When we interview filmmakers about their films, it’s nearly always ahead of release. Looking back on the project, but looking forward to the reaction from critics and audience members alike. But in the case of S.S. Rajamouli, who we had the huge pleasure of speaking to this week, his latest film, the epic-scale blockbuster RRR has been out a fortnight, ad what’s more, it topped the global box office. So needless to say we were thrilled to discuss this wonderful success with the man behind it, as this true master of his craft, delved into his process, and emotional response to the reaction to his movie – which he dubs his very finest to date.

We of course speak about collaborating with the likes of Jr NTR, Ram Charan and Alia Bhatt, while he also speaks about his own career aspirations, and his thoughts on one day working alongside a streaming giant to create a movie. Don’t miss this interview in its entirety, as Rajamouli speaks so brilliantly about his work, and it’s work that inspires millions.
