SS Rajamouli Says, ‘I Think It Is The Dream Of Every Filmmaker To Make Films In Hollywood’

Just as RRR actors Ram Charan and Jr NTR are being asked about their Hollywood plans, the Telugu movie’s author-director SS Rajamouli too is being pursued to make a movie in Hollywood. After the Golden Globes last week and RRR’s big win, Rajamouli and composer MM Keeravaani met with filmmakers Steven Spielberg and James Cameron. Both directors praised the RRR team and Rajamouli for their work on the period film.

The filmmaker, who has made some trips to the US now to display RRR, shared that he was speechless with the kind of response to the movie, mainly in America. He shared that it was why he wanted to make films to get joy out of the audience.

Speaking to American mag Entertainment Weekly’s Awards podcast, Rajamouli shared, “I assume it is the dream of each filmmaker internationally to make a film in Hollywood. I am no one of a kind. I’m open to experimentation.” He also went on to say that he was somewhat bewildered about what to do subsequently.

On home soil, the filmmaker revealed that he enjoyed more creative power and final cut on his projects. He said, “Back in India, I am the dictator. No one tells me how to make a movie.” If he did make a movie in Hollywood, he thought he could take a co-credit score with every other artiste. “Very probable; my first step might be taking part with someone,” he said.

RRR has emerged as the communicate of Hollywood after its latest win at an industry award.

Keeravani’s Naatu Naatu beat out award-prevailing artists like Taylor Swift, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes on Wednesday. The Telugu movie won awards for Best Song and Foreign Language Film at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on Sunday.

Keeravaani picked the Best Music/Score award for RRR at the weekend at the forty-eighth Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards. In his speech, he thanked veteran movie John Williams who taught him “the lesson of simplicity and humbleness” with his score on Steven’s Jaws (1975). He also thanked his father and Rajamouli for their influence on his lifestyle.
