The Ram Charan And Jr NTR
Rivalry Explained

SS Rajamouli's 'RRR' has not just changed the perception of Indian cinema, but also ended the decades-long rivalry between Ram Charan & Jr NTR.

'RRR' features Ram Charan (Alluri Sitarama Raja) & Jr NTR (Komaram Bheem) as best friends.

But in real life, before the stars were roped in for the movie 'RRR', they were known for the rivalry between them.

The actors didn't share the same bond before they agreed to do 'RRR' & there was enough negative press around their families.

Since both the actors belong to popular families in Tollywood, their fan bases are divided & created an assumed rivalry between them.

"His grandfather, and my father… It was like we were arch-rival families…," Ram Charan said in an interview with American journalist David Poland.

Jr NTR had earlier confessed in an interview that even though there has been a rivalry for three decades, the film 'RRR' turned them into friends.

During the promotions of 'RRR', the camaraderie shared between the stars was APPRECIATED by all.

Ahead of Oscars, 'RRR' has won two Critics Choice Awards, Golden Globes Award and the prestigious NYFCC award in New York.
