SS Rajamouli's magnum opus RRR is currently streaming globally on Netflix. The Jr NTR and Ram Charan film remains to be the top choice of subscribers across the world. Amid widespread appreciation and acclaim, a viewer failed to like the film. The viewer happened to be actor-writer Munish Bharadwaj.

Criticising RRR, he tweeted, "Saw 30 minutes of garbage called RRR last night (sic)" Soon after Munish tweeted his take on the film, Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty commented and called it a "gay love story" and felt Alia Bhatt was "a prop in that film". His remarks courted controversy.

Slamming Resul's comment, Bahubali's producer Shobu Yarlagadda tweeted, "I don't think @RRRMovie is a gay love story as you say but even if it was, is "gay love story" a bad thing? How can you justify using this ? Extremely disappointed that someone of your accomplishments can stoop so low!"

Reacting to Shobu's tweet, Resul wrote, "Agree totally.Absolutely nothing wrong even if it was. I merely quoted2 my frnd,d banter that already exists in public domain &nothing else. There is no stooping factor in this.U don’t have2 take it seriously Shobu,I didn’t mean any offense2 any stake holders.I rest my case here!"

RRR, a fictional tale of two revolutionary freedom fighters, was critically and commercially successful in theatres across the globe. While the film received rave reviews, a section of people felt it is a gay love story because of Ram Charan and Jr NTR's bromance.
