“Rajamouli may leave Indian Cinema”; RRR director’s next goal is DC and Marvel

Bollywood’s top filmmaker has now expressed his fear that Hollywood might steal RRR helmer SS Rajamouli from the Indian cinema to work for their DC and Marvel universe.

Rajamouli for DC and Marvels movie

The smashing success of RRR has brought several admirers for SS Rajamouli’s work globally including American cinema veteran James Cameron. In fact, the ‘Avataar’ director is so impressed with Rajamouli that he even offered to support him if he ever wants to make a film in Hollywood. Not just, Cameron many other directors from the west have shown interest to work with the greatest Indian filmmaker.


With this, Anurag Kashyap has now confessed his worries that the west might steal SS Rajamouli from Indian cinema. The Dev D filmmaker calls him a perfect fit for the DC and Marvel cinematic universes and that he can make a big difference.

“Everybody in the West is trying to reach out to Rajamouli now. He’s the kind of filmmaker who can make a massive difference. He’s the perfect director for a DC or a Marvel film. Conversations about collaborations between India and the West have been going on for a very long time. But with SS Rajamouli, it wouldn’t be a collaboration. What will happen is that they will steal him from us,” Anurag told News18.

Naatu Naatu song from RRR

Meanwhile, Naatu Naatu song from RRR has been nominated in the Best Original Song category at the 95th Academy Awards. The Telugu song has been composed by MM Keeravani and sung by Kaala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj. It recently won the best song award at both Golden Globe 2023 and the 28th edition of the Critics’ Choice Awards. RRR also won the Critics Choice award for best foreign language film.


Speaking about the song Naatu Naatu, which was shot in Ukraine for 12 consecutive days, Anurag said, “It’s so hard to pull [something like that] off. I would give up right there thinking that shooting for a song sequence would take me so many days. And here’s a director who pursues a sequence and takes as many days as required to shoot it! That takes a lot of vision, courage, and nerves of steel. And that has translated.”
