New Delhi: Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad who compared three Bollywood blockbuster movie collections to judge Indian economy, has withdrawn on Sunday. Using Twitter handle to clarify on his statement, Ravi Shankar Prasad said that his comment was taken out of context. His comment about three Bollywood movies making Rs. 120 crore in a single day, was "factually correct", he said.

My comments made yesterday in Mumbai about 3 films making Rs. 120 Cr in a single day -- the highest ever, was a factually correct statement. I had stated this as I was in Mumbai- the film capital of India," the minister tweeted.

"Entire video of my media interaction is available on my social media. Yet I regret to note that one part of my statement has been completely twisted out of context. Being a sensitive person I withdraw this comment," another of his tweets read.
