‘The film touched my heart’: Pawan Kalyan after watching ‘Rangasthalam’
On the release of Rangasthalam late last month, Power Star Pawan Kalyan congratulated his nephew and the film’s hero, Ram Charan, for the stellar success of the film. The actor-turned-politician took to Twitter to congratulate the team but did not get time to watch the film then.
After wrapping up his political tour in Vijayawada recently, Pawan Kalyan took time off to watch Rangasthalam. The star was at the Prasads Multiplex on Monday night along with his wife Anna to watch the movie. Among others present at the screening were Ram Charan Teja, his wife Upasana, the film’s director Sukumar and producers Naveen Yerneni, Y Ravi Sankar and Mohan Cherukuri.
Soon after the screening, Pawan Kalyan met the media persons waiting outside and said, “This is a great film. Ram Charan came up with a brilliant performance. Sukumar’s story and narration is marvellous. This is one film that touched my heart. Will talk more about the film at movie’s success event.”
Recently, maverick director SS Rajamouli had also praised the cast and crew in a tweet: “The only person who could stand his ground to Charan, to an extent was JB [Jagapathi Babu]. His slow drawling dialogue and performance was really menacing. Congratulations to Mythri, Sukku and Team Rangasthalam for the terrific box office performance as well.”
