Hollywood directors describe SS Rajamouli as 'THE great'


Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, popularly known as the Russo Brothers, have been in the news over 'The Gray Man'. The 200-million dollar Netflix Original has been streaming since July 21.

The news is that the Russo Brothers and SS Rajamouli have been interviewed for Netflix by former journalist Rajeev Masand. The three directors shared their views on the action genre. During the chat, the 'RRR' director remarked that a vast majority of the audience would want to watch an action movie first if given a chance between a mid-range actioner and a love story.

Plugging the interview, the Russo Brothers tweeted, "Such an honor getting to meet THE great S.S. Rajamouli."

The Hollywood directors are amazed by 'RRR', which has clocked over 47 million hours worldwide on Netflix. During the chat, Rajamouli was humble enough to ask the host not to put him and Russo Brothers on the same pedestal. "They are much bigger than me. I have a mound of success while they have a mountain of success," the 'Baahubali' maker said.

In the course of the interview, Rajamouli said that a good story is a good story for everyone, but he had never thought he could make films for Western sensibilities. "I never believed myself," he said, expressing surprise over RRR's stupendous success on Netflix among the Western audience.
