After a stellar win at the Oscars, Team “RRR” returned to India and continued to celebrate.
One of the main leaders of the tome Ram Charan and his father Chiranjeevi met Union Home Minister Amit Shah in New Delhi on Friday.
Ram Charan greeted the home minister with a bouquet of flowers and a traditional silk shawl. Amit Shah then extended his heartiest congratulations to Ram Charan and presented him with a red silk shawl in congratulations.
If reports are to be believed, Ramcharan is also planning to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi soon.
Ramcharan, who arrived in the capital earlier in the day, was greeted by his fans at the airport.
After his song Naatu Naatu from the film RRR won Best Original Song at the 95th Academy Awards in Los Angeles, crowds of fans welcomed him back to their country with banners and posters bearing his name and photo.
Ram Charan was all smiles and kept clasping his hands and waving as he left the airport and walked to his car. His wife Upasana was also photographed with him.
The actor made sure to greet his fans through the sunroof of his car.
Ram Charan told reporters stationed outside the Indira Gandhi International Airport: “I’m happy and happy. Thank you all. Our condolences to MM Keeravani, SS Rajamouli and Chandrabose Proud. We went to the red carpet and brought an Oscar to India because of their hard work.”
Ram Charan describes “Naatu Naatu” as the song of the people of India.
“I thank all the fans and people of India from North to South, East to West for watching RRR and making the song ‘Naatu Naatu’ a super hit. Naatu Naatu is not our song, it is the song of the people of India. It is for We provided a pathway to an Oscar,” he added.

Also in attendance were singers Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava along with composer and director SS Rajamouli and lead actors Jr NTR and Ram Charan.
