New Delhi:

SS Rajamouli’s RRR  had four blockbuster wins at the recently held Hollywood Critics Association Awards in Los Angeles, where the film won 4 big awards, including Best International Film. While the film’s director SS Rajamouli and one of the lead actors Ram Charan went on stage to collect the award, Jr NTR was MIA at the award ceremony. On Tuesday morning, The Hollywood Critics Association issued a statement clarifying that the actor was invited. However, he was shooting for a project in India, which is why he skipped the awards.

Hollywood Critics Association’s statement read: “Dear RRR fans and supporters, We did invite N T Rama Rao Jr. to attend the HCA Film Awards but he is shooting a new film in India. He will be receiving his awards from us shortly. Thank you for all your love and support. Sincerely, The Hollywood Critics Association.”
