There is a mood of celebration in the country since the song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the movie RRR won the Oscar in the category of best original song. V Vijayendra Prasad, father of SS Rajamouli and scriptwriter of the film ‘RRR’, has also expressed his happiness on this occasion. V Vijayendra Prasad believes that a glimpse of India’s cultural heritage is now reaching the entire world through cinema. Speaking to ‘News18’, he also recalled the conversation he had with PM Modi where the topic of ‘how the world should see India’ was discussed.
The creator of the Oscar-winning film says he met Prime Minister Narendra Modi before the Oscars. He said that I expected our meeting with the Prime Minister to be very short, but when the conversation started, 40 minutes had passed. In these 40 minutes we discussed only one issue from which perspective the world should see India.
V Vijayendra said I am impressed by PM Modi’s vision. He said that I asked the Prime Minister how I would help you in this work, but the Prime Minister replied that you have started working in this field through your films. You have shown the whole world a glimpse of Indianness through South Indian films.
Vijayendra Prasad said that Rajamouli got the same advice from PM Modi that famous filmmaker Steven Spielberg gave him before the Oscars. He said that the famous Hollywood filmmaker said that he did not need to mix western culture in movies to get the reception of westerns. Indian culture is very rich and the focus should be on this while making the film.
SS Rajamouli’s father and writer of films like ‘Baahubali’, Vijayendra told ANI, “I wanted our films to be a hit in Hollywood. Despite having so much content, we couldn’t impress outside India. Now our film made it to the Oscars and won the award. This is a win for the entire Indian film fraternity.”

Vijayendra continued, “My son Rajamouli often asks me in what way India is the richest in the world. I told him we are the richest in terms of history. Stay focused on your culture.” Vijayendra said three different people told Rajamouli the same thing. Stay connected to your culture.
In the conversation with ANI, Vijayendra also mentioned the Prime Minister’s call before it was sent to the Rajya Sabha. He said that on July 6, 2022 there was a call from the PMO that they wanted to give me some responsibility. On July 7, 2022, I received another call from the PMO, I was told that PM Modi wanted to speak to me. Modi ji started speaking in Hindi but I told him that my Hindi is not that good. Then he started speaking fluent English. Prime Minister Modi offered me a Rajya Sabha seat through the phone itself.
The creators of the films revealed that we will also make a sequel to RRR. Let us tell you that the song Naatu-Naatu from S Rajamouli’s film RRR has won an Oscar in the Best Original Song category. The author of this song is MM Keerwani.
