Alia Bhatt Was ‘Starstruck’ When She Met SS Rajamouli At The Baahubali 2 Premiere; Here’s What Happened
Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt worked with SS Rajamouli in RRR which won Oscar for its hit track Naatu Naatu.
Alia Bhatt recently praised director SS Rajamouli, who was named one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2023. In RRR, the actress collaborated with the director. In a personal note to him, she included details about her first meeting with him and the most crucial piece of advice she received from him.
Alia wrote, “The first time I met SS Rajamouli was at the preview of Baahubali 2. We were all extremely starstruck. And even while I was watching the movie, I was like, ‘Oh my God, what a dream it would be to work with this director. Lo and behold, the dream came true.’”
She added, “Being directed by him in RRR was like going to school all over again. He knows the audience he’s serving. He knows what beats to hit, what turns to take. I call him the master storyteller, because he genuinely loves the flair and abandon of stories. And he brings us together. India is a massive country with diverse demographics, tastes, and culture. But he gets that—and he unites us through his movies.”
On a closing note she added, “I once asked him for advice on acting. He said, “Whatever choice you make, just do that with love. Because even if the film doesn’t work, the audience will see love in your eyes for what you’re doing.”
