When a person was thrashed for criticising film
Earlier, in an unverified video going viral on social media, a man can be seen being thrashed by a group of people after he pointed out flaws in the film. "Prabhas did not suit in the (Ram) get up. He was like a king and there was royalty in the Baahubali movie. He was taken for this (Ram) role by seeing his performance. Om Raut failed to show Prabhas properly,” the viewer said. He added that he didn't like the film much apart from a few scenes featuring Hanuman and the background score. His comments led to a heated argument between him and other fans of the Telugu star. It soon turned into a physical altercation.
