Many were disappointed when Hindi film Newton was chosen above Baahubali for the Oscar Awards 2018. Naturally, many felt that Rajamouli was hugely disappointed. But the master filmmaker has finally responded and cleared his view.
“(I am) Not at all (disappointed at losing out the race to Oscars this year). When I make a film, I never think about awards. It is not my aim. The aim is to first satisfy me with the story and then next is to see that it reaches the maximum number of audience and makes money for everyone who has put their life in it,” Rajamouli told IANS here.
“That is my most important thing. If awards come, then I am happy. If they don’t, I don’t mind that because they are not at all my criteria” told Rajamouli to the press.
