RRR: SS Rajamouli OPENS UP on movie’s sequel and box office clash with Gangubai Kathiawadi

SS Rajamouli’s period drama RRR starring Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn is one of the most awaited movies of 2022. Ahead of the film’s release, the makers have already started promotional campaigns. The makers have tied up with PVR cinemas, which will now be referred to as ‘PVRRR’ for the next few months.

During the press conference, when asked about the sequel of the movie SS Rajamouli said, “See when I made Bahubali, the film itself, the story itself warranted two parts, in RRR the whole story comes within one film. I don’t believe in making the film’s one part, two part, three part for the marketing, for the business, it doesn’t work, it’s a dishonest way of making films and I don’t want to make films that way.”

When asked about the box office clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, SS Rajamouli said that both the films will find its audience. “The clash won’t hamper the business. Even if four films come together, if they are good, people are going to come to watch all of them. There are multiple instances in the past when this has happened. Because of the COVID times and everything being shut for one and a half year, a bottleneck is expected. But if your content is good, it doesn’t matter how many films come together. People are going to come. They’ll be spoilt for choice,” the director said.

I certainly hope and wish all the films are good, all the films make money, make the audience excited and happy. This is the time where we can’t say my film has to do well, that film can’t do well. This is the time for all of us to come together and say, think and feel that all films should make money,” he added.
