One lifetime not enough to explore the beauty of Kashmir, says Ram Charan

'It will sound cliche, but the coolest place to shoot in India is Kashmir'


Popular South Indian actor Ram Charan, on Monday, said the accolades that the popular film RRR received are not just for the film, but for the whole of India. The actor was speaking at the 'Film Tourism for Economic and Cultural Preservation' event at Sheri Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) in Srinagar, being hosted as a part of the three-day Tourism Working Group Meeting of the G20 countries.

“I never get tired talking about RRR,’’ the actor said, adding, “I am detached from my other works, but not from RRR.”

Ram Charan said RRR has become India's film. “It is not my movie, but India's. It is not my song, but that of the people of India.”

He said he doesn’t know what it takes to compose a song like Naatu Naatu but everyone involved in RRR is more than happy with the kind of response the movie and the song received.

He called the movie “pure desi product.”

Showering praises on Kashmir for its scenic beauty, the actor said he used to come to Kashmir with his father, as a kid. 

“It will sound cliche, but the coolest place to shoot in India is Kashmir. I am a second-generation actor. My dad has shot extensively in Kashmir, the actor, son of cinema veteran Chiranjeevi,” the RRR star said.

“There is something about this place. One lifetime is not enough to explore the beauty of Kashmir,” he said.

The actor thanked the government and Union Minister for Tourism Kishan Reddy for inviting him to the event.

He was presented with a Kashmir shawl amid thunderous applause.

The actor and South Korean ambassador enthralled the audience by dancing to Naatu Naatu on the occasion.
