'Radhe Shyam' has been targeted by trolls incessantly. The film is now a confirmed disaster, although the producers have safely recovered their investments. The distributors are said to have suffered huge losses.
Meanwhile, activist and self-styled rationalist Babu Gogineni has targeted the film. Babu, who appeared in the reality show Bigg Boss (Telugu) in 2018, alleged that 'Radhe Shyam' was made on the basis of foolish WhatsApp forwards. "Who in his senses would make a film based entirely on WhatsApp forwards?" he asked in a social media rant.
If the audience have disliked the Radha Krishna Kumar directorial over content, Babu's lament is something else. He has hurled insults at the film because it glorifies astrology. As a rationalist, Babu believes that astrology is unscientific. In sharp contrast, 'Radhe Shyam' suggests that astrology is 99% science.
