Jr NTR who is currently reeling from the success of RRR in the West indirectly spoke about his ‘fake accent’ during an interview on the Golden Globes red carpet. The popular actor was comparing the industries in the West and East and said, “Divided by time zones and an accent.” 


During the interview, he praised SS Rajamouli’s efforts and said “I always felt this man was not destined to make only films in Telugu or in India. He is one of those rare phenomenons who can travel the globe with his films. With each film, he’s only gotten better. I feel that RRR was his plan of taking the West. What makes us very proud is that a small industry from South India, Tollywood, and one movie called RRR could open the gates to global cinema and bring us here.”

He then went on to indirectly speak about the trolling he is receiving for his accent, he said:

“We are just divided by time zones and a little bit of an accent. Other than that, what an actor goes through in the West is exactly the same process as in the East."
