SS Rajamouli and David Warner in the Cred ad

SS Rajamouli is a brand after winning an Oscar for the Telugu film song “Naatu Naatu“. The international recognition he got from RRR is humongous.

Rajamouli’s brand value in the global market is unmatched by any star hero’s.

And now, even corporates are cashing in on his craze as well.

Recently, Cred, a financial transactions platform, chose Rajamouli as its ambassador for credit card sales.

It didn’t stop there. It also added Australian cricketer David Warner into the fold. Now, the ad has captivated audiences with its innovative concept.

In the ad, Rajamouli, lacking a credit card, humorously seeks Warner’s assistance, only to pivot and request collaboration on a film project instead.

The imagined scenario, wherein Warner stars in a non-Telugu film directed by Rajamouli, adds a comedic twist.

The ad has swiftly gone viral on social media, showcasing the power of creative marketing.

Despite this success, fans eagerly anticipate updates on Mahesh Babu’s upcoming project, rumoured to be SSMB29, with initial speculation of a Ugadi launch remaining unfulfilled.

Amidst the buzz surrounding the Warner ad, Rajamouli’s recent foray into dance practice for a stage event has reignited interest among fans.
