New Delhi: “RRR” director SS Rajamouli on Thursday met legendary Japanese video game director-creator Hideo Kojima.
The celebrated filmmaker, along with superstars N T Rama Rao Jr and Ram Charan, is promoting “RRR” in Japan ahead of its release in the country on Friday.
Regarded as an auteur of video games, Kojima had praised “RRR” on Twitter earlier this year, calling it a “must-watch”.
The 59-year-old creator of iconic video games ” Metal Gear” and “Death Stranding” took to Twitter to share photographs from his meeting with the Indian filmmaker at his Kojima Productions office.
“Director S.S. Rajamouli visited KJP!!! We have scanned him. RRR,” he wrote.
In the photographs, Rajamouli could be seen sitting inside a full-body scanner. Scanners are usually used to create detailed CG 3D images of a person for video games.
Rajamouli also posted pictures from the meeting on his official Twitter page.
“Delighted and honoured to meet the legendary @Kojima_Hideo in Japan. Talked to him about video games, movies and much more… Will cherish these memories for long,” the filmmaker tweeted.
The images of the filmmaker getting scanned have fans speculating if he will be appearing in Kojima’s next video game. No official announcement has been made yet. Kojima is known to cast A-list celebrities in his games, including the likes of Elle Fanning, Mads Mikkelsen, Norman Reedus, Lea Seydoux, Guillermo Del Toro, and more.
A pre-Independence fictional story, “RRR” stars Ram Charan and Jr NTR as real-life Indian revolutionaries in the 1920s Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, respectively. The film also features Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in key roles.
