Vijayendra Prasad, the great writer and father of director SS Rajamouli, recently sparked controversy with comments on RRR Heroes that upset NTR fans. While criticizing his remarks is understandable, some media outlets have crossed the line by launching personal attacks on him.
Although Prasad made a mistake by suggesting NTR’s character was secondary, the media’s extreme response is unwarranted. Fans expressing their emotions is expected, but certain media handles have taken it a step further by suggesting that Prasad’s comments might impact Rajamouli’s future projects.
Some even advocate keeping him away from media interactions. This harsh stance is both unnecessary and shocking. Adding to the concern, certain media outlets on social platforms have introduced caste dynamics into the discussion, openly quoting caste-related and anti-caste comments.
This not only diverts attention from the original issue but also intensifies the controversy unnecessarily. While criticism of Vijayendra Prasad’s comments is valid, the personal attacks by some media outlets, coupled with the injection of caste-related discussions, are disproportionate and undermine constructive dialogue.
