Ram Charan talks about Salman Khan

They've done ads together for a very, very long time. Mr Salman Khan, said 'Beta, I heard you're in town.' I said, 'How come?' He said, 'Nothing happens in Mumbai (without him knowing).' He invited me home and that warm reception I'll keep in my heart."
To this, moderator Rajdeep Sardesai told him, "Salman Khan is a great host but dangerous when he invites you home because the night doesn't end till 5 am." The Pan India superstar replied, "No, Sir. He is very graceful. He lets us. If people want to stay, voluntarily they stay." When further asked, "You're a bhai ka fan?" He replied, "Yes, sir, yes."
On not performing on Naatu Naatu
Several reports claim that Ram Charan and Jr NTR refused to perform Naatu Naatu on the stage. Ram Charan at the conclave refuted reports and stated, "I was 100 per cent ready to get that call but I truly don't know what happened. But let's not talk about it because the troupe who did it there, were fantastic and they did a better job than us. I have done it so many times and on so many stages, now it's for us to relax and enjoy the show and see somebody else perform for India. I feel it is no longer our song, it is India's song. It's the people who have taken us to the carpet."
