Speaking at the pre-release event of RRR on Saturday, SS Rajamouli got emotional while thanking Chiranjeevi. He spoke of how Chiru did his best to convince the Andhra Pradesh government to reverse the 2021 Government Order that brought down cinema ticket prices to an all-time low.
"Everyone of us in the industry knew that the GO was not viable. The entire film industry, including me, tried our best to reach out to the government. But only one person could do the job. It is Megastar Chiranjeevi garu. His detractors demeaned him but he didn't mind it. He readily went out of his way to convince the Chief Minister only so that we all win," Rajamouli said, adding that he is a true Megastar.
The filmmaker also said that the new GO brought out by the Telangana government regarding cinema ticket prices was also possible only because of Chiranjeevi.
