Bengaluru: Actor-filmmaker Prakash Raj on Sunday said actors should not take to politics only because they are popular and said fans should vote not as fans but as responsible citizens.

Prakash tweeted: "Actors should not come into politics only because they are popular. It is a disaster. "They should come with a clear perception of the issues facing the country and win the trust of the people. And we should not vote as fans, but as responsible citizens."
