Actor Siddharth has slammed three film critics – Anupama Chopra, Rahul Desai and Sucharita Tyagi – from Film Companion for leaving out his film The House Next Door – which released last year, during their discussion on the horror genre in Indian films.
It was pointed out by a Twitter user who was miffed that The House Next Door (Aval in Tamil and Gruham in Telugu) was conveniently left out.

The 23-minute video has the trio discussing the Ramsay Brothers, Ram Gopal Varma and Vikram Bhatt’s films and discussing which year was the best period for Indian horror films but Siddharth’s movie did not come up in their discussion.
The House Next Door, starring Siddharth (which he also co-produced and wrote) and Andrea Jeremiah and directed by Milind Rau, was judged as one of the better movies of 2017.
Deeply disappointed with the conversation, Siddharth took to Twitter to agree and called the critics “3 frogs.”
3 frogs sit in their Mumbai well and talk like authorities on the horror genre in Hindi cinema. Deeply disappointing but not even slightly surprising. Do your job. Do yourself a favour. Learn to watch better films. Stop being such a cliche. #Fail https://t.co/Xyd0j7dItv
