Twitter is a platform where people express their opinions and views with millions of people out there. But has it been that simple? No. Twitter indirectly is the place that gives birth to various hot controversies and people are ready to add their opinion on the same as well.
Recently also, something just like this happened when Oscar-winning sound engineer Resul Pookutty tweeted about SS Rajamouli’s RRR. The film featured Jr NTR and Ram Charan in the leading roles. The film was highly appreciated and did great business at the box office worldwide.

And it did not take too long for the tweet to go viral. People and fans immediately started slamming him and criticizing him for demeaning RRR.
Producer Yarlagadda also tweeted in reply to Resul and wrote, ‘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!’

There is no stooping factor in this.U don’t have2 take it seriously Shobu,I didn’t mean any offense2 any stake holders.I rest my case here!’
