights? The bubble will burst soon."

While the actor hasn't spoken on the issue, Rahman gave a fitting reply on his Facebook page saying, "My decision to compose the music for this film was made in good faith and with no intention of causing offence."

Prakash Raj was recently in news for adopting a village in the backward Mahabubnagar district of Telangana.
