Malayalam actor and social media superstar Santhosh Pandit strongly reacted to choreographer Prasanna Sujit's racist comments on him. The incident happened during the recent episode of a dance reality show on a popular Malayalam channel. During the show, celebrity guest of the show actress Prayaga Martin was given a task to identify Santhosh Pandit based on the hints she receives from the celebrity judges including Prasanna Sujit, Neerav Bavlecha along with actress Priyamani. When Prayaga asked whether the person is handsome, Prasanna answered with a shocking "NO".

However things didn't go too well for Prasanna as a huge section of audience trolled the choreographer for his racist comments on Santhosh Pandit. And to make more trouble for Prasanna, Santhosh Pandit himself reacted through a fitting reply on his Facebook page.

Santhosh Pandit posted;

Dear 'famous' Prasanna son, I was not born as handsome and that's not my mistake. Every people can't become 'Hrithik Roshan' like you. But at the end we are all just named as dead bodies. Anyways, with your comments on me, now Kerala people will come to know who is Prasanna? That's a credit for you! This 'racism' is not gonna end soon. Just think, black color always be used as bad luck and white color always stands for good things, for eg - marriage. Criminals will be highlighted under blacklist and not in white list because black is always bad. In films, the complexion of male protagonists will be white color and while villains are always in black. What a Pity ?

Santhosh Pandit went on to share former Zimbabwean revolutionary and politician's quotes on racism on his Facebook page.

"Racism will never end as long as white cars are still using black tyres. Racism will never end if people still use black to symbolise bad luck and white for peace. Racism will never end if people still wear white clothes to weddings and black clothes to funerals.
Racism will never end as long as those who don't pay their bills are blacklisted not white listed. Even when playing snooker, you haven't won until you've sunk the black ball, and the white ball must remain on the table! But I don't care, as long as I'm still using white toilet paper to wipe my black ass, I'm happy" by Robert Mugabe", Santhosh Pandit shared on FB.
