This is not the first time that Rajamouli’s masterpiece is being appreciated by western filmmakers and celebrities. A few months back, The Vampire Diaries’ Joseph Morgan showered praised on RRR and called it “just stunning cinema.” His tweet read: “Had a bit of time off shooting and @RealPersiaWhite and I watched two incredible movies. RRR & Everything Everywhere All At Once. Both were astounding. We laughed and cried and gasped in amazement. Just stunning cinema.”
In July, Hollywood director- writer Aaron Steweat Ahn, known for Mandy (2018) had expressed his wish to write a movie for Ram Charan, after he watched RRR. He had tweeted, “Would love to write a movie for a movie star like Ram Charan, just to work with such a great actor and cinematic presence. But if he works in international productions he must be the lead! Hollywood usually doesn’t get that. I’m here for more great Indian movies.”
RRR, also starring Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt in guest roles, is streaming on Netflix.
