Priyanka Chopra Got Roasted After Making This Comment About “RRR” !!
By Surithi J
Priyanka Chopra, a well-known Indian actor, recently made a statement regarding the film RRR, directed by SS Rajamouli, that sparked a lot of controversy. While speaking in an interview with podcast channel Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard, Priyanka Chopra referred to RRR as a Tamil film, despite it being originally made in Telugu. This caused an uproar among fans who took to social media to express their disappointment and frustration with her mistake.
The interview initially began with Dax Shepard comparing Bollywood to the 1950s Hollywood era, where a few big studios and actors controlled everything. Priyanka Chopra agreed with this comparison and added that the game has changed a lot since then, with the advent of streaming platforms that have given access to more people to create content. She also mentioned that Bollywood has evolved and become more inclusive over the years. However, the conversation quickly shifted towards RRR, and Priyanka Chopra made her now-infamous statement.

She corrected Dax Shepard, who referred to RRR as a Bollywood film, by stating that it was a Tamil film. Priyanka Chopra referred to it as a big, mega, blockbuster Tamil movie that does all of those things, comparing it to Avengers. Her mistake, however, did not go unnoticed, and many people took to social media to express their displeasure.
One user on Twitter tagged Priyanka Chopra in a tweet and wrote, “Lost all respect.” Another user added, “IDK what’s the context. She could have done some research before mentioning but could have just said Indian film. This south vs south, north vs south is getting too much these days .. Feels like stan Twitter fan wars.” One more user said, “This sums up the entire issue, doesn’t it? Some folks were upset SSR called it a Telugu film, but isn’t it annoying when every movie is called Bollywood and people can’t differentiate between Tamil and Telugu?”

The controversy over Priyanka Chopra’s statement raises several important issues about regionalism, language barriers, and the lack of knowledge about different cultures within India. While it is understandable that mistakes can happen, the criticism she received indicates the importance of cultural sensitivity and awareness in a country as diverse as India.
Moreover, the backlash against Priyanka Chopra also highlights the problem of oversimplification in the mainstream media, particularly in the representation of films from different regions of India. The fact that RRR was initially made in Telugu, but Priyanka Chopra referred to it as a Tamil film, shows how the dominant narrative often fails to recognize the nuances and complexities of regional identities.

Furthermore, the incident also exposes the lack of knowledge about Indian cinema beyond Bollywood, which dominates the global representation of Indian film. While Bollywood films may be popular worldwide, India has a rich and diverse film industry that includes several regional languages and cultures. However, the mainstream media often overlooks these films, and as a result, many people are unaware of them.
