Ram Gopal Varma's career is stagnant now, but he never fails to appreciate a good film. He recently saw Rana Daggubati starrer 'Nene Raju Nene mantri'. The director was in awe as he believed that Rana Daggubati has tremendous potential.
He praised Rana, "I always believed that Rana had the greatest screen presence I ever saw in my life and I sincerely thought he was not getting his due only because of the jealous and prejudiced view of people who were thinking he is not a pedigreed son of a big star but just an ordinary son of a money bag studio owner called Suresh.
And I also always believed that Teja had the greatest talent among all my assistants and just one of the many proofs of my belief is that Teja made a super blockbuster hit Jayam with a nobody from the street called Nitin.
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 … So on this occasion of the super duper success of NRNM I congratulate both Rana and Teja and am shouting millions and millions of cheers to them."
