What’s the truth?
When we started our analysis with the relevant keyword search on Google we found an article from India Today dated 19 January.
According to the article, “Prabhas is basking in the success of his recently released film, ‘Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire’. Prabhas has been in the news for the past few days after reports of him donating Rs 50 crore to Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir went viral. Further, it was speculated that the actor had come forward to cover the food expenses on the inaugural day, January 22.”
IndiaToday.in exclusively spoke to Prabhas’ team members to know the truth behind these claims. The source rubbished the rumors and called it “fake news”.
The article added, “It’s also unclear if Prabhas received an invitation to the consecration ceremony of the Ram Mandir.”
This information makes it clear that the circulating rumors regarding actor Prabhas’s donation are untrue.
In summary, the widely shared rumors that actor Prabhas donated 50 crores to build the Ram Temple are untrue, and the actor’s team has labeled them as fake news.
