“RRR has been a dream project for me. I am glad to have had such talented actors to make it come to life. I remember for the introduction scene, I made Jr. NTR run in a jungle without chappals and he ran like a tiger. As for Charan, I made him be a part of a crowd of 2000 people amidst dust and sweat. It was one of the best scenes I have ever shot in my journey as a director. If the hustle was so splendid, we wanted to begin the year with a celebration just as magnificent. The ‘New Year Celebrations with RRR’ event is our way to thank our audience and share this joyous moment with them. The entire RRR family is excited to welcome the New Year with our amazing Viewers and we look forward to seeing them in theatres during the release of the movie.” shared S.S. Rajamouli.

“Being a part of RRR has been a wonderful experience. Rajamouli has been the kind of director that I always look forward to working with as he is someone who always introduces me to something new. After a term of these amazing shooting days and such an eventful experience, a grand celebration is just what we were looking forward to, to call it a year and come together to celebrate the New Year with our ever-supporting audience. In this grand ‘New Year Celebrations with RRR’ the viewers are in for a visual treat and playful banters. I am glad to share this moment with everyone.” said Jr. NTR

“I am only grateful to have been a part of Rajamouli’s dream project RRR and look forward to doing many more such projects with him in the future. As much fun as we had preparing for the film, we hope the viewers will have a ball watching the big New Year celebration where the RRR team reunited to bring a night full of entertainment. I hope the audience who will join us for the celebration will come together to watch the film and enjoy just as much.” Said Ram Charan

“It only feels like yesterday when I met Rajamouli sir at the Hyderabad airport when I expressed my dream of working with him, only to be more than delighted when he told me that he has something that I can work on. That project turned out to be India’s biggest action drama. It definitely calls for a celebration which is just as grand and beautiful. And who better than our viewers to share the New Year celebration with. There couldn’t have been a better way to end the year than this – on such a monumental note. With all the beautiful performances and heart-warming moments, it will be a night to cherish forever. I hope our fans and all the viewers have a great time witnessing the big celebration.” said Alia Bhatt.
