He made these comments while appearing in an interaction held by Netflix. Russo Brothers participated in the interaction and Rajamouli joined the interaction from his home in Hyderabad.

SS Rajamouli said that he is not happy with Netflix as the OTT platform left the four other languages and it bought only the Hindi version. Having said that, SS Rajamouli said, he was surprised looking at the reception RRR got from the western audiences.

"First of all, I am actually angry with Netflix because they took only the Hindi version, not the rest of the four. So that is, I have a complaint against them. Second thing is, yes, I was surprised with the reception from the West," RRR director SS Rajamouli said in the interaction.
