Actor Ram Charan was invited to participate in the renowned talk show Good Morning America in New York while he was visiting the US in advance of the Academy Awards in 2023. Outside the venue, Ram Charan was surrounded by fans as he arrived for the show. He even stopped to take photographs with a few of them.
Ram Charan discussed the success of RRR and SS Rajamouli as well as his anxiety of being a “new dad” as part of the programme.
Talking about the film and Rajamouli, he said: “RRR is a film about great friendship. Brotherhood and camaraderie. It’s about the two characters (Ram and Bheem). It’s also one of the best writings of my director, Rajamouli. He’s known as Steven Spielberg of India. I hope he’s going to make his way towards global cinema very soon.”
Speaking of RRR, Ram Charan said: “It is not just RRR, it is Indian cinema and its technicians that are being honoured. Just when we thought we had achieved everything in India and were set to move on to the next project, the West just showed us this is the beginning.”
Ram stated he does not have much time right now because he travels a lot to discuss how he’s coping with the fear of becoming a father. “I’m basically doing a lot of packing and unpacking.” He continued by saying that his wife Upasana would spend a lot of time in the US before to the baby’s birth.

The song has the crowds cheering and dancing in the aisles at all the recent western showing of RRR. Many videos of western theatregoers dancing to the song in recent months have appeared on social media.
