RRR won four awards at the Hollywood Critics Association Film Awards on Friday night. The action epic starring Ram Charan and Jr NTR won awards for Best Action Film, Best International Feature, Best Original Song, and Best Stunts. Director SS Rajamouli delivered a speech about honoring stunt directors at award ceremonies.
In his speech after the Best Action Film win, SS Rajamouli said, “I think I need to go backstage and check…I think I’ll be starting growing wings already…with the second one! Thank you so much it means a lot! I can’t express in words how much it means…”
He continued, “This is the ‘Best Action Film’ (award), we won the ‘Best Stunts’ (award), but probably the ‘Best Stunt’ (award) was for the best stunt choreographer…and…I really would have loved to have the stunt choreographers here to see this because I think that is the team that works so hard and puts their life on the line to entertain us. I think I’ll take this opportunity to ask all the major awards to make a special category for the stunt guys….stunt choreographers, they deserve that! This is for all the stunt choreographers, not only in my country but across the world who work hard to entertain us all.”
