The award-winning sensational south ‘villain’ has been unstoppable lately. Recently, on the first anniversary of demonetisation, he tweeted to describe the move as “the biggest blunder of our time”. He added, “While the rich found ways to convert their black money into shiny new notes, this disruptive impact made millions suffer helplessly and the unorganised sector workers went for spin.”Earlier in October the actor questioned PM Modi’s silence on the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh in Bengaluru. “Gauri’s killers may not have been caught yet, but what is more distressing is those who celebrated her death. We may not be able to see Gauri’s killers, but we can see those who have spewed vitriol... People, who our Prime Minister follows, are also among them. We have a Prime Minister who turns a blind eye to this,” he said at an event.
