Actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas recently admitted not having watched the Oscar-winning Indian drama ‘RRR’. The SS Rajamouli directorial was a huge box office hit in India and garnered praise even in the West. After winning a Golden Globe, and two Critics Choice Awards (for Best Original Song and Best Foreign Film), ‘RRR’ created history by picking up the Oscars trophy for its song ‘Naatu Naatu’. Priyanka had hosted the ‘RRR’ team in the US during their Oscar campaign.
Priyanka recently took a lie-detector test where she was asked if she watched RRR. She replied in negative, telling Vanity Fair, “I just didn’t get time. I don’t watch a lot of movies but I watch a lot of TV shows. I watch Dubai Bling, but I won’t end up watching Tar.
RRR was headlined by Ram Charan and Jr NTR. Priyanka hosted the screening of the film in the US and even gave a shout-out to the film. She posted a picture of herself with SS Rajamouli and music director MM Keeravani. She wrote on social media, “Least I can do to contribute to this incredible Indian film’s journey. Good luck and congratulations @RRRMovie.”
Priyanka also shared her thoughts about actor Ram Charan, with whom she shared the screen in his Bollywood debut ‘Zanjeer’. She agreed that Charan is the Brad Pitt of India and added, “Ram has immense charisma. I don’t know Brad Pitt, I don’t know if he’s nice, but Ram is nice.” But she refused to choose who is more handsome between Pitt and Charan, as she said, “I grew up having a crush on Brad Pitt, so it’s kind of unfair to Ram to ask that question.”
