Having worked on some of the biggest Indian films over the years, the Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty recently sparked controversy on Twitter with his comments on SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus RRR, starring Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the lead roles. 

Responding to the tweet from actor-writer Munish Bharadwaj, Pookutty called the film ‘a gay love story’. Adding to that, he also made a statement calling Alia Bhatt ‘a prop’ in the movie.

Now, responding to Resul’s comments about RRR, Baahubali producer Shobu Yarlagadda has slammed the sound designer for his remarks while mentioning in a tweet that it’s “disappointing” to see someone of his accomplishments “stoop so low.”

“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! (sic),” Baahubali producer Shobu wrote in a tweet to Resul. 

In his defence, Resul replied saying that he was merely quoting an article which described RRR as a gay love story and had stated only something that was already in the “public domain”. “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),” Resul tweeted.
