The Critics’ Choice Award win comes right after creating headlines at the 80th Golden Globes. His film ‘RRR’ was Best Foreign Language Film and its track ‘Naatu Naatu’ once again clinched the Best Original Song honour.
While accepting the honour, Rajamouli said: “To all the women in my life. My mother Raja Nandini thought school education was overrated and she encouraged me to read comics and story books and encouraged my creativity.”
“My sister-in-law Srivalli who became like a mother to me always encourages me to be the best version of me.”
He also spoke about his wife Rama, who is a costume designer for Rajamouli’s films.
“My wife Rama… she’s the costume designer of my films but more than that she is the designer of my life. If she’s not here I am not here today. To my daughters, their smiles are enough to light my life up.”
Before signing out, he gave a shout out to his motherland.
“And finally to my motherland India, Mera Bharat Mahan – Jai hind.”
‘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.
James Cameron watched RRR twice
Indian filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli feels on top of the world as he shared that award-winning Hollywood director James Cameron spent 10 minutes analysing his film ‘RRR’.
Rajamouli took to Twitter, where he shared two pictures where he is seen sharing screen space with Cameron, who has made films such as ‘Titanic’ and the ‘Avatar’ franchise.
In the first image, the two maestros are seen having a discussion.
The second image show, Rajamouli holding Cameron’s hands as the two talk.
He captioned the image: “The great James Cameron watched ‘RRR’.. He liked it so much that he recommended to his wife Suzy and watched it again with her. Sir I still cannot believe you spent a whole 10 minutes with us analyzing our movie. As you said I AM ON TOP OF THE WORLD… Thank you both.”
Rajamouli had earlier had a fanboy moment as he met Steven Spielberg at what ‘The Hollywood Reporter’ Boris Kyt described as an A-list star-stuffed celebration thrown by Universal at West Hollywood’s famous Sunset Tower Hotel.
“I just met GOD!!!” Rajamouli had captioned the image of meeting Speilberg.
