en Bollywood News EXCLUSIVE: SS Rajamouli speaks about the major difference between a star and a director

SS Rajamouli has hit a hattrick with RRR. The maverick filmmaker shattered box office records with his recently released film RRR starring Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the lead. The film also starred Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in pivotal roles. Rajamouli is also the force behind the magnum opus Baahubali- The Beginning and Baahubali-The Conclusion. Now, with the success of RRR, Rajamouli has become a superstar in his own way. In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, SS Rajamouli said that while he is aware of people watching films because of his name, but believes that there are differences between a movie star and a director.

Talking about the difference between onscreen stars and directors, Rajamouli said, “I'm aware that I have a certain number of fans, I'm aware that they want to come to the movie, looking at my name. I'm aware of it. I'm not saying I'm not aware of it. But the difference between a star and a director is that they come to my films assuming that I'll tell them a good story. They don't come to watch me they want to come to watch my story. But with the star is that they don't care about the story, they want to come to watch the star himself. That is a whole lot of difference.

“So one or two flops, my yardstick may be thrown out, but even 10 flops, the star will still be a star because they're coming to watch him and not the story. That's the difference between the stars and director,” he added.


Meanwhile, SS Rajamouli who is still basking in the success of RRR, will be soo working on a film starring Mahesh Babu. The film will be made on a large scale and is an action-adventure movie.
