During an interaction with the media at an event in Mumbai, AR Rahman congratulated the team of RRR and said that there are many good Indian movies but they don’t enter the competition. He said that the films should have got recognition at the international cinema a decade ago.
He said, “I thought it (India getting a nomination) would start ten years back. It’s 12 years late,” he told the reporters, adding, “This should happen every year from India because we are a country of 1.3 billion people and there are amazing geniuses in every aspect of filmmaking. Most of the movies don’t enter the competition.”
“At least they (makers of RRR) had the thing to put it out there. If nobody knows your movie, who is going to vote for it? I wish them the very best and I want them to win,” Rahman said.
