Hyderabad: SS Rajamouli has now become a star director not only in the Telugu industry but also at the pan-India level. With back-to-back massive hits, the director is now gearing up for period action-drama ‘RRR’, which is making a lot of noise among the audience.
The filmmaker appeared at BIG FM’s ‘Onward & Upward – The BIG Morning Show’, as a guest speaker at the show’s landmark 300th episode.
The director’s most-awaited upcoming project – ‘RRR’ – is a fictional story about two Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama and Komaram Bheem, who fought against the British and the Nizams of Hyderabad. Ram Charan and Jr NTR will be seen essaying the characters respectively.
However, whether the film will be released in theatres or on an OTT platform is still not made clear. Talking about the digital space and if he considers it to be a competition, the director says, “I don’t see OTT as a competition to theatre or TV. I’m in a comfortable space because I base my films more on primary emotions. So, in a way, my work addresses all varieties of audiences.”
Although the pandemic has disrupted the complete schedule of the industry, Rajamouli feels the halt was very necessary as ‘we got time to take a relook at our lives’. “If we keep aside the health aspect, I feel there are so many positive things that we can learn from this halt. With this, we are getting time to spend with our family, to relook at what we are doing and where we want to be. I see it as an opportunity to look at life in a new perspective,” he said.
On what can be expected from his film ‘RRR’, he said, “You can expect your money’s worth of entertainment. I am confident of the movie because of the story, and performances, especially the emotional sequences in the film. I use action in my movies to enhance the drama, which is my strength, so I’m hoping this time too, the audiences will have a good time.”
