Responding to the same, the American director asserted, “As I was watching the film, initially [it] felt like ‘Oh my God,’ he’s picturizing his own mom as not so good. I was empathising with the father,” Rajamouli said. “But as we progress, we understand the difficulty of the situation – no one is bad. It is not about a person being good or bad. It’s about following your heart and following your duty.”

“There are no villains in the story. It’s a story about love. It’s a story about a young boy, much like myself, named Sammy Fabelman, who falls in love with movie cameras and makes movies with his neighbourhood friends, which eventually is going to lead him to a career. And it’s about following your heart and not sacrificing yourself and your own happiness and your own future, to make others around you safe and comfortable.”

The 79-year-old director further added, “My mom took life into her own hands. And she had a huge, beautiful personality. But she was always very honest about what she needed, and what she wanted from this life. And she took it for herself. But she still brought all of us along with her. So we never felt abandoned by the choices that she was making.”
