SS Rajamouli’s RRR was finally released last week, and it seems it was worth the wait. The Jr. NTR and Ram Charan starrer is doing exceptionally well at the box office. According to reports, the film has collected 472 crore worldwide after its first weekend. Karan Johar has hailed Rajamouli and called him the greatest Indian filmmaker. He was speaking at ABP News’ Ideas of India. He said that no one could take that mantle away from him. "He is enormous and gigantic, just like his brand and his films," said Karan. He also said that the Hindi film industry is being inspired every week by not just Hollywood but also within the parameters of India. "Look at the numbers of RRR," said Karan.
Meanwhile, the film is being talked about and appreciated. Pushpa director Sukumar penned a heartfelt note for SS Rajamouli in Telugu. Its English translation read, "Even though we are next to you, we have to run to reach you." Even though we are in the sky, we need to lift our heads to look at you. The only difference between you and us, Rajamouli, is that you can make a film like this and we can only watch it. "
RRR also stars Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, Samuthirakani, Ray Stevenson, Olivia Morris, and Alison Doody in supporting roles. It is based on the lives of Telugu freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. The film was all set to be released in January but was delayed due to the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
