RRR, starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan, will be released on March 25, 2022, in five regional languages. The film directed by S.S. Rajamouli will be released in Telegu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi.

However, since yesterday, the hashtag #BoycottRRRinKarnataka has been trending on Twitter. Fans are outraged that the Kannada dubbed version of the film was given fewer screenings.
Netizens are enraged since the Kannada dubbed version has received less attention than the other dubbed versions. More screens have been allocated for the premiere of the Telegu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Hindi versions, causing uproar on social media.
