Thanking the 110-year-old troupe for their performance, he wrote: “Its an honour that our RRR has been adapted as a musical by the 110 year old Takarazuka company.”

“Thank you Japanese audience for embracing the Broadway play of RRR just like the film itself. Overwhelmed by your response… Can’t appreciate all the girls enough for your energy, talent, and meticulousness in the show. ARIGATO GOZAIMASU,” he said.

In the video shared on X, the Indian film director could be seen taking a bow as the audience honours him with a thunderous round of applause.

He also posed for photos with the actors of the musical.

RRR won Best Original Song award at both the Golden Globes and Oscars.
