There is no doubt that SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ has become a global hit. With each passing day, the magnum opus has garnered increasing viewership, especially in the US. The latest one to join the movie’s fandom is Hollywood writer Jackson Lanzing.

A New York Times Bestselling writer, and creative director, he has written DC’s ‘Batman Beyond’, Marvel Comics’ ‘Captain America’, ‘Kang’, and more. Jackson took to his Twitter handle recently and wrote, “Hey Jackson, was RRR the best time you’ve had at the movies?” He also inserted a gif featuring Ram Charan’s character Raju in the Telugu blockbuster giving a thumbs-up, to share his reaction after watching the film.

This isn’t the first time the movie has received a positive review from Hollywood stalwarts. Recently, ‘Doctor Strange’ screenwriter C Robert Cargill took to the micro-blogging website to applaud the movie. Over a tweet, he shared how his friends pestered him to watch it. His tweet read, “Friends came over last night to initiate me into the cult of RRR (RISE ROAR REVOLT) and I’m here to report I am now fully, truly, deeply a member. This is the craziest, most sincere, weirdest blockbuster I’ve ever seen. I’m pretty sure Jess and I are watching it again this week.”

Also, American screenwriter Larry Karaszewski, of ‘American Crime Story’ fame, had tweeted a clip from ‘RRR’ song ‘Natu Natu’. He wrote, “Those who say cinema is dead aren’t looking in the right places. #RRR.”

After opening to packed theatres in March in India across dubbed languages, ‘RRR’ went on to cross Rs 1200 Crore at the global box office. After becoming one of the highest-grossing blockbusters of the year, it is now finding immense success in the US too.
