SS Rajamouli Talks about the Impact of the Lockdown
SS Rajamouli, one of the biggest directors of Tollywood, talks about coping during the lockdown
Like everyone else, the maverick movie-making magician S S Rajamouli is currently confined to his home, somehow trying to keep the post-production work on his new eagerly awaited film, RRR, going. Speaking exclusively to this writer from his home Rajamouli says, “We are in an unprecedented situation. I just want to appeal to people to take the government instructions seriously. Many are doing that. Few people are not taking it seriously which can cause serious damage to them and the whole society.”
Rajamouli also wishes the public to be more thoughtful towards the administrative sector working on the roads to combat the virus. Says Raja. “The health workers and the police are our protection force. They are our Army in this war against the Corona Virus. They are risking their lives everyday to keep our country safe. They seriously are in need of masks, sanitizers and personal protection equipments. Please make donations in whatever capacity you can. “
As far as the release of his film RRR is concerned, Raja says the health of the nation comes first. “Of course I am restless! But this is an unprecedented situation. This is no time to keep worrying. I strongly believe every challenge that is thrown at you has advantages if you look carefully. I just stay alert and positive.”
RRR stars Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn along with Tollywood superstars Ram Charan and NT Rama Rao jr. It will release in 2021.
