Ram Charan & Jr NTR’s Family Rivalry

The families of both actors have worked in the Tollywood film industry for decades. Ram Charan’s father, Chiranjeevi, is one of the biggest Telugu superstars.

In 2023, Ram Charam talked about working with Jr NTR in RRR and the competition between the two and their families. “A sense of brotherhood and camaraderie is there, but obviously, there is a healthy competition. I have seven actors in my family, and once the party is over, once the festival is over, even my cousins and I are competitive. Obviously, with NTR also, there is a sense of competition. Our families have been known as arch-rivals in the film industry for 20-30 years. His grandfather, and my father… It was like we were arch-rival families,” Ram said on the DP/30: Conversation About Hollywood series on YouTube.

Jr NTR spoke about his equation with his RRR co-star, Ram Charam. The Devara actor told the Los Angeles Times, “It’s simple physics. Opposite poles attract. Charan gets attracted to what he doesn’t have in him. And I get attracted to what I don’t attain in myself, so we look up to each other. It’s a support system. We complement each other, and we can share a few secrets that will never get out.”

Meanwhile, all the Ram Charan and Jr NTR fans will get to watch the magic of RRR on the big screen again. The movie is set to re-release in India soon. The SS Rajamouli directorial also stars Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, Ray Stevenson, and Olivia Morris.
