Ramcharan at Rangasthalam Pre-Release Event
In Charan words –
“Except for a couple of times as a kid when I visited the sets of my dad’s films in some villages, I have never spent quality time in a village. Rangasthalam gave me the opportunity to appreciate and celebrate what it means to live in a village. Life is so peaceful in a village. We can’t find pure and clean people anywhere else. I kept thinking how much we miss staying in the cities. I need to thank team Rangasthalam and director Sukumar for this life-changing experience.
Also, I should admit I discovered a new Ram Charan in this process. We shot for over a year. The support of my producers has been unparalleled. They managed to pull off such a big project without even a minor hassle.
She’s a very good co-star and her presence only helped me to be a better performer. I’m really thankful to her,” he thanked Samantha. “I didn’t feel like shaving for many days even after we completed shooting. In fact, I loved my bearded look. I believe Rangasthalam will make my parents proud.”
Chiranjeevi Appreciation for Ramcharan and Sukumar
Chiranjeevi, as a chief guest made his words of praise for the movie.
In his words –
“After I watched the film, I called Sukumar home and hugged him in happiness. So many village-based films come and go, but I haven’t seen anything as pure as Rangasthalam in a long time. When he pitched the story, I wasn’t sure if he could capture the essence of village lifestyle. But I was spellbound after I saw the film. From capturing the local politics to portraying clean, pure rural emotions, he’s done a spending job of recreating the village flavor. It was only possible because he born and raised in a village. Nobody else could understand the rural lifestyle the way he could. It’s an arresting film and I’m sure it’ll mesmerize the audience.”
Talking about his son, the proud father said, “As an artist, I feel jealous of Ram Charan for being part of this project. As a father, all I have for him is pride. When Sukumar told me Charan would play a character with hearing impairment, I wasn’t sure how it’ll be received. Sukumar assured me he’ll make the character as entertaining as possible. I’m glad he delivered it. Moreover, I believe Rangasthalam will take Charan to his next level in his career.”
Indeed, Sukumar also thanked Chiranjeevi when he hugged him.
