Jr NTR wrote, “Congratulations Jakkanna @ssrajamouli. This is just the beginning of your journey to worldwide glory. It’s time for the world to know what I knew about you all along (sic).”

Sharing the tweet SS Rajamouli corrected Jr NTR saying that it’s not just his journey but the actor’s as well. He wrote, “Haha. Small correction Tarak… Beginning of *OUR JOURNEY..:) (Sic)”
