SS Rajamouli made India proud with his latest blockbuster RRR. Besides the film’s international success with its recent Golden Globes win and CCA award, Rajamouli has also impressed one of the visionary filmmakers, James Cameron. Recently, James and Rajamouli met after Golden Globes Awards, and a video of their conversation proves Rajamouli’s worldwide popularity.
A 3 minute video captures the director of Avatar: The Way of Water discussing Ram Charan-Jr NTR at length. During the meeting, James was accompanied by his wife, Suzy Amis, and the director discussed RRR with Rajamouli with excitement like a child. Rajamouli seemed mesmerized by Cameron’s reaction. Decoding RRR with Rajamouli, the ace director said, “It’s just such a feeling watching your characters. And your setup (of) the fire, water, story, reveal after reveal, then moving on to the backstory of why he does what he does, the twists and friendships. It’s just so powerful.” James called RRR an all round entertainer: “I love that you threw the whole thing out, it’s just the full show… I love that. I can only imagine the pride and strength your country and your home crowd … you have to feel on top of the world.” Before ending the conversation, James even invited him to work in Hollywood. “And one thing… if you ever want to make a movie here, let’s talk,” James said, leaving Rajamouli in awe.
