Recently, Oscar award-winner sound designer Resul Pookutty became the talk of the town when he took a jibe at RRR. It so happened when Resul took to Twitter to reply to writer-director Munish Bhardwaj’s tweet who called SS Rajamouli directorial a ‘garbage’. He Tweeted, “Saw 30 minutes of garbage called RRR last night.” Re-tweet the same, Resul Pookutty not only called it gay love but also labelled Alia Bhatt as a prop.
Resul Pookutty re-tweeted Munish Bhardwaj’s Teet and wrote, “Gay love story ….” However added further, “… and @aliaa08 is a prop in that film…” Little did he know that his tweet would invite the wrath of troll. The award-winning sound designer received backlash for his tweets and his fans didn’t expect this to come from such a veteran.
Gay love story ….

Replying to him, a user wrote, “There are hundreds of reasons to appreciate RRR but you chose hate,” while another said, “What is the importance of Rashmika in Pushpa apart from callling saami saami and that stupid van scene? Alia Atleast has one standout scene. Better check your own films first.” Another one ever said, “Homophobic alert. He’s mocking a movie by calling it ‘gay’. @TheAcademy this whom you awarded with oscar?” Check out a few tweets below:
Ofcourse coming from a cuck who won Oscar for one of the worst films of all time glorifying slums who can't digest dharmic depiction from an unapologetic kattar Hindu SS Rajamouli, whom you seething hatred for ☺️ https://t.co/beGcUZHTTe

Dude he's a muslim and he must've considered Rrr as a movie that boasts of hindu nationalism which dissiminates hindutva. They've always had a religious prism through which they look at the world. https://t.co/wDlhBBdXRM
