Actor Tamannaah Bhatia recently shared her experience of working with South Indian superstars and praised their considerate nature towards female actors on set. Having worked in both Hindi and South Indian films, she highlighted the way the actors down south are well brought up and are respectful. Bhatia mentioned how Chiranjeevi once expressed his belief that she would become a star in the future. She also recounted a pleasant surprise she received from superstar Rajinikanth during one of their early collaborations.

In a conversation with Barkha Dutt on Mojo Story, Bhatia said, “Chiranjeevi was one of my first people who told me, ‘You are going to become a star.’ This was when I was working with Ram Charan and I hadn’t made it yet.”

Talking about how men are considerate of female actors on sets, the actor said, “I’ve seen Charan or even (Naga) Chaitanya, Nagarjuna sir’s son, I feel like they’ve all brought up their boys so gracefully. They are so well-behaved, so cultured, so respectful. I mean, chivalry is rare in the world in general, and sometimes even less so in our country. But I do feel like with a few men that I have worked with there, they’re so chivalrous. Making sure that the woman on the set is comfortable, Chiranjeevi sir being one of them.”
