RRR is currently trending on social media in a huge way. Fans have been praising the performances of the key actor Ram Charan and Jr NTR, as well as their bromance in each combo sequence. For those who haven’t seen RRR yet, Tarak and Charan portray independence warriors Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju, respectively.
The period action drama is set in pre-independence India and is a fictionalized version of the renowned revolutionaries’ youth. The film is generating a lot of buzz on social media, due to its fantastic theatrical run and massive box office haul, but what has also piqued the interest of netizens is Jr NTR’s stunning comment about his rivalry with his RRR co-star and good buddy Ram Charan.
What Jr NTR Says about the rumors?
Accepting that rivalry between their families (the NTR and Mega families) has existed for at least 30-35 years, Tarak claimed in an interview with film critic Anupama Chopra for Film Companion that their competitiveness is beneficial since they have a genuine friendship in real life.
According to reports, the actor stated, “Two performers from opposing families. I’m not sure whether I should mention this, but there’s been 30-35 years of competition between the families, and today we’re doing this film. We’re rivals, but we’re also wonderful friends. As a result, our rivalry is really pleasant.”
Jr NTR, who referred to RRR as a trailblazer, claimed that large-scale collaboration is required in every business. “When was the last time two great performers in Hindi collaborated? Arjun Karan? However, we are now witnessing cross-pollination, which is necessary “He went on to say
For years, there were rumors that the two actors were not on speaking terms, but things turned for the better when SS Rajamouli chose to cast them in his magnum opus RRR, and they both eventually let bygones be bygones.
