South star Nani, who is fondly called a Natural star by his fans and admirers, is currently busy promoting his first pan-India film, Dasara. In fact, he, along with the Dasara team, launched the trailer of the upcoming flick in Lucknow. Recently, while talking about his film, Nani also commented on SS Rajamouli’s RRR setting a benchmark and how it was not wrong for the director to call the Ram Charan and Jr NTR starrer a Telugu film.
Nani supports SS Rajamouli for his ‘RRR is not a Bollywood film’; says, “It is not wrong”
It happened during his interaction with the Free Press Journal, where he was asked to share his take on SS Rajamouli calling RRR a Telugu film and not a Bollywood film. Nani responded by saying, “It is not wrong. It is a Telugu film primarily. If a film is made in Telugu, you can't say it is made in Hindi or the rest of the country. We are in a generation where whatever you say will be quoted wrong. If you even say the nicest or most positive thing, it can be perceived as wrong.”
For the unversed, while speaking at the RRR screening held by the Directors Guild of America, Rajamouli has stated, “RRR is not a Bollywood film; it is a Telugu film from the south of India, where I come from.”
As the conversation progressed further the Jersey star also explained how RRR has given global validation to the South Indian film industry. He said, “More than setting a benchmark, Rajamouli sir has opened our eyes. Earlier, we thought, no one will watch if we release a Telugu film in other Southern states but he proved it. Then, we thought, who will watch our films across the country but Rajamouli proved it with Baahubali. And now we won an Oscar for RRR. He made us a little smart in dreaming big (laughs).
Coming back to Dasara, helmed by debutant director Srikanth Odela, it is slated to release on March 30. The ensemble star cast of the film also includes Keerthy Suresh and Deekshith Shetty.
