Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake had commented on the Indian film Kaala.


Mr Ramanayake, who is also an actor, criticized Indian director Pa. Ranjit and his movie Kaala which features Superstar Rajinikanth.


“Please don’t ruin your career by acting in Ranjit’s films, I am telling you this as a fan of yours. I also have the right to comment as a fan,” Ramanayake said in a recent statement.


The story of the movie is about a politician, who promises to clean up India and grabs lands belonging to people once he came to power.


“This concept is good but a superstar such as Rajinikanth should not act in such a movie,” Ramanayake said.


“If a Sri Lankan watches this movie he would think it is about former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa,” Ramanayake added.  A video in which Ramanayake criticizing the movie maker and commenting on the superstar has been aired by Indian media. 


Asked whether Rajinikanth or Director Ranjit had responded to his comments, Mr Ramanayake said both had not responded yet.
