Ram Charan, who will co-star with Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao Jr ( famous as Jr NTR or Tarak) in Rajamouli's much-anticipated period drama, shared a happy photograph of the duo and wrote: "Happy birthday to my dear brother. I know I owe you a return gift. But, I promise I will give you the best. More celebrations await."
