Rajamouli responded to the praise by saying: “I can almost get up from the chair and do a dance – it means a lot to me.”
Speaking about the performances in the film, Spielberg told Rajamouli, “I thought the performances of Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Alia (Bhatt) and all of the cast, and my girl Alison Duddy, in your movie, I was kind of happy how you ended her story as she was so heinous as was her husband, were amazing. It was a beautiful visual style and extraordinary to look at and experience. So, congratulations for RRR.”
Rajamouli had earlier said that he had met "god" when he met Spielberg.
