If you are a fan of the much-loved Ram Charan then there is some bad news for you. In the latest development, his latest release Rangasthalam—which hit screens on March 30,2018—wil be removed from theatres in Tami Nadu from this Sunday. The Telugu Film Producer Council has taken this decision in view of the ongoing TFPC strike to protest the high fees charged by Digital Service Providers. This act is likely to result in more unity amongst producers from different industries. However, at the same time it is going to leave movie buffs a bit disappointed.
In case you did not know, Rangasthalam is a rural drama and has been directed by Sukumar. In it, the ‘Mega Power Star’ essays the role of a lively guy named Chitti Babu and shares screen space with actor Samantha Akkineni for the first time in his career. While speaking at its pre-release event, Charan had said that Rangasthalam helped him understand the beauty of village life.
“Rangasthalam gave me the opportunity to appreciate and celebrate what it means to live in a village. Life is so peaceful in a village and we can’t find pure and clean people anywhere else. I kept thinking how much we miss staying in the cities. I need to thank team Rangasthalam and director Sukumar for this life-changing experience and I should admit I discovered a new Ram Charan in this process,” he had said.
Similarly, while speaking about the film, Sam had said that playing a de-glam character was big relief for her.
“It was such a relief to play a character where I didn’t have to look perfect. It’s too much pressure to handle when you’re constantly thinking about your make-up, hair beyond what you are actually supposed to do in front of the camera. Everything about the film and my role is on a different tangent,” she had said.
So, do you feel removing Rangasthalam from theatres in Tamil Nadu is the right decision? Comments, please!
