Ram Charan’s latest outing Rangasthalam has struck the jackpot at the box office as it continues its successful run, having crossed 50 days of theatrical run. According to its makers, earlier this month, the film breached into the Rs 200 crore club. Via an official poster, the makers announced that the film had grossed over Rs 200 crore, making it the third highest grosser after the Baahubali franchise. Despite getting released on Amazon Prime, Rangasthalam is still playing in a few screens.

After impressing critics and audiences alike, the Sukumar directed village-based revenge drama had won over Pawan Kalyan, who recently watched the film and was mesmerized by the overall experience.

Speaking at the success meet of Rangasthalam, Kalyan said that Rangasthalam never felt like watching a film. “It felt like watching a real story of real people. I was transported to a place called Rangasthalam and watching the film felt so life-like. The actors lived their parts. Sukumar has reminded us that it possible to make a realistic film that’s equally commercial.”

Talking more about the film and Ram Charan’s performance, Kalyan said: “Rangasthalam deserves the same kind of support that we gave Baahubali and it should be sent to the Oscars, even if it takes a lot of lobbying. The film showcases Ram Charan’s artistic talent. He’s a complete actor. It amazed me to see Ram Charan in an avatar, sporting thick beard and wearing dhoti. He was born and raised in a city and to see him transform so convincingly into a rural character astonished me.”

Kalyan also heaped praise on Samantha for her performance. “She’s delivered a fine performance at a time when most of us thought she’d quit acting since she’s married.”
