Resul Pookutty Statement on RRR: SS Rajamouli’s film ‘RRR’ was well-liked. The film was highly praised not only in India but also abroad. In terms of earnings, the film broke all the records. Worldwide collection of RRR stood at 1100 crores. The film was released in theaters on 24 March 2022. But RRR remains in the discussion for some reason or the other. Now a new case has come to the fore regarding the film. Oscar winner Resul Pookutty made such a controversial statement about RRR, after which a controversy arose on social media.
Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty calls RRR a ‘gay love story’. So much so that he said about Alia Bhatt that Alia is a prop in the film. Let us tell you that the friendship between Jr NTR and Ram Charan was shown in RRR. At the same time, Alia Bhatt also appeared in the film. But his screen time was less. After this tweet by Resul Pookutty regarding RRR, there was an uproar on social media and on seeing this the controversy increased a lot.
Producers furious over Resul Pookutty
RRR producer Shobhu criticized such remarks Resul Pookutty and tweeted, ‘I don’t think RRR is a gay love story. As you think. But if so, is gay love story a bad thing? How would you justify this? It is very disappointing that a person like you can think at this level.
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! https://t.co/c5FmDjVYu9

This controversy did not settle down, but after this Resul Putuki also responded to the tweet of the RRR producer. However, Resul Pookuti apologized and requested to end the matter.
Replying to the producer’s tweet, Resul Putuki wrote- ‘I completely agree with you. There is nothing wrong in this even if it is a gay love story. I just shared this with my friend as a joke, as it is already discussed on social media and nothing else. There is nothing falling down in it. Don’t take it seriously Shobhu. My intention was not to hurt the heart of any stakeholder. Here I end my talk.
