Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty is receiving backlash after calling SS Rajamouli's magnum opus RRR 'gay love story' and Alia Bhatt a 'prop' in the film. The masala entertainer has gone on to become an Rs. 1000 crore film worldwide and even is making waves across the world after streaming on Netflix. But, Pookutty is being slammed for his comments, even by Baahubali producer Shobu Yarlagadda.

Baahubali producer Shobu asked Resul even if RRR were to be a gay love story, what exactly would have been wrong with it?

“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!,” he wrote.

“Agree totally. Absolutely nothing wrong even if it was. I merely quoted my friend, the banter that already exists in public domain and nothing else. There is no stooping factor in this. You don’t have to take it seriously Shobu, I didn’t mean any offend to any stakeholders. I rest my case here! (sic),” said Resul.

The Telugu-language period action drama film is produced by D. V. V. Danayya of DVV Entertainments. RRR released on 25th March 2022 and arrived on Netflix in May 2022.
