Rajkummar Rao’s ‘Newton’🗳 has been chosen as India’s official entry to the Oscars🏆, jumpstarting the film's box office collections. However many fans are shocked😵 that Amit Masurkar's political satire gained the edge over ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’⚔!
But S.S. Rajamouli isn't perturbed by this🤷🏻♂. Asked whether he was disappointed at losing out the Oscars race this year, he said, 🔈"Not at all. 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."
