At a time when it is raining Baahubali 2 everywhere, filmmaker SS Rajamouli was recently slammed by members of the social media. And, the reason is quite shocking and confusing at the same time.

Rajmaouli shared a post on caste system five years back on his Facebook account. And now, some people have dug up the post criticising the filmmaker’s views on caste system and its divisions.

On October 4 2012, Rajamouli took to social media and said “We learnt the caste system from Manusmrithi was based on our lifestyle and not by birth”.

Now, the five-year-old post is incurring the wrath of social media. Users have denounced it saying: "Shame on you," while one user wrote: "You have a Stylist Hairstyle but Polluted Skull".

On the other hand, there were some users who posted relatively polite comments like: "I don't know who derived this theory exactly but I can say that it is a foolish one." 

Some people also agreed with Rajamouli's opinion saying: "Yes, you are correct, we have to read that in new and better way... not by birth... but by deed...”.

A user made a valid point and said, “Why are so many people digging up this old post and bashing him? He is no way a spiritual leader, he has just posted few lines what he heard from other people. He isn't asking you people for your thoughts on this”.

Meanwhile, SS Rajamouli is enjoying the success of his epic film Baahubali: The Conclusion. The film has created history as it has minted over Rs 500 crore worldwide on the third day of its release.
