‘RRR’ filmmaker bags Best Director At The New York Film Critics Circle 

RRR’s craze is unstoppable! Stalwart Rajamouli is currently enjoying the success of ‘RRR’ in Japan. The film has grossed over JPY 209 million (Rs 11 crore approx). and now Rajamouli has added another feather in his cap. The maverick won the ‘Best Director’ at The New York Film Critics Circle on Friday (December 2). Previously legendary filmmakers including David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, Ang Lee, Woody Allen, Ingmar Bergman, François Truffaut, Federico Fellini, David Lean, and Alfred Hitchcock were bestowed with the prestigious award.

According to the official description, The New York Film Critics Circle was founded in 1935, and is the oldest critics group in the US, with members from newspapers, magazines, and online publications. The group will hand out its awards at a dinner in early January. The Circle’s awards are often viewed as harbingers of the Oscar nominations, which are announced each February. The Circle’s awards are also viewed, perhaps more accurately, as a principled alternative to the Oscars. 

For the unversed, ‘RRR’ was not selected as India’s official entry for the prestigious Academy Awards aka Oscars. However, RRR's US distributor Dylan Marchetti, president of Variance Films, launched a full awards campaign for the action drama. 

Apart from this, the die-hard ‘RRR’ fans have one more reason to rejoice as Rajamouli, has finally confirmed the sequel for Jr NTR-Ram Charan starrer. Speaking at an international event Rajamouli said, “My father is story writer for all my films. We discussed a bit about RRR 2, and he's working on the story.”

‘RRR’ is a fictional period action drama that features Jr NTR and Ram Charan as fearless tribal leaders Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sita Rama Raju, respectively, who fought for the freedom of India from the British empire. It also stars Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, and Shriya Saran in pivotal roles. The much-loved film collected Rs 1,200 crore globally.
