Director S.S. Rajamouli’s period action drama RRR was a massive success at the box office following its release. The movie also started getting a lot of praise from the West after its OTT release on Netflix. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has now talked about RRR and how it might fare at the Academy Awards.
Talking to Galatta Plus, Kashyap said, “The west sees RRR differently than what we see, and they have loved RRR. If RRR becomes India's selection, 99% it might get nominated at the Academy Award. That's the impact RRR has had on the world of Hollywood."
The acclaimed director said that he is speaking based on what people have reached out to him and talked about the west and that they have now discovered Rajamouli. He added that the movie has worked for the people of the West and that they even find it better than Marvel movies.
Kashyap added that it is not just the movie’s action set-pieces that have worked with the audience but even the dance sequence featuring both Ram Charan and Jr. NTR has had an impact.
With Charan and Jr. NTR in the lead, the movie also features Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, Ray Stevenson, Olivia Morris and Samuthirakani in important roles. RRR received positive reviews from the critics following its release and it became Rajamouli’s second movie to go past the Rs. 1000 crore mark at the box office.
The movie’s Hindi version is now available to stream on Netflix while its Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada versions are streaming on ZEE5.
Kashyap is currently awaiting the release of Dobaaraa, which stars Taapsee Pannu in the lead. The mystery drama is set to hit theatres on August 19.
