The actor was responding to a question about his new web series, Thiravam, being leaked on the internet. Prasanna’s sarcasm hung thick in the air during the interview that was conducted by Galatta Tamil.

Thiravam sees Prasanna don the role of a scientist.

This eight-episode web series is currently streaming on OTT platform Zee5.
