Jr NTR attended the 'Brahmastra' press meet where he apologised to his fans and the media as the pre-release event got cancelled due to 'unforeseen circumstances'.
While talking to the media, the actor also praised Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar, Ayan Mukerji and others present at the event.
During the event, the RRR actor revealed that Ranbir’s performance in Rockstar left a deep impact on him and that it has also inspired him as an actor.
NTR concluded by sharing his thoughts about the pressure on the actors and the filmmakers in the current scenario where big movies are not working at the box office.
He said, "Let's start celebrating films as well. The audience wants something more than what we are delivering now.
I personally believe that we perform better when we are under pressure. So the pressure is good, I think the industry, in total, needs to accept this challenge and make good, better films for our audience.
And I hope everybody understands it and I am not putting anybody down here. Let's accept the challenge. Let's move forward and make great movies for the masses."
Directed by Ayan Mukerji, Brahmastra is gearing up for worldwide release on September 9. Besides Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, the film also stars Nagarjuna, Amitabh Bachchan, and Mouni Roy in the lead roles. Superstar Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in an extended cameo.

Filmmaker SS Rajamouli is presenting the film in all four languages. Megastar Chiranjeevi lent his voice to the Telugu trailer of Brahmastra. Made on a massive budget, the much-awaited film is bankrolled by Star Studios, Dharma Productions, Prime Focus, and Starlight Pictures.
