Avatar's James Cameron and RRR's Rajamouli spoke to each other at Critics Choice Awards 2023. The two of the biggest filmmakers of Hollywood and Bollywood shared their love for cinema and spoke about their films. An overwhelmed Rajamouli turned to Twitter to share his excitement. He posted photos of him and Keeravani meeting Cameron and his wife at the event.
The Indian filmmaker shared he feels on top of the world as he was in the company of award-winning Hollywood director James Cameron and spent 10 minutes analysing his film 'RRR'. Rajamouli took to Twitter, where he shared two pictures where he is seen sharing screen space with Cameron, who has made films such as 'Titanic' and the 'Avatar' franchise. In the first image, the two maestros are seen having a discussion. The second image show, Rajamouli holding Cameron's hands as the two talk.
He captioned the image: "The great James Cameron watched 'RRR'.. He liked it so much that he recommended to his wife Suzy and watched it again with her. Sir I still cannot believe you spent a whole 10 minutes with us analyzing our movie. As you said I AM ON TOP OF THE WORLD... Thank you both."
Naatu Naatu's composer who won Critics Choice Awards and Golden Globe Awards for his song, met the filmmaker and shared about it on Twitter. "The great James Cameron has watched RRR twice and gave feedback on my score !!! Ocean full of excitement," he wrote.
Rajamouli had earlier had a fanboy moment as he met Steven Spielberg at what 'The Hollywood Reporter' Boris Kyt described as an A-list star-stuffed celebration thrown by Universal at West Hollywood's famous Sunset Tower Hotel.
"I just met GOD!!!" Rajamouli had captioned the image of meeting Speilberg.
