Sukumar-directed Rangasthalam was a huge success at the Box Office. The film starring Ram Charan went on to become the third highest grosser of Telugu industry sans Baahubali franchise. Well, the success of the film has made Ram Charan only responsible to do better films. Recently, during the launch event of a mobile brand, Ram Charan also spoke about how Box Office numbers should not decide the success of the film instead, how many people have watched it should be considered.
At the event, Ram Charan was asked if a film’s success is all about Box Office numbers, to which he replied, “I’m not particularly happy with the way audiences’ are reacting to box-office numbers. It’s not in our hands how they feel when we share these numbers. But I feel when producers share numbers; it’s being interpreted wrongly by fans. In future, I request all my producers to never again put box-office numbers on posters.”
He further added, “The box-office numbers should be compared with the footfalls. More than the numbers, the real happiness for any actor, in my opinion, is hearing ten people talk about how genuinely good is a particular film. We all as actors are good friends and we want our fans to also feel the same way and not make way for controversies by unnecessarily talking about numbers. I will ensure that box-office numbers are not publicly shared even in my production.”
The village-based drama Rangasthalam starring Ram Charan and Samantha Akkineni in the lead was released on 30 March.
Meanwhile, Ram Charan is shooting for RC12 starring Kiara Advani. The lead actors recently headed to Bangkok for the shooting of the film.
