“We (South) have better Heroes than Hrithik Roshan”: Rajamouli’s controversial video

An old video of filmmaker SS Rajamouli comparing Hrithik Roshan and Prabhas is going viral on social media. Here’s how users are reacting to this.

SS Rajamouli on Hrithik 

Baahubali and RRR helmer SS Rajamouli had once compared Prabhas to Hrithik Roshan and said that the latter is nothing in front of his Baahubali star. It happened so at the trailer launch of Prabhas’s Billa in 2008. Rajamouli made the comparison between the actors after seeing some visuals from the film Billa.


A clip of Rajamouli’s speech has resurfaced on the internet and it has earned a mixed response. In the clip, Rajamouli said, “When Dhoom 2 released two years ago, I wondered why only Bollywood can make such quality films. Don’t we have heroes like Hrithik Roshan? I just saw the songs, poster, and trailer of Billa, and I can only say one thing. Hrithik Roshan is nothing in front of Prabhas. I’d like to thank Meher Ramesh (director) for taking Telugu cinema to the Hollywood level.”

Twitter Reactions

Rajamouli’s old statement has left the user with mixed feelings. One of them took to the comment section and wrote “He made baahubali by copying action scenes from Hollywood and indian audience thought , he is a great director. But this is pathetic… How can he say such filthy words for @iHrithik !!!
