Danny is the latest foreign star to praise the film. Earlier, several Hollywood filmmakers have showered their love on the film, the latest being director Edgar Wright and Joe and Anthony Russo.
Talking to India Today about the film and his upcoming show Little Demon, he said, “Oh, I love Bollywood big time. In fact, in fact, a few days back, I did RRR and another R.R. . Saw it. Prince, it was really cool! I think if I had a chance next season or whenever I could talk to everyone, we should definitely come out in bigger numbers.”
Danny continued, “It would be amazing to see people doing the moves. But at the same time, what I love about Bollywood is it keeps the story intact. If it is a love story, two romantic leads will be seen going into it. .. Like RRR, it’s about the fight between everyone, but they keep the story going in the singing too. And I love that aspect of it. I think it’s great.”
