The roar of SS Rajamouli-helmed RRR is yet to get over the minds of movie lovers. Mega power star Ram Charan and Young Tiger Jr NTR essaying the fictional roles of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem respectively were exemplary in their acting abilities. The worldwide box office collection says it all.
Apart from the duo, Alia Bhatt did a great job in her limited role while Olivia Morris looked apt in her character. Even, Ajay Devgn's role as a patriot was considered an icing on the cake.
However, this didn't go down well with a certain category of movie lovers and they considered the inclusion of Alia and Ajay a mere trick of the south ace filmmaker to draw the attention of the audience in the north belt. Many even went on to criticise Alia and Ajay for their petite role though being big fames in the B Town and demanded clarification over their addition to RRR.
Finally, the helmer himself has spilt the beans on their inclusion in the flick.
During an interview with Gallata Plus, the interviewer shot an answer from the ace filmmaker.
The interviewer asked, "Making a pan-India film, when you cast people like Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn, is it also an eye on, though they must fit into the plot, that they would make it more familiar?"
Rajamouli, responding to the question said, "The commercial aspect will be there. You can't completely separate them. The art and commercial, you can't completely separate them. That will be there, but you have to be very careful not letting commerce take over the art. It is always the art that leads and hand in hand with commerce."
"Of course, the commercial aspects of Ajay sir or Alia to appeal to most of the north Indian audience is there. But, only because they satisfied my creative artistic need, I approached them," he added.
Well, this is what many movie buffs would have thought of. But, roping in the Bollywood fames in such a limited role has certainly left their fans heartbroken. However, the story plot, narration, action sequences, VFX and all other aspects must have mended the broken hearts which is quite evident from the box office collections.
