Anurag Kashyap (filmmaker): “I’ve been saying it from the beginning how much the West loves RRR. It’s not just validation for him, its great news for cinema from India as it brings attention to everyone. My congratulations to him.”
Anurag Kashyap, Hansal Mehta, Prabhu Dheva and others react to SS Rajamouli being honoured by the New York Critics Circle
Hansal Mehta (filmmaker): “This is definitely something to be proud of and maybe one more step towards an Oscar nomination.”
Pritish Nandy (producer, writer, critic, and analyst): “I am not surprised. As movies go global, the power and magic of what different cultures are producing is bound to attract the Western world which has been till now isolated within the boundaries of its own creative universe. Suddenly they have discovered new experiences via the coming of OTT which offers everyone instant access to global content. One day they are taken in by Narcos from Colombia. Another day Parasite from Korea sweeps them off their feet. Then Roma from Mexico bags the highest nominations at the Academy Awards since Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon from China. Money Heist from Spain. Squid Game from South Korea. Fauda from Israel. All are huge successes. It’s now India’s time. Rajamouli may have opened the gates of the world to a new wave of South Indian cinema emerging as the new craze in the world market. It has already taken India by storm and overshadowed traditional Bollywood. Now there are new worlds to conquer and clearly, Rajamouli is leading the charge. It’s a fantastic moment. Time to celebrate the rediscovery of South Indian cinema as a major art form, and hopefully as a new driver of the content market across the world.”
Prabhu Dheva (actor, choreographer, filmmaker): “Incredible! Such an honour for us all. Superb, superb, he is the correct person to get it; his hard work and passion have paid off. It’s just terrific.”
