The virtual interaction, which was facilitated by Entertainment Weekly, saw the directors talk about their recent projects The Gray Man and RRR among other things. The duo was also in India to promote their film, which marked superstar Dhanush's Hollywood debut alongside Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Ana de Armas.
Meanwhile. Rajamouli's blockbuster period drama RRR stars Jr NTR and Ram Charan in lead roles as Indian revolutionaries Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju. The film has broken several box office records, minting about ₹1200 crore globally. It has also been hailed by notable creators and directors from the West, including Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange helmers James Gunn and Scott Derrickson respectively.
In an interaction with PTI during his India visit, Joe Russo gave his verdict on RRR and mentioned, "It's big at the moment because of Netflix, RRR was a great movie. I thought it was really a well-done epic, (with) nice strong themes, great visuals and a really powerful story about brotherhood.”
