My intention was never to degrade Hrithik Roshan. - SS Rajamouli 

Popular filmmaker SS Rajamouli is enjoying the success and acclaim that his film 'RRR' has been receiving in international awards shows. Amidst all this, filmmaker also attracted some negative attention when an old video of him resurfaced in which he can be seen speaking ill of Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan. In a recent media interaction Rajamouli has admitted his mistake and acknowledged that he was out of line back then.

He stated, "It was long, long back — I think some 15-16 years back. But yeah, my choice of words wasn’t good, I must admit it. My intention was never to degrade him, I respect him a lot. It is long back.”

For the unversed, a video surfaced on Reddit in which Rajamauli can be heard saying, "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.”
