Telugu film hero Ram Charan Teja said he is more anxious about director Sukumar’s ‘Rangasthalam’ than any of his previous movies.
Ram Charan confirms that ‘Rangasthalam’ is definitely a new beginning for his film career.
“After 10 years of acting, I needed a complete change,” he said and added, “I have to constantly challenge myself as an actor. And what bigger challenge than this film where I play a real-life character who is also deaf.”
According to him the movie is completely different for his performance comfort zones. “Hopefully my audience is going to be as excited by my makeover as I am,” Rm Charan said. He made his acting debut in 2007.
“Rangasthalam is my first on several levels,” he claimed.
Stating that he never played a rural character before, Ram Charan, whose father is senior actor-politician Chiranjeevi, said, “In fact, I never stayed in a village before, though I have visited my native village with my father (Chiranjeevi) a few times. But this was my first exposure to rural life.”
“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 said.
Ram Charan also spent considerable time understanding his character’s physical disability.
