SS Rajamouli brought Indian films under the radar of world cinema with Baahubali and he is currently basking in the glory of his recent offering RRR, which is bankrolled by DVV Danayya under the banner of DVV Entertainment. But now he is upset as Netflix only aired Hindi version of his directorial venture RRR. The Telugu-language film RRR starring Young Tiger Jr NTR and mega power star Ram Charan was also released in Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada languages. While interacting with Hollywood director duo Russo Brothers, Rajamouli opened up about a complaint he has against OTT Giant Netflix.
RRR helmer Rajamouli said, “First of all, I am actually angry with Netflix because they took only Hindi version, not the rest of the four- Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. So that is, I have a complaint against them. Second thing is, yes, I was surprised with the reception from west.”
He added, “When RRR came out on Netflix and people started watching the movie and the word of mouth started spreading and the critics started giving out good reviews for the film.”
Rajamouli thanked Netflix by saying, “Yes, I was really really surprised. And yes, it would not have been possible without Netflix.”
