Rajamouli reacts to an old comment

RRR director SS Rajamouli recently addressed remarks he made about Hrithik Roshan a few years ago, which did not go well with the actor’s fans. The filmmaker said that Hrithik is ‘nothing’ in front of Prabhas. Now, Rajamouli has confessed that his choice of words at the time was wrong and that he did not mean to ‘degrade’ Hrithik.


In an interview on the red carpet of the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, Rajamouli said, ‘It was long, long back — I think some 15-16 years back. But yeah, my choice of words wasn’t good, I must admit it. My intention was never to degrade him, I respect him a lot.’

The Old video

Rajamouli had earlier claimed that Hrithik was ‘nothing’ in front of Prabhas in the old clip, which recently resurfaced on Reddit, “When Dhoom 2 released two years ago, I wondered why only Bollywood can make such quality films. Don’t we have heroes like Hrithik Roshan? I just saw the songs, poster and trailer of Billa, and I can only say one thing. Hrithik Roshan is nothing in front of Prabhas. I’d like to thank Meher Ramesh (director) for taking Telugu cinema to the Hollywood level,” he had said.

RRR is one of the biggest Indian blockbusters in recent times. On January 10, the Oan India film won a Golden Globe award for Best Original Song for Naatu Naatu. Director SS Rajamouli and music composer MM Keeravani attended the awards with actors Ram Charan and Jr NTR.
