RRR director SS Rajamouli reveals how Aamir Khan’s Lagaan taught him to connect with people
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan recently joined filmmaker SS Rajamouli and his actors Alia Bhatt, NTR Jr and Ram Charan at a promotional event of their upcoming film RRR.
After winning hearts of audiences all over the world with his masterpieces Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, ace filmmaker SS Rajamouli is all set to blow us away with his upcoming film RRR . Starring South superstars NTR Jr and Ram Charan in the lead along with Bollywood beauty Alia Bhatt , the period action drama will arrive in theatres this Friday. Well, recently the team made a pit stop in Delhi during their promotional spree. Bollywood’s Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan also joined the team of RRR for a fun interaction.
During the event, while talking to Rajamouli, Aamir stated, “Baahubali 2 was the biggest hit of Indian cinema. It’s truly a pan-India film. How do you do that? How do you connect with so many people across the country?” To this, the filmmaker replied that Aamir’s Lagaan inspired him. Indian Express quoted Rajamouli saying, “Let me frankly tell you. I am not saying this just because you are here. The first movie that was accepted across India was Lagaan. It was just in Hindi.”
The filmmaker went on to explain, “Baahubali was in four languages. And RRR is in five languages. The way the entire country connected with Laagan made a big impression on me. I learned from Lagaan that if I make my story based on basic human emotions, I have a chance to connect with more people.” Aamir’s 2001 musical sports film, helmed by filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker, is undoubtedly one of the most iconic Bollywood films ever made in the history of Indian cinema. Who would have imagined that the movie had such a huge impact on Rajamouli, one of the most sought-after filmmakers of the industry today!
