Former Machachari actor Almasi is in the headlines yet a gain after posting an expected photo. The young actor has stunned fans after sharing a “religious” photo on Instagram which some believed was satanic.

The photo, which has a shirtless Almasi holding his hands together to form a triangle-like shape normally used by Illuminati, scared most of his fans on the platform.

The actor announced a few months ago that he’s been practicing Vaishnavism (Vaishnava dharma). Vaishnavism is the branch of Hinduism in which Vishnu or one of his incarnations (usually Krishna or Rama) is worshipped as the supreme God.

“As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones” BG 2.22. Spoken by Krsna to Arjuna at the Battlefield of Kurukshetra before the War. Part of @imvisualart infinity war series,” he captioned the photo.

Vaishnavites, like Saivites, believe that there is only one Supreme God, who simultaneously permeates all creation and exists beyond it, being both immanent and transcendent.

This however, isn’t the first time Almasi has been on the spotlight because of his photos. For the better part of this year, the singer has been labeled as gay mainly because of his dress code after sharing several photos wearing a skirt.
