SS Rajamouli talks about Ram Charan’s introduction scene in RRR- “Filming Charan’s introduction block was a scary experience”
Speaking on the same, director SS Rajamouli affirms, “When you see a 1000 people ganging up on one guy, you will feel the adrenaline rush. Filming Charan’s introduction block was a scary experience. Soon after I said action, 1000 people, with Charan amongst them would move at once and there used to be dust all over. It was scary not to see him clearly amidst such a huge crowd. Luckily, he came out unscathed.”
