Mega Powerstar Ram Charan participated in the India Today Conclave today in New Delhi and talked about his upcoming projects, the nepotism debate, and many other things.
Speaking about his joy over winning Oscar for Naatu Naatu song his RRR film, the Magadheera actor said, “The Oscar win is incredible. I am still pinching myself because I can’t believe that our film has won an Oscar award. My wife is my lucky mascot. The 5-month baby in her womb is even luckier for me. I am going to be a father soon. All good things happen at once.”
Ram Charan also spoke about not performing the song on Oscar’s stage. He said, “I was 100% ready to perform ‘Naatu Naatu’ on the stage at the Oscars. I genuinely don’t know what happened. I think those who performed did a better job than us. ‘Naatu Naatu’ is India’s song.”
Speaking on the nepotism debate, Charan explained that he doesn’t understand this debate. “It’s herd mentality. If the son of an eminent journalist wants to become a journalist, it is only understandable. The inclination in children to follow their parents has always been there. I breathe and live cinema. I wouldn’t have sustained myself in this industry if I was not good at my job.”
When asked about his Hollywood entry, RC revealed that he wishes for it and it might come true. “It’s too early for me to say whether I am in talks for a Hollywood project. Everything is a process until it materializes. It will happen (laughs),” he added.
Addressing the question of entering politics, RC clarified that he wished to sail only in one boat and that boat is the film industry. “There is no question of becoming a politician,” he asserted.
