Taking to Twitter, he lamented the current state of social media discourse, stating, “Social media is going to dogs.” He emphasized that expressing opinions should be done respectfully and with an understanding of the song-making process. His tweet in Telugu highlighted the importance of love and passion in their work, urging fans to be mindful of their words.
రాయి విసిరే వాడే
అభిప్రాయం చెప్పేదానికి ఒక పధ్ధతి ఉంటుంది
పాట నిడివి తప్ప నిన్నటి పాటకు ఏం తక్కువయ్యిందని
మీకన్నా ఎక్కువ ప్రేమే మాక్కూడా..అదే
లేకపోతే..ప్రేమించకపోతే మా పని మేం గొప్పగా చెయ్యలేం ..తెలుసుకొని ఒళ్ళు దగ్గరపెట్టుకుని మాట్లాడండి

The film Guntur Kaaram, featuring Mahesh Babu and directed by Trivikram Srinivas, was initially one of the most anticipated releases. However, recent controversies, including script changes and casting issues, have dampened the enthusiasm. The latest criticism of the song has added to the series of setbacks, raising concerns about the film’s reception upon release.
This negative trend on social media poses a significant challenge for Thaman, who is known for his exceptional background scores. The scrutiny extends to director Trivikram Srinivas as well, known for his unique writing style. The industry is keenly observing how these developments will affect the film’s success, especially with the changing dynamics of social media.
Despite these challenges, there is hope that the film’s release during the festive season of Sankranthi may bring some respite. This period is considered auspicious and profitable for film releases. Both the director and the music team are looking forward to moving past the current controversy and focusing on their upcoming projects.
