In his speech he said, “Ranbir ji, aapko ek baat bolna chahta hu. Agla paanch saal mein, poore Hindustan ko, Bollywood, Hollywood, poora ruling karega humara Telugu people. Aap bhi ek saal ke baad Hyderabad shift hona padta. Kyu bole toh Bombay purana ho gaya. Bangalore traffic jam ho gaya. Hindustan mein ek hi city hai woh hai Hyderabad (Ranbir Sir, I want to tell you one thing. In the next five years, Telugu people will rule the entire of India, Bollywood, Hollywood, everything. After one year, you will also end up shifting to Hyderabad. Now, Bombay has become old, Bangalore has traffic jam, so now there is only one city in India and it is Hyderabad).

One of the netizens said, “I felt it like pure disrespect behavior, being in the position of a Minister he shouldn't have told this. #Prabhas once said : In the future there won't be North & South, there will be only one industry "Indian Industry" Yet another social media user added, “He attempted to portray the Telugu film industry as superior, labeling other industries and their people as stupid and far behind. The individual even went as far as suggesting that actors like #RanbirKapoor would seek refuge in Hyderabad in the coming years”.
Coming to Animal, the film, also starring Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor, and Triptii Dimri in key roles, is slated for release on December 1 in all South languages and Hindi.
