Critics Choice Awards: SS Rajamouli thanks all women in his life as RRR wins big

RRR is on a winning spree with back-to-back accolades. After bagging the Golden Globe for Naatu Naatu under the best original song category, the film has now won two awards-- Best Foreign Language film and Best song for Nattu Nattu-- at the 28th Critics Choice Awards. 

Accepting the award, the epic-actioner's director SS Rajamouli addressing the gathering, said, "To all the women in my life. My mother Raja Nandini thought school education was overrated and she encouraged me to read comics and story books and encouraged my creativity. My sister-in-law Srivalli who became like a mother to me always encourages me to be the best version of me."

"My wife Rama... she's the costume designer of my films but more than that she is the designer of my life. If she's not there I am not here today. To my daughters, their smiles are enough to light my life up. "And finally to my motherland India, Mera Bharat Mahan - Jai hind."

The Critics Choice Awards is an awards show presented annually by the American-Canadian Critics Choice Association to honour the finest in cinematic achievement. RRR is a fictional story that revolves around two real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR), and their fight against the British Raj.
