SS Rajamouli's father Vijendra Prasad revealed that he was 'disappointed' when `RRR` was not selected as India's official entry to the Oscars but he is still hopeful about the its chances at the Academy Awards.

`RRR' writer and director SS Rajamouli's father Vijendra Prasad in a recent interview revealed that he was 'disappointed' when the magnum opus was not selected as India's official entry to the Oscars but he is still hopeful about the film's chances at the Academy Awards.

Speaking with Pinkvilla, he said, ` Yes, I was disappointed, but unfortunately, I can’t express my disappointment as I was directed affected by the decision.`

However, the writer added that he is still hopeful. ` I am hopeful to get at least a couple of nominations at the Oscars,` he smilingly said. The film is eligible for contention in some categories such as Best Director, Best Composer, Best Screenplay, and Best Actor, and others.

SS Rajamouli also opened up about the sequel of `RRR` and said, ` Yes, we are thinking of making RRR 2. My son wants me to write a sequel. It will be again a fiction story with the same characters played by the two (Jr. NTR and Ram Charan).`

'RRR' writer Vijendra Prasad said that his son, SS Rajamouli’s dream to make `Mahabharata` will take some time. `Mahabharata will take some time, whereas I have written a draft of Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2. It’s in Salman Bhai now on when to start the film,` he said.

SS Rajamouli had earlier said at an event in Chicago, `I would absolutely love to (do a sequel). I can’t reveal many details about it but my father, who has been a screenwriter for all my films including RRR…We discussed a bit about it, and he is working on the story.`

`RRR` is gaining recognition globally as the time is progressing. SS Rajamouli recently won the Best Director award from New York Film Critics Circle.
