SS Rajamouli, the director of RRR, opened up about the passion for dance that Ram Charan and Jr NTR had and said they were ‘exceptionally good dancers’.
Naatuy Naatu from RRR has become a rage around the world not just for its music but for the way in which the Tollywood stars danced their hearts out.
Rajamouli, in a session conducted by Vanity Fair, spoke about the emotional significance of Naatu Naatu in RRR, which was set in pre-Independence India. He said in the session that dance was not about how acrobatic you are or if you are perfect. The director praised both Ram Charan and Tarek for the dance skills.

“You should really enjoy your dance, only then can the audience get the enjoyment,” Rajamouli explained. “Secondly, in every moment of the dance you are conveying an emotion, an energy. (Naatu Naatu) Even though we are humiliated by you, but we have this weapon to give it back to you.”
