Recently, director SS Rajamouli opened up about the criticism of showing Britishers as the villains in RRR.

“In the beginning of the film, you see the disclaimer card. Even if you miss it, it’s not a history lesson. It’s a story. The audience in general understands it. If a British is playing the villain, they understand that I am not saying all the Britishers are villains. If my heroes are Indians, they understand that all Indians are heroes. In this film, a particular guy is a villain and a particular guy is a hero. They automatically understand," Rajamouli said as quoted by The Indian Express.
