RRR is currently on an award haul after their win at the Golden Globe Awards, Critics Choice Awards, and LA Critics Circle.

NTR on Rajamouli's vision
NTR said that he felt that SS Rajamouli was aiming big with RRR. Calling him a rare phenomenon, he said, "With each film, he's only gotten better. I feel that 'RRR' was his plan of taking the West.

Following the criticisms, NTR indirectly addressed them by stating that the only difference between Indian Cinema and Hollywood is time zone and accent. He stated, "We are just divided by time zones and a little bit of an accent. Other than that, what an actor goes through in the West is exactly the same process as in the East."
