Ram Gopal Varma heaped praises on Rana Daggubati & Teja upon catching the screening of 'Nene Raju Nene Mantri'.
Varma claimed he always believed Rana had a great screen presence he ever saw but he wasn't getting his due only because of jealous and prejudices view of people who thought he is just an ordinary son of Studio Owner D Suresh Babu. RGV disclosed he always believed Teja is the best among his Assistants and making a blockbuster with someone like Nithin itself is a proof. 'Today Rana is already up there as an already existing volcano and where I failed in Department and various others failed in other films. I am so thrilled it took the great Teja to push Rana to a bigger upper limit and for this I am so happy and so proud about both of them. I congratulate both Rana and Teja,' he wrote
The Controversial Filmmaker didn't hesitate to say Rana is the only actor about whom audience were talking about after watching 'NRNM', 'LIE' and 'JJN'. He described Rana's ultimate screen presence and Teja's ability to extract performances as a double dhamaka. He even dared to say, 'Entire two telugu states are only talking about Rana and they seemed to have even forgotten the names of the lead actors of the other two films which released along with NRNM'.
RGV opined Rana always have the Bahubalian Personality but Audience began celebrating his acting only now. 'What can be a greater combo than Greek God & Super Duper Performing Ability? A Girl messaged Me saying Rana in NRNM is neither Lie's nor Jai's..He just Magics,' he told.
