"They all deserve a shot"

SS Rajamouli’s RRR, which features Jr NTR and Ram Charan in lead roles, has become the biggest blockbuster of Indian cinema.

RRR has become one of the most talked about films among Hollywood moviegoers, critics and celebrities.

The recent one to join the club is the acclaimed writer of Hollywood films Notorious, Lowriders, Creed 2, the creator of Luke from Marvel, and Stanford Alumni, Cheo Hodari Choker who said that Ram Charan deserves a shot for James Bond.

There have been a lot of speculations and rumours about, who will be the next actor to play the iconic role since Daniel Craig stepped down from it after starring in the 2021 film No Time To Die.

Cheo Hodari Coker, the creator of Marvel’s Luke Cage, floated the idea that Ram Charan might be a good contender for the part.

He tweeted: “Damn! That escalated quickly. Everyone knows Idris from, well, everything, but to get inside my thinking, watch Sope in Gangs Of London, Matthew G in The Offer, Damson in Snowfall and Ram in RRR.

“They all deserve a shot at a Savile Row suit and a Walther PPK.”

Ram Charan fans were overjoyed at the prospect of the star being 007 and shared numerous fan edits and photos of the actor as James Bond.

Recently, acclaimed Hollywood director-writer, Aaron Stewart Ahn expressed his wish to write a film for a Rangasthalam actor.

SS Rajamouli’s epic action-drama completed its run at the box office with a closing business of Rs. 902 crores in India and Rs. 1111 crores worldwide.

RRR is a fictional story inspired by 2 legendary freedom fighters, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem.

Along with Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Ajay Devgn, and Alia Bhatt in lead roles, Samuthirakani, Alison Doody, Ray Stevenson, Olivia Morris, and Shriya Saran played supporting roles.

Ram Charan spoke about the success of RRR and teaming up with his dad in an interview with Variety.

Commenting on the film opening to the No 1 tag at the global box-office in its opening weekend, he said:

“I did expect it to be a big hit, but the No 1 tag I never expected – that was a beautiful surprise.

“That was mind-blowing for us, even for Rajamouli I feel.”

On teaming up with Jr NTR, he said that working with his “buddy Tarak and achieving the scale of success in our best director of India’s direction” is the best any actor will ask for.

He added that there was a “so-called rivalry” between him and Jr NTR but they have been friends even before RRR.

Asked about the experience of working with Chiranjeevi in Acharya, he said that he learned a lot from him.

Ram Charan added: “It’s a dream come true, I’ve learned a lot. I don’t think I stepped into Acharya as a co-star, I’ve stepped into it as a student and I’ve learned a lot from him.

“And the best part is he never handheld me through any of the shooting days.”
