The new video of SS Rajamouli, in which he admitted that his ‘choice of words was not good’, has now appeared online. Many now praise the filmmaker for accepting his mistake. In the clip, he spoke about his old comment comparing Hrithik and Prabhas during a recent interview on the red carpet of the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.

Speaking at the event, SS Rajamouli said: “It was a long, long time ago… I think about 15-16 years ago. But yes, my choice of words was wrong, I must admit. It was never my intention to demote him, I have a lot of respect for him. It’s a long time ago.”

Rajamouli had claimed that Hrithik stood for ‘nothing’ Prabhas in the old clip, which recently resurfaced on Reddit: “When Dhoom 2 came out two years ago, I wondered why only Bollywood can make such quality films. Don’t we have heroes like Hrithik Roshan? I’ve just seen Billa’s songs, poster and trailer and there’s only one thing I can say. Hrithik Roshan is not like Prabhas. I would like to thank Meher Ramesh (director) for bringing Telugu cinema to Hollywood level,” he had said.

SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus RRR is one of the biggest Indian blockbusters of recent times. On 10 January, the Telugu film won a Golden Globe award for Best Original Song for Naatu Naatu. Director SS Rajamouli and music composer MM Keeravani attended the award ceremony with actors Ram Charan and Jr. NTR. Photos and videos of team RRR’s red carpet interviews and winning moments from their brief interaction with singer Rihanna at the event were shared online.

RRR was not chosen as India’s official entry for the Best International Feature Film category at Oscars 2023, despite the Telugu film receiving both commercial and critical acclaim. Pan Nalin’s Last Film Show has been sent as India’s official Oscar entry for the Best International Film category.
