Thanking his wife Rama Rajamouli, who is also a costume designer, he expressed, "More than that, she's the designer of my life."

Despite such success, it is noted that "RRR" was not nominated at the Oscars for Best International Film, as India had decided to send Gujarati movie, "Chhello Show" instead.
