On the other hand, NTR Jr, who stars in Naatu Naatu said, “I cannot find the words to express my elation right now. This is not just a win for RRR but for India as a country. I believe this is just the beginning. Showing us how far Indian cinema can go. Congratulations to Keeravani Garu and Chandra Bose. Of course none of this would have been possible without a master storyteller called Rajamouli and the audiences who showered us with all the love.”
