en Bollywood News Anurag Kashyap on West trying to reach out to S.S. Rajamouli; says, “If they like something, they take it away”

Anurag Kashyap shares his views on S.S. Rajamouli.

S.S. Rajamouli and his directorial RRR has been making headlines for all the right reasons. The film not only gained fame in India, but also in the West. RRR recently bagged the prestigious Golden Globe Award in the Best Original Song category for 'Naatu Naatu' and a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. The film featured Ram Charan and Jr NTR along with Alia Bhatt.

Recently in an interaction with New18, Anurag Kashyap talks about why RRR was a success in West. He said, “Movies from down South are still grounded and they still look like Indian films. RRR is all about its storytelling and for the global audience, ‘Naatu Naatu’ is a visually incredible song because it’s rooted.”

'Naatu Naatu' was shot for 12 days in Ukraine. Anurag while acknowledging that 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 number of 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.”

Anurag also expressed that according to him Hollywood might soon approach S.S. Rajamouli, he said, “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 like 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. But that’s what they do. If they like something, they take it away. They’ve been stealing from so many countries, not just from India. They stole Pakistani people from Pakistan and Japanese people from Japan, who created a blast. They also stole Bong Joon-ho (filmmaker of Parasita fame) from South Korea.”

“If the West had seen Eega before, he would have been celebrated much before. They will definitely see more and more Indian films now. But now, they are busy watching old films of Rajamouli.” “They still have a colonial mindset. Woh log humaara Kohinoor hamesha leke bhaagenge. We can’t do anything about it. But RRR will definitely benefit Indian films and help the West see our cinema in a newer light. That way, I think it’s a massive success for us,” he further added.
