Amidst his trip to the US to attend the Golden Globe Awards, Ram Charan couldn’t catch his father Chiranjeevi’s latest hit, Waltair Veerayya, on the first day and had to hear the feedback for the film through social media and his near and dear. In the film’s success meet held at Warangal on Saturday, the RRR star shared his happiness about watching his father’s film in theatres like a fanboy.

“When I was in US to attend the Golden Globes and crowds were celebrating RRR, it was hard for me to tell them about our madness for cinema and why the aura hits you differently here. They need to come to a place like this to know what I was talking about. I came to this event, not as a chief guest, but as a Chiranjeevi fan. Thanks to Bobby, he looked like my brother in the film,” he said.


“The script was tailormade to suit my dad’s strengths. I still haven’t told my father how much I loved watching him on screen for Waltair Veerayya. The term Poonakaalu Loading, coined by Roll Rida, turned out to be an anthem. Besides the fan base of Chiranjeevi and Ravi Teja, I can confidently say that at least 30% of the business was driven by Devi Sri Prasad’s music,” the star shared.

Ram Charan, on a light-hearted note, also said that Devi Sri Prasad has a soft spot for my dad since Khaidi No 150 and expressed his desire to groove to similar songs. “The producers Mythri Movie Makers gave me a memorable film like Rangasthalam and a career defining hit for most actors they’d worked with. Many producers should learn a thing or two about the passion they have for cinema.”

The actor said that it could’ve been only been possible for Ravi Teja to deliver the ‘left turning icchuko’ dialogue to someone of Chiranjeevi’s stature, “Only brothers and fans have the right to say anything to him.” Though Chiranjeevi may remain silent, we, as his fans, won’t keep calm, he mentioned, directing his words to naysayers, trolls who may not have kind words to say about the star.
