‘Boycott RRR Tn Karnataka’ Trends, Netizens Complain About SS Rajamouli’s Film Not Released in Kannada

The RRR team is currently on tour promoting the magnum opus across the county. The stars have planned to travel across Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Dubai, Baroda, Delhi, Jaipur, Amritsar and Kolkata, and Varanasi for promotions. One of the most anticipated movies of the year, RRR has been making headlines lately. The film is set to hit theaters on March 25, 2022. Now Karnataka fans have taken to Twitter to express their displeasure that the film has not been released in Kannada language in Karnataka, and are trending #BoycottRRRinKarnataka on social networks.

On Wednesday, dozens of social media users took to the microblogging site and tweeted in sync with the #BoycottRRRinKarnataka trend. Netizens say that RRR movie was not released in Kannada language in Karnataka and that is a big insult to Kannadigas. One of the Twitteratis shared a screenshot from a ticket booking site which shows the show is only available in Hindi and Tamil. Along with the screenshot, he wrote, “Your movie won’t be promoted in Karnataka if you dare to release tickets in all other languages ​​except Kannada. #BoycottRRRinKarnataka @ssrajamouli.”

“Big insult to kannada people, no kannada version reservations #Pushpa #RadheShyam also did the same, this time we shouldn’t tolerate Why did you do an event in #Karnataka? @ssrajamouli @RRRMovie #RRR #RRRMovie,” read a third tweet.

One social media user wrote, “High time to trend #BoycottRRRinKarnataka. Stop throwing Telugu at Kannadigas. The KFI heroes may be spineless, but the Kannadigas are not.

While some are following the trend, others have come out in favor of the film, saying the trend should be #ReleaseRRRInKannada for the film to be released in the language as well. One user wrote, “Dear Kannadigas instead of #BoycottRRRinKarnataka why don’t you trend like #ReleaseRRRinKannada?? Your hashtags make it worse for you only for your upcoming movies. Your concern is absolutely correct but why not use better hashtags??

For the uninitiated, RRR is based on the lives of Telugu freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. These two roles are played by Ram Charan and Jr NTR respectively. The film also stars Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn among others.

Recently, SS Rajamouli talked about Ram Charan and Jr NTR for the casting of RRR and mentioned that their acting skills are perfectly suited for the roles. “Their stardom, personalities and acting abilities made them the right fit for the roles. The most significant aspect is the camaraderie and friendship they have. They knew each other before RRR. Ramaraju appears calm throughout the film. Charan has the same personality,” he said.

While the film will now be released on March 25, its Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada versions will be available on ZEE5. It will also stream on Netflix in Hindi, Portuguese, Korean, Turkish and Spanish.
