Recently during an interview, SS Rajamouli admitted that the Academy Award-winning film, Parasite, failed to impress him. Baahubali film makers also called it a boring film and said that he was sleeping through the first half of the movie. His comment didn't go down well with a section of the audience and they trolled the director. Director Prashant Kumar of Mithai fame, took to Twitter and lashed out Rajamouli for his comments about the South Korean film Parasite, which has won four honors at the 92nd Academy Awards.
Prashant Kumar said, “Parasite is an original piece of work. Originality deserves respect especially when it is powerful enough to cut across language barriers and Parasite has done that more effectively than any other foreign language movies. I have come across many instances in your films, like Sye, you have lifted entire scenes from other films, without as much as an acknowledgment.”
