Prayaga Martin’s show of arrogance in shooting set; social media turns their ire against the actress
Actress Prayaga Rose Martin is alleged to have treated a makeup man harshly and tried to slap him in front of the entire unit. The incident happened at the location of an upcoming movie when the director and cameraman had asked the makeup man to tone down Prayaga’s facial makeup a bit.
Apparently, the actress became infuriated when he approached her to tone down the makeup. She and her mother, who had accompanied her on the sets, were unhappy with lessening the makeup as they felt it will dull her face on screen.
When the make up man insisted, Prayaga raised against him and started scolding him in front of the whole unit. He had asked her not to raise her finger against him which further enraged the actress. She had apparently raised her hand to slap him before he caught hold. He was later forced to apologize in front of the whole unit.
Art director Girish Menon who had witnessed the incident in the location had written about it on his Facebook page which later went viral. Social media users have turned their ire against the actress for showing her arrogance. Industry insiders accuse that even senior actors treat makeup assistants and fellow unit members with respect but it is the younger generation of actors who mistreat their assistants.
Prayaga Martin made her debut as a lead actress through Tamil director Mysskin’s horror thriller Pisaasu. She has also acted in five Malayalam movies- Oru Murai Vanthu Parthaya, PaVa, Ore Mukham, Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan and Fukri. The actress is currently shooting for Dileep’s Ramaleela and PT Kunju Muhammed’s Vishwasapoorvam Mansoor.
