Recently, RRR picked up a Golden Globe at the awards with a trophy going to Kala Bhairava, MM Keeravani and Rahul Sipligunj for their song Naatu Naatu, beating singers Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift. Rihanna happened to be at the awards that night and as she exited the event, she had offered congratulations to the RRR team.
Recently, SS Rajamouli met filmmaker Steven Spielberg, someone he described as ‘God’ in an Instagram post that featured pictures of their encounter at a Hollywood party in the US. Sharing their pictures, he had written in his Instagram caption, “I just met GOD!!!” Earlier, Rajamouli had met James Cameron in the US, and shared their photos. He had tweeted on January 16, “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 analysing our movie. As you said I AM ON TOP OF THE WORLD… Thank you both.”
RRR bagged two awards at the 28th Annual Critics’ Choice Award held on Sunday in Los Angeles – the best feature film in a foreign language and the best song. The film features Jr NTR and Ram Charan in lead roles, as well as actors Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in cameos. Last year, Team RRR had launched a full-throttle awards campaign in the US after India had selected Pan Nalin’s The Last Show as the country’s official entry to Oscars 2023.
