'RRR' actress Alia Bhatt penned Rajamouli’s profile

Pride of the Nation maverick filmmaker SS Rajamouli has been named by TIME magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People of 2023. He is the first Indian filmmaker to be featured on the prestigious list. 

The list has been divided into six categories – Icons, Pioneers, Titans, Artists, Leaders and Innovators.

Rajamouli was featured in the ‘Pioneers’ section of the list alongside other names like Doja Cat, Bella Hadid, Sam Altman, and MRBEAST, among others.

‘RRR’ actress Alia Bhatt penned his profile and wrote, "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 cultures. But he gets that—and he unites us through his movies."

Apart from him, King Of Romance Shah Rukh Khan has also made it to the list. Time Magazine included Shah Rukh Khan in its list of Icons. Actress Deepika Padukone, who made her Bollywood debut with SRK’s 'Om Shanti Om', penned a heartwarming note describing her relationship with him.

She wrote,  "I’ll never forget the first time I met Shah Rukh Khan. I had just arrived in Mumbai from Bangalore with one suitcase and a dream. The next thing I knew, I was sitting in his house! I was being considered for a role in a film opposite him. It’s been 16 years since. What makes our relationship special is the love, trust, and respect we have for one another. Shah Rukh Khan will forever be known as one of the greatest actors of all time. But what truly sets him apart is his mind, his chivalry, his generosity. The list goes on …"

"For someone who has known him intimately and cares for him deeply, 150 words will never do justice to the phenomenon that is Shah Rukh Khan", wrote the Project K actress as she concluded the note. 

With this, they have become the only two Indians to make it to the list. For those unaware, ‘Time 100’ is an annual listicle of the 100 most influential people in the world, assembled by the American news magazine Time. It was first published in 1999.
