In midst of Bollywood celebrating RRR’s win, recently, SS Rajamoulli was seen disassociating RRR from Bollywood movies.
As quoted by Republic TV, SS Rajamouli said, “RRR is not a Bollywood film, it is a Telugu film from the south of India where I come from, but I use the song to move the story forward rather than stopping the film and giving you a piece of music and dance. I just use those elements to move the story forward.”
In an interview with GoldDerby, Jr NTR shared how Japan’s audiences expressed their love for RRR more than India could.
While sharing what he feels, he said, “Before we came here to see what the reaction of the West was, we were in the deep East. This movie collected 500 million Yen in Japan, it is no joke. I was there in Japan witnessing people crying. I felt they have expressed their love for RRR as audiences more than India could.”
“Afterwards, we thought maybe the West talking about it (RRR) on social mediaâ€¦ we thought you know we have our Indian crowds back there, maybe someone’s friend would have gone to the movieâ€¦ maybe it was just one or two people, but no it was not one or two, it did not stop. It started increasing, multiplying and multiplying and then we were like, you know what, I think it’s for real,” he added.
Further sharing how Naatu Naatu is not only a song but a movie itslf, he said, “I have done songs in my career that have more complicated steps than what ‘Naatu Naatu’ has. ‘Naatu Naatu’ is not about the complication of the step itself. It is synchronisation. The world went berserk seeing that synchronisation. ‘Naatu Naatu’ is not just a song. It is a movie, a story by itself.”
