“There is a reason why Rajamouli is one of the biggest directors of India. I was puzzled on why he was so adamant on the sets when we were shooting for the ‘Naatu Naatu’ song. He was stressing on the sync, while Ram Charan and I had to go for more than a dozen takes”, NTR said.
“Only after the making of the song was released, did I understand. I called up Rajamouli and asked him, how he could foresee even the most minute things. As I read the comments and news articles, everything is just about Ram Charan and me dancing in sync”, NTR explained, as he terms Rajamouli as ‘taskmaster’.
‘RRR’ is slated for a mammoth release on January 7, 2022. Ram Charan and Jr NTR are to be seen in the roles of Alluri Sita Rama Raju and Komaram Bheem, respectively.
