Rajamouli’s son Karthikeya pens lengthy note on first anniversary of ‘RRR’


Director S.S. Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘RRR’, which has been winning the hearts of the audience globally, has clocked one year since its release.

On the occasion, Rajamouli’s son, S.S. Karthikeya took to Twitter to celebrate the first anniversary of the film.

He penned a long note about how the Oscar winning song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the movie was conceptualised and then shot in Ukraine.

Karthikeya posted the note with the caption: “Probably, the most eventful year in my life. From the release of RRR to the Oscars. Will forever cherish this.”

The note started on an emotional beat, as it read: “Today is deeply emotional as it marks the completion of 1 year since the release of RRR, and the most glorious 365 days of uninterrupted celebrations. I’d like to ask you for a moment to share my love and thoughts.”

Karthikeya then reminisced about the time when the idea of the song came into existence: “Cut back to 2017 – the very idea of featuring two of the country’s biggest stars in one film sparked immense excitement in me and among everyone. Among the number of mind-bending sequences in the movie, one sequence which stood out and created a wave across the globe is ‘Naatu Naatu’. We all were obviously expecting a dance number, but I sure wasn’t able to imagine the context and the ‘HOW’. When Baba narrated the face-off sequence and the set-up, I was psyched out of my mind!

“As a crew member, I couldn’t wait to show this to everyone on the big screen and simultaneously as an audience, I couldn’t wait to watch it on the big screen! This power-packed dance number was like a movie by itself for me. Keeravaani Babai’s massy and electrifying tunes coupled with Bhairava’s final touch to the programming gave us goosebumps. After being energised by the magic of the audio, (programmed by Jeevan and Siddhu and sung by Bhairava and Rahul) began the visual rampage of Prem Master! The brief was simple – the dance moves should neither be too easy nor too complicated,” the note further read.

Karthikeya, in the note, said: “Prem Master then embarked on a long, relentless and arduous journey of choreographing the most challenging dance number ever… getting the country’s finest two dancers to dance together for the 1st time! He choreographed 120+ variations of the moves in a span of 2 months, from which around 15 or 20 were retained for the song. He kept rotating his crew as they used to get exhausted and couldn’t keep up with the rigour and pace of the steps.”

“The unwavering dedication, support and professionalism of our crew in Ukraine made our journey a smooth one and the ‘Naatu Naatu’ you see today possible. We will always have a special place in our hearts for our ‘Ukraine family’. Once our brilliant actors – Tarak anna and my brother Charan entered the sets, we quickly realised something big was in the making. Their blazing dance, the magical choreography, the pulsating music, and the overall vibe, the way all the elements complemented each other, made us believe that the theatres were going to be on fire. Without a doubt!” he added.

Thanking the fans, Karthikeya said: “We believe that the main reason ‘Naatu Naatu’ reached the Oscars is our fans and their unconditional love and unprecedented support until it became a global sensation. They made the song immortal not only on social media by carrying on their shoulder but also created euphoria which made it a part of sub-culture in many countries. We were elated when we conquered the box office across India and gained momentum in the west after toiling for years. However, little did we know that the best was yet to come, and we had barely started our journey.

“When Dylan, Josh Hurtado, Divergent, Accolade and Cinetic joined our family, it wasn’t just a synergy of experience and expertise… it was a synergy of love, dreams, passion and a shared vision. The common love helped us scale ‘RRR’ to unfathomable heights together. They reignited ‘RRR’ and Naatu Naatu’s hype in the West, reinvigorated our dreams of conquering the global stage and helped us reimagine the true potential of our film. They were our biggest cheerleaders who paved the way to the Oscars and saw a new beginning when we saw a glorious end.”

“While everyone says ‘RRR’ scripted history, it has transcended beyond a film to become a phenomenon, era, milestone and pride in all our careers. We will carry this in our hearts with humility and work more to make our nation more proud,” he concluded.

‘RRR’ stars NTR Jr., Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt and Shriya Saran and tells the fictional story of two real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem and their fight against the British Raj.

Set in the 1920s, the plot explores the undocumented period in their lives when both the revolutionaries chose to go into obscurity before they began the fight for their country.

Rajamouli not sure if he would helm film on RSS scripted by his dad


Well-known filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli has said that he is not sure if he would direct a film on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the script of which has been penned by his father and Rajya Sabha MP, Vijayendra Prasad.

In an interview to an international publication, the ‘RRR’ and ‘Baahubali’ director said while he would be honoured to direct the story, he is not sure if his father had written this script for some other organisation or producer.

Terming the story as a beautiful, human and emotional drama, Rajamouli also revealed that he cried many times while reading it.

Vijayendra Prasad, who had written the stories for the blockbusters ‘RRR’ and ‘Baahubali’, is currently working on a film about the RSS.

Prasad, who is a member of Rajya Sabha, had said in August last year that that he was going to helm both a film and a web series glorifying the RSS.

The screenwriter heaped praise on the RSS, and said that his formerly negative opinion about the organisation had changed since he was roped in to write a film on it.

Rajamouli, however, said in the interview that he is not too aware of the RSS.

“I have obviously heard of the organisation, but I don’t know how it was formed, what its exact beliefs are, how it has developed and all that,” he said.

The filmmaker, however, said that he read his father’s script.

“It is extremely emotional. I cried many times while reading that script. The script’s drama made me cry, but that reaction has got nothing to do with the history part of the story,” he said.

When asked if he would direct the movie, he said he is not sure.

Rajamouli said: “First of all, I don’t know whether that would be possible, because I don’t know if my father has written this script for some other organisation, people, or producer.

“Still, as for the question, I don’t have a definite answer. I would be honoured to direct the story, because it’s such a beautiful, human, and emotional drama. But I’m not sure about the script’s implications. I’m not saying that it would cause either a negative or a positive impact. For the first time, I’m not sure.”

It was in 2018 that there were reports about Vijayendra Prasad writing a film on RSS. It was reported that the film will highlight the contributions made by K.B. Hedgewar, M.S. Golwalkar, Veer Savarkar, K.S. Sudarshan and Mohan Bhagwat to the organisation.

At a book launch event of RSS leader Ram Madhav in Vijayawada on August 16, 2022, Prasad had confessed that until three or four years ago, he did not know much about the RSS and that like many others, he believed that they killed Mahatma Gandhi.

Prasad had said: “But four years ago, they asked me to write a film on RSS. As I was being paid for it, I went to Nagpur and met Mohan Bhagwat. I stayed there for a day and understood for the first time what RSS is. I felt a lot of remorse that I wasn’t aware of such a great organisation for so long.”

In July last year, Prasad was nominated to Rajya Sabha. The BJP-led government said that he has been instrumental in instilling cultural pride and nationalistic spirit through cinema.

Hailing from Andhra Pradesh, Prasad has written stories for many Telugu and Hindi movies.

His notable works include some of the highest-grossing Indian movies such as ‘Baahubali’ series, ‘RRR’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.

‘Extraordinary to look at and experience’: Spielberg makes Rajamouli’s day


It’s safe to say Steven Spielberg is an ‘RRR’ fan, reports Naman Ramachandran of ‘Variety’ after watching a Zoom conversation between the auteur and S.S. Rajamouli, the helmer of the film that has got the world dancing to the beat of ‘Naatu Naatu’.

Spielberg, whose latest, ‘The Fabelmans’, is in the race for seven Oscars, praised ‘RRR’ as “eye candy” and promised to return to India, where he last filmed ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ in 1976, for one of his upcoming projects.

The two men, who had a brief encounter at a Golden Globes cocktail party in Los Angeles in January, caught up over a Zoom call on Thursday (U.S. Pacific Time), according to ‘Variety’. The conversation was facilitated by Reliance Entertainment, a long-term partner of Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, which co-produced and released ‘The Fabelmans’ theatrically across India on February 10.

“I thought your movie was outstanding … it was just amazing,” Spielberg said. “I couldn’t believe my eyes — it was like eye candy … it was extraordinary to look at and experience.”

Rajamouli, according to ‘Variety, was elated with the praise, saying: “I can almost get up from the chair and do a dance — it means a lot to me.”

Spielberg also praised the performances of ‘RRR’ leads Ram Charan, NTR Jr, Alia Bhatt and antagonist Alison Doody, who played the British governor’s evil wife, and had acted in his film ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’ (1989).

Rajamouli, who is a massive fan of Spielberg in general and ‘The Fabelmans’ in particular, asked Spielberg a series of questions about the motivations behind making the film and about portraying a version of his own family on screen.

“As I was watching the film, initially [it] felt like ‘Oh my God’, he’s picturising his own mom as not so good. I was empathising with the father,” Rajamouli said, according to ‘Variety’. “But as we progress, we understand the difficulty of the situation — no one is bad. It is not about a person being good or bad. It’s about following your heart and following your duty.”

Spielberg responded by noting: “There are no villains in the story. It’s a story about love. It’s a story about a young boy, much like myself, named Sammy Fabelman, who falls in love with movie cameras and making movies with his neighbourhood friends, which eventually is going to lead him to a career.”

He added: “And it’s about following your heart and not sacrificing yourself and your own happiness and your own future, to make others around you safe and comfortable.”

Talking about his mother, Spielberg said, according to Variety: “My mom took life into her own hands. And she had a huge, beautiful personality. But she was always very honest about what she needed, and what she wanted from this life. And she took it for herself. But she still brought all of us along with her. We never felt abandoned by the choices that she was making.”

Spielberg, adds ‘Variety’, stressed the importance of the family unit and explained how he passed on the first Harry Potter film in order to spend time with them.

To which Rajamouli said: “Luckily for me, I keep my whole family in the film business, my wife, my son, my brother, my brother’s wife — everyone is with me making movies, so I don’t miss my family.”

Spielberg did not rule out a sequel to ‘The Fabelmans’, but said there were no immediate plans for it.

Cameron to Rajamouli: If you ever want to make a movie over here, let’s talk


Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron, who spoke to Indian filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli, at length, was all praise for his vision, his genius storytelling and the emotions that drive his characters.

In his conversation with S.S. Rajamouli, Cameron said: “It’s just such a feeling to watch your characters, and your setup, the fire, water, story, reveal after reveal, then moving on the backstory of why he’s doing what he’s doing, the twists and turns and friendship.”

“It’s just so powerful. And I love the fact that you just threw the whole thing out, it’s just the full show. I love that. I can only imagine the pride and power your country and your home audience feels you must feel on top of the world.”

Apart from speaking highly about the film, which Cameron’s wife revealed he watched not once but twice, the ‘Avatar’ and ‘Titanic’ director also extended an invitation to collaborate with Rajamouli on an international film.

James Cameron said while the two iconic directors parted ways: “And one thing, if you ever want to make a movie over here, let’s talk.”

Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ also won India its first Golden Globe award for ‘Best Original Song’. The historic film also won the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ and ‘Best Song’ at the 28th Critics Choice Awards.

Rajamouli confirms international collaboration for his next


Lately, Rajamouli has expressed his desire over working for a Hollywood production house. This is turning out to be true after RRR made headlines. Rajamouli has signed a deal with CAA (Creative Artists Agency) which is promoting RRR across the international platforms. CAA is assisting him to meet some people and also assisting him through his Hollywood vision. The director has been meeting renowned Hollywood directors James Cameron and Steven Spielberg at the award ceremony event in the US. RRR gained the world’s attention after Naatu Naatu won the 80th Golden Globes award.

For now, Rajamouli is trying to figure out what to do and how to do it. But before going to Hollywood, Rajamouli will finish his film with Mahesh Babu, which is in pending for 10 years and the film is tentatively titled SSMB29. The film is said to be an action-adventure and Rajamouli has started working on the script of SSMB29. The shoot starts later this year and it would be made on a lavish scale. The film will be produced by KL Narayana in association with a Hollywood studio.

‘A Telugu film from south of India’: Rajamouli educates US journos about ‘RRR’


S.S. Rajamouli, who is basking in the attention that his magnum opus ‘RRR’ is getting after the Golden Globe win of ‘Naatu Naatu’, has set the record straight for American journalists. He has made it clear to them that the film is not a Bollywood movie, but “a Telugu film that comes from the south of India”.

Rajamouli was speaking to a group of journalists, following the screening of his film at the Directors Guild of America.

The director 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.”

He added: “At the end of the film, if you say I didn’t feel it like for three hours, then I know I am a successful filmmaker.”

Rajamouli’s magnum opus is all over the news as the song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from ‘RRR’ won the Golden Globe Award in the Best Original Song category. The song defeated the likes of Rihanna’s ‘Lift Me Up’ from ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ and Taylor Swift’s ‘Carolina’ from ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’.

Ram Charan saw ‘RRR’ for the first time with Rajamouli at 4 am in local theatre


Actor Ram Charan, whose song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the historical fiction film ‘RRR’ recently bagged the Golden Globe for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture, recently revealed that he saw ‘RRR’ for the first time in theatre with director S. S. Rajamouli at 4 a.m. in a local theatre because none of the actors were allowed to watch the film before it was opened to the public.

Needless to say, the actor was bowled over by how the director put the film together with the editing and the spellbinding VFX.

Ram Charan told film critic David Poland, “My mind was blown and we never knew the same when we were shooting it”.

‘RRR’ is the second film on which Ram Charan and Rajamouli worked together, the first was ‘Magadheera’. Ram Charan said just like 14 years ago when his first film with Rajamouli was released, he watched ‘RRR’ too with the director at 4 a.m. in the local theatre. “We had the masks on because it was post pandemic, the cap and everything, but somehow I guess the audience figured out that it was me and my family because I was sitting next to the director”.

The actor also mentioned that ‘RRR’ was his 14th film and his 15th is on its way.

He further mentioned, “I am getting older and I plan to do two films a year. I have signed three films in 2023. For 2024, I have signed three films. I have six films under proposal”.

When asked about his challenging performances, the actor spoke about ‘Rangasthalam’. “I played a deaf character from a remote village. It was a great experience to learn the nuances of how a villager behaves who is also deaf,” he concluded.

Fans mob Rajamouli, NTR Jr at ‘RRR’ screening in LA’s Chinese Theatre


Ahead of their appearance at the Golden Globe awards evening in Los Angeles, ‘RRR’ director S.S. Rajamouli and NTR Jr are soaking in the love and affection of their fans in the city.

On Monday night, both Rajamouli and Tollywood’s ‘Man of Masses’ NTR Jr attended the film’s screening at LA’s iconic TCL Chinese Theatre on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, where he was cheered by fans.

The iconic Chinese Theatre, which houses one of the world’s biggest IMAX screens, witnessed an epic turnout of ‘RRR’ fans at the screening, whose tickets were sold out in 90 seconds.

NTR Jr was seen smiling and interacting with the swarms of fans who asked for selfies and chanted ‘Jai NTR!’. It was a historic moment for an Indian film at the century-old Chinese Theatre.

Rajamouli signs a deal with Creative Artists Agency


SS Rajamouli’s recent magnum opus RRR failed to get nominated by the Film Federation of India (FFI) for the Oscars from India. Chhello Show is the film that is the official entry from the country in the category of Best Foreign Film. But Rajamouli has been working hard and is meeting the voting members of the Academy Awards. Hollywood-based agency Creative Artists Agency is representing Rajamouli for the Oscars. Rajamouli is the first Indian director to ink a deal with this creative agency. The agency is taking RRR to all the voting members and a number of screenings of RRR are held in the recent weeks.

Rajamouli too has been spending ample time abroad and is available for the screenings of RRR. Several lunch and dinner meetings happened in the recent weeks. There are several critics and technicians who lauded and promoted RRR. The entire nation is eagerly waiting for the Oscars. RRR is a periodic film set during the pre-independence era that had NTR and Ram Charan in the lead roles. The film was one of the biggest hits among the Indian films of 2022. Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, Samuthirakani and others played some prominent roles in RRR.

‘RRR’ is the most-favoured international film on the US awards circuit today

With 32 critics’ and industry prizes handed out thus far, and Oscar nomination voting now less than 10 days away, ‘RRR’ is definitely in the reckoning on a slate of hopefuls where Steven Spielberg is one of the leading contenders with his semi-autobiographical ‘The Fabelmans’ and Cate Blanchett is locked in a riveting battle of nerves with Michelle Yeoh.

And the awards season is very much around, with the Palm Springs Film Festival kicking off later this week and the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards on their way to marking their first televised ceremonies of the season.

To find out who stands where, we turned to ‘Variety’, which has been tracking where the awards have gone so far. S.S. Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’, starring Ram Charan and Jr NTR, has won the most awards for Best International Feature (nine, compared with seven for the Korean ‘Decision to Leave’, which won for Park Chan-wook the Cannes 2022 Best Director award) and Best Original Score (by M.M. Keeravani, a.k.a. M.M. Kreem to Hindi cinema watchers) — four nods, behind the five won by ‘The Batman’ and ‘Babylon’ and above the three of ‘Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio’.

The irony, though, is that ‘RRR’ is not India’s official entry — it is Pan Nalin’s Gujarati film, ‘Chhello Show’ (Last Show) — but the Tollywood blockbuster’s American promoters, Variance Films, has included it in all award categories.

The leaders in the other main categories are:

Best Picture: ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ – 16

Best Director: The Daniels (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) for ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ – 16

Best Actor: Colin Farrell (‘The Banshees of Inisherin’) – 16; Brendan Fraser (‘The Whale’) – nine

Best Actress: Michelle Yeoh (‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’) – 15; Cate Blanchett (‘Tar’) – 11

Best Supporting Actor: Ke Huy Quan (‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’) – 24

Best Supporting Actress: Kerry Condon (‘The Banshees of Inisherin’) – nine

Original Screenplay: ‘The Banshees of Inisherin’ – 15; ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ – 10

Animated Feature: ‘Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio’ – 14; ‘Marcel the Shell with Shoes On’ – eight

Cinematography: ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ – 15

Film Editing: ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ – 10

The Oscars throw up real surprises every season and this year is not going to be any different. But this list of the leaders is indicative of how the people whose votes will determine who all will go home with the prized statuette, are thinking today.

The film would be a stylish action entertainer and will be made on a massive budget. Rajamouli is not in a mood for foreign investors but he is keen on collaborations with international studios. There are multiple reasons for this. He wants a good and huge release for his next film and it should be promoted on a grand note.

Rajamouli hires an International Team

SS Rajamouli is one of the finest directors and he is a mastermind when it comes to promoting his film. Telugu360 was the first to break out the news that Rajamouli has been spending close to Rs 50 crores for the Oscar campaign for his recent release RRR and the entire money came from his own pockets. SS Rajamouli has hired an international team of promotional campaigners who are quite aggressive and are arranging screenings of RRR for the jury members of the Oscars. Rajamouli and RRR are nominated for several International award events in the recent weeks and this is a result of the campaign.

Rajamouli who chalks out a perfect plan has explained the same to the new PR team and they are executing it perfectly. The international distributor of RRR too has been quite supportive in this process. One may get puzzled or surprised why should Rajamouli spend huge money for this. He has a loud plan for it. RRR has the potential to win an Oscar predicts Rajamouli. Else, all the promotional campaigns would help the top director for his next film which will have Mahesh Babu in the lead role. Rajamouli is a genius in all these aspects. Hope the country’s best director would soon bring an Oscar for RRR.
