But we are not the kind of people who would sit and brood on why it didn’t happenWhat has happened has happened, and we should go forward with it. “

“But I am happy because it (Chhello Show/ The Last Film Show) is also an Indian film and it has also been shortlisted for Oscars. I’m quite happy for it. Of course, everyone knew RRR had a much bigger chance. Here (in the US) everyone felt RRR had a bigger chance. But I don’t know how the committee (Film Federation of India), what are guidelines for the committee I don’t know that and I can’t comment on that,” added Rajamouli.
