Blocks actor’s account for violating guidelines
Fans of Kantara will easily remember the character of forest officer ‘Muralidhar’ essayed by Kishore Kumar from the film. Although he appears to be at loggerheads with the protagonist ’Siva' (Rishab Shetty), their objective is essentially the same which is to protect the forest dwellers.
Kishore is quite active on social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram on which he keeps commenting about cinema as well as social issues. However, Kishore was in for a rude shock when his Twitter account was blocked for violating guidelines. Apparently, no reason was given for the same.
Recently, Kishore had opposed the takeover of the prominent media house ‘NDTV’ by the ‘Adani Group’. Also, when a person who insulted the Kantara deity died some time ago, netizens attributed it to the wrath of the deity, Kishore had said, “God or ghost is merely our belief. They exist if we believe they do and vice-versa. There’s always a law to punish the wrong doers. Everyone is entitled to their belief. Please do not believe in superstition.”
Now, netizens are speculating whether his Twitter account suspension has anything to do with some of the comments made by Kishore in the past.
