In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Rajamouli said, “I make films for money, I make films for the audiences. I don’t make films for critical acclaim. RRR is a commercial film, and once my film commercially does well, I’m very happy. Awards are an extension to it. It is for the hard work that my unit put in and I’m happy for that."

RRR song ‘Naatu Naatu’ has been shortlisted for Best Original Song at Oscars 2023 whereas Chello Show has been shortlisted in the Best International Film category. The nominations will be announced on January 24 by Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams.
