Star director SS Rajamouli says he is not disappointed that Baahubali 2 was not chosen as India’s official entry to the Oscars for the foreign language film category this year.
He says his aim is to take stories to a wider audience, and making money for the team, instead of winning awards.
"(I am) Not at all (disappointed at losing out the race to Oscars this year). When I make a film, I never think about awards. It is not my aim. The aim is to first satisfy myself with the story and then next is to see that it reaches the maximum number of audience and makes money for everyone who has put their life in it. That is my most important thing. If awards come, then I am happy. If they don’t, I don’t mind that because they are not at all my criteria,"Rajamouli said.
