Starting from his controversial comments on actor turned politician Pawan Kalyan, film critic Kathi Mahesh has always managed to be under the limelight of the media, regarding disputes over various issues. In the latest, Mahesh has ended up making offensive comments against Lord Ram and Ramayanam mythology, ultimately landing in an ultimatum of expulsion by the Hyderabad Police Department.
Under the freedom of expression, Mahesh has made foul comments on Lord Ram which triggered religious feelings of many Hindu scholars and devotees. One of them being Paripoornananda Swami has warned Mahesh to take back his words or would face legal consequences.
