In an interview with Sam Fragoso of Talk Easy, Ram Charan opened up about his upbringing, he said, "Growing up, all my dad's awards and the cinema magazines would stay in the office below our house and by mistake if I was in the office to take some stationery and would enter our house with any of his pictures, no magazines or pictures of fan work was in our house. A famous Indian artist made a painting of his and even that did not enter out house, because he did not want the influence of his work coming into his residence. He thought it was very glamorous, tempting as an industry and he wanted us to be as normal as possible. He did not want us to know that we had a superstar father and to take it for granted that it would all come easy for us. Whatever he did was right as till today, I am able to pay my EMIs and keep it going and I am doing well because of his upbringing and the way he was."

On RRR he says that, “RRR is a platform where this journey is going to come. It’s a way of achieving what all the hardworking directors and people in the movie industry in India wanted to see for the last 85 years. The final goal is to be recognized on a world platform.” On the historic Oscar Nomination, he added, "All the people that I am talking about, even they don't know what this will be doing for our country. You cannot comprehend the result of this day. It is emotional for all of us. It is emotional for my dad who is waiting there. Before taking my flight, he was so sentimental that I was coming here. In 154 films, he has done and the 42 years he has been working, he has been to the Oscars in the 80s and that too for an appearance, and that also he felt was a huge achievement. But today we have been nominated in the list. As younger actors, we don't know the value of this so early in our career but he knows the value and I truly believe, that we are praying for this for everyone in India too and not just actors. It’s like India winning an Olympic gold medal. I do not run but I know the feeling when an Indian sportsperson holds that medal - The Oscars is like an Olympic Gold medal equivalent for us."
