Rajamouli clarifies his old comment about Hrithik Roshan
In a video by Reuters, via ANI, Rajamouli had addressed his comment about Hrithik Roshan on the red carpet of the New York Film Critics Circle Awards and said, “It was long, long back – I think some 15-16 years back. But yeah, my choice of words of mine wasn’t good, I must admit it. My intention was never to degrade him, I respect him a lot. It is long back.”
Fans lauded SS Rajamouli for addressing his comment and accepting his mistake.
For the uninitiated, Rajamouli made his comment at the press even for filmmaker Meher Ramesh’s film Billa. In the old video that went viral on social media, Rajamouli reportedly said, “When Dhoom 2 released two years ago, I wondered why only Bollywood can make such quality films. Don’t we have heroes like Hrithik Roshan? I just saw the songs, poster and trailer of Billa, and I can only say one thing. Hrithik Roshan is nothing in front of Prabhas. I’d like to thank Meher Ramesh for taking Telugu cinema to Hollywood level.”
On the other hand, Rajamouli’s film RRR, starring Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, and Ajay Devgn, won Golden Globe award for Best Original Song, Naatu Naatu. Composer MM Keeravani accepted the award on stage.
