Chennai: It might be unusual to see a mainstream director or a film star in India publicly admit to having an addiction. The director of KGF, Prashanth Neel, who has been promoting his big budget entertainer KGF: Chapter 2, seems to have spilled the beans on one of his older afflictions, in this case, a drinking problem.
During a recent interaction, Prashanth urged the interviewer on a witty note, “I reveal this with one condition, please promise me that you are not going to chop away this part of my interview.”
“Yes, I had a tendency to rely on intoxicants before penning down my stories. If the stories affect me as much even in a state of inebriation, then I conclude that this particular scene has what it takes”, Prashanth reveals.
