SS Rajamouli’s new video where he admitted that his ‘choice of words was not good’ has now hit the internet. Many are now praising the director 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.

SS Rajamouli said at the event, “It was way, way back… I think about 15-16 years back. But yeah, my choice of words wasn’t good, I have to admit. It was never my intention to put him down, I have a lot of respect for him. It’s far behind.”

Rajamouli had claimed that Hrithik was ‘nothing’ in front of him Prabas in the old clip, which recently resurfaced on Reddit, “When Dhoom 2 released two years ago, I wondered why only Bollywood can make such quality films. Don’t we have heroes like Hrithik Roshan? I just saw Billa’s songs, poster and trailer, and I can only say one thing. Hrithik Roshan is nothing in front of Prabhas. I would like to thank Meher Ramesh (director) for taking Telugu cinema to the level of Hollywood,” 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 the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for Naatu Naatu. Director SS Rajamouli and music composer MM Keeravani attended the awards along with actors Ram Charan and Jr NTR. Photos and videos of the RRR team’s red carpet interviews and winning moments from their brief interaction with singer Rihanna at the event were shared online.

RRR was not selected as India’s official entry for the Best International Feature Film category at the 2023 Oscars, despite the Telugu film receiving commercial as well as critical acclaim. Pan Nalin’s Last Film Show was submitted as India’s official Oscar nomination for the Best International Film category.
