Ram Charan Teja’s Rangasthalam, directed by Sukumar, released on March 30 and the film is getting rave reviews from critics and fans. The film has got thumbs up for the story and setting and his performance as Chitti Babu is being called his ‘career best’. And the actor promises that this is just the beginning. After spending almost a decade in the industry, the actor wanted something that would surprise and impress his audience like never before and also help him challenge his capacities as an actor. The role in Rangasthalam, his first ever real life character, who is dead and lives in a rustic setting, came at the right time.

In an recent interview, looking back at what he has gained from the experience, Ram Charan said, “It is a completely different zone of performance for me. I had never played a rural character before. In fact I had never stayed in a village before. We actually went and stayed in the remotest town on the map of Andhra Pradesh where there was no network for mobile services, no luxury hotels. Nothing to remind me of my metropolitan existence. We had to rough it out. The entire process of acclimatisation changed my attitude to the process of acting,” he revealed to IANS.

I hope to do more such roles in future,” he shared. The actor also hopes that his journey into a new phase would be “as smooth as it has been for the first ten years.” With the positive reviews coming in, we are sure it will be.
