Is RRR a gay love story? This Oscar winner thinks so. How Internet users react


SS Rajamouli’s “RRR” is back in the news. It’s currently trending on social media after some pointed out they consider it a “gay romance” rather than an “action” movie. Some Western audiences recently tweeted that they really enjoyed the romance between Ram Charan and Jr NTR. Reacting to this, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma reacted to the comments. He wrote: ”I was right. “They’re so gay” that Western audiences perceive “RRR” as a gay story.”

And now Oscar-winning actor Resul Pookutty has also said it’s a ‘gay love story’, citing a Times of India article.

How did fans react to the comment?

Fans of the film didn’t take Pookutty’s comments well and reacted angrily for fairly obvious reasons. Although Resul disabled the ability for fans to reply to his comment, many users quoted his tweet and expressed disappointment at the Oscar-winning actor’s unexpected response.

One user on Twitter wrote: “There is no shame or harm even if it’s this kind of #LGBT story. does not satisfy us.”

Another fan anticipated his disappointment, saying, “I didn’t expect this from an Oscar winner.” However, this isn’t the first time the film has been associated with the LGBTQ theme. After the film was released on Netflix, a number of international viewers were seen criticizing the bromance between the two leads.
