Actor Anupam Kher recently met filmmaker SS Rajamouli and took to Instagram to share pictures from their interaction.

The actor penned a note for the director. It read, ““What an awesome man! And what an amazing conversation it was with one and only, the maverick @ssrajamouli at @goafestlive. Wonderful to talk to him about joint families, childhood stories, our epics and of course about life in cinema! Jai Ho! #RRR #TheKashmirFiles #LearningExperience #Blockbusters #JoyOfCinema.”

Kher’s last film The Kashmir Files sparked a row with the issue also turning into a political slug fest as the Centre openly praised the movie. In fact, Prime Minister Narendra Modi even visited the members of the film, saying that such movies “reveal the truth”.  The movie was made tax-free in some BJP-ruled states (a decision that clearly did not go down well with the Opposition). 

On the other hand, Congress leader Digvijay Singh accused the BJP of spreading hate by promoting the film and said that the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits happened when the Congress was in the Opposition.

Singh wrote on Twitter, “The exodus of Kashmiri Pandits happened when the Congress was in opposition. The Vishwanath Pratap Singh-led Janata Dal government was supported by the BJP. Mufti Mohammad Sayeed was the Home Minister. Jagmohan Ji was the Governor.”

Meanwhile, Rajamouli’s film RRR starring Jr. NTR and Ram Charan was released in March. The film’s teaser that was released in October 2020 ruffled some feathers Jr NTR who played tribal leader Komaram Bheem was seen sporting a skull cap in the video.

Kher watched RRR in theatres with actor Anil Kapoor, and said in a video recorded before the film started, “One thing common between Mr Rajamouli and me is that we are all in 300 crore club. maybe he is a little more than that.”
