SS Rajamouli has done what many Bollywood filmmakers couldn’t. The man who possesses a plethora of talent has signed an American talent agency, which in turn means he will make his Hollywood debut soon.
RRR to make Hollywood debut soon
The ace filmmaker has already left celebrities like Russo Brothers and James Gunn – who are eager to collaborate with him – impressed with his film RRR. So much so, that when India snubbed the Ram Charan and Jr NTR starrer movie as its official entry for Oscars, Hollywood rallied for it.
The director of Don’t Look Up, a film that bagged an Oscar nomination last year, Adam McKay has been rooting for RRR.
This is a travesty.
But let’s make sure it gets a best picture nom.

Calling India’s decision a travesty, Adam Mckay, known for movies like The Big Short and Don’t Look Up wrote on Twitter, “This is a travesty. But let’s make sure it gets the best picture nom. Can we do a screening at the Rose Bowl? (How amazing would that be?)”.
In the midst of so much love that he has got, American talent agency called CAA (Creative Artists Agency) has signed SS Rajamouli.
“In a coup for the agency, CAA has signed in-demand Indian filmmaker SS Rajamouli,” reported Deadline.
The agency is known for handling Hollywood celebs including Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, Scarlett Johansson, Zendaya, Ryan Murphy and Reese Witherspoon among others.
Meanwhile, SS Rajamouli is currently working on a film starring Mahesh Babu. The movie will reportedly also stars Alia Bhatt.
At an event, Rajamouli as per Pinkvilla, said, “My next film with Mahesh Babu will be a globetrotting action adventure. It’s going to be a kind of James Bond or Indiana Jones film with Indian roots.”
Rajamouli also reacted to criticism against RRR. Some people felt that the movie showed Britishers in bad light.
Clarifying the same, he said RRR is a movie not a lesson on history. “At the beginning of the film you see the disclaimer card. Even if you miss it, it’s not a history lesson. It’s a story. The audience in general understands it.”
“If a British is playing the villain, they understand that I am not saying all the Britishers are villains. If my heroes are Indians, they understand that all Indians are heroes,” he said as quoted by Indian Express.
This comes after a historian had slammed RRR for showing Britishers in bad light.
