SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ is earning a lot more fame than the first movie ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’. The movie has broken all the records any Indian movie would have set in past.
However, with fame come criticism. People have somehow discovered a five year-old post of SS Rajamouli which is on casteism. It’s hard to believe that such renowned movie maker once had such opinions, but we believe that his thoughts would have changed over the years.
Here is SS Rajamouli’s original post.
Here is what he wrote,
We learnt The Caste system from Manusmrithi was based on our lifestyle and not by birth. Mr.Prasad, A gentleman whom I play tennis with, told me a better expansion.
Panchama Jaathi(Untouchables) One who depends on others for his living.(Parasite)
Sudra One who lives for himself and his family.
Vysya One who makes profit for himself as well as for the person with whom he is trading with.
Kshatriya One who eats after the people under him have eaten.
Brahmin One who first learns and then teaches… SS Rajamouli via twitter (sic)
This is how people are reacting to his post,
A few even demanded to boycott his movies!
Trolling and slamming have become a part and parcel of social media. But, is it justified to troll someone because he posted something nearly half a decade ago! Hope SS Rajamouli post a clarification on this soon!
