Without a doubt, one of the best filmmakers alive is SS Rajamouli. With Baahubali (2015), he re-introduced Indian films to the global film community. Now, his most recent film, RRR (2022), is also receiving praise from throughout the world and is a favourite among Western movie stars. Rajamouli has since spoken out about a complaint he has towards Netflix while conversing with the Hollywood director duo Russo Brothers.
Rajamouli quipped during the conversation, “First of all, I am actually angry with Netflix because they took only the Hindi version, not the rest of the four. So that is, I have a complaint against them. Second thing is, yes, I was surprised with the reception from the west.”
“A good story is a good story for everyone. But I didn’t think I could make films for Western sensibilities. I never believed myself. So when it came out on Netflix and people started watching it and the word of mouth started spreading and the critics started giving out good reviews for that,” he added.
He further clarified that he is very grateful to Netflix, saying, “Yes, I was really really surprised. And yes, it wouldn’t have been possible without Netflix. For that, I have great regard for them.”
One of the biggest films released in 2022 was RRR, which made Rs 1200 crore globally and rose to the top of the list of Indian movies on Netflix after being seen for more than 47 million hours globally.
