Actor Ram Charan picked four Indian films for his international fans to see after RRR. He also shared his top four Hollywood films that can be watched again and again.
Best Indian films
While promoting RRR during the Oscars run in the US, the actor spoke to the press there and revealed four favorites of his from international and Telugu cinema. The 38-year-old chose a mix of new and old, with one Hindi feature and the rest of the films from the Telugu industry. He also chose four of his favorite Hollywood films that he could watch again and again.
In an interview with Letterboxd, Ram was asked about other Indian films for audiences to seek out after RRR. He shared, “Many classics coming from my region in the south of India – Danna Veera Soora Karna. I would say, Mr. India. It’s a beautiful story done by Mr. Shekhar Kapur who did Elizabeth. I think Baabubali, Mr. Rajamouli’s previous film, and my film Rangasthalam.”
Best Hollywood films
Ram also shared his Hollywood favorites and stated, “I can start… One of my favorite films is [The] Notebook and then Terminator 2. You know, those big LED discs which we used to get back in those days. I used to watch it a couple of times a week and I’ve started counting and it was 50, probably 50 times. I would have watched the film. That’s how much I love that movie. Gladiator. All Quentin Tarantino movies. I like Inglorious Bastards. One of my favorites.”
