Rana Daggubati – The True Party Starter

Text: ANAHITA AHUJA

Coming on board as the first regional celebrity for Chandon’s Party Starter campaign, Rana Daggubati fits the title to the T. Introducing the South Indian sensation in their third edition, the brand plans to run a year-long campaign that will present interesting stories about the star. We caught up with the man himself to understand how he fits the bill and his party side…

What according to you, makes you a party starter?

I think everyone’s got to be a party starter with regards to the situation and the requirement for that moment. I think I definitely have it in me to get any party started. I am humbled with Chandon calling me a game changer!

Tell us about your association with Chandon?

Chandon is an interesting sparkling wine brand that’s both new and fun. The campaign as you may have seen previously is a lighter side of these young achievers. I’m glad to be a part of it and also excited to present a more fun side of me.

What is your best party place in Hyderabad?

There was this lovely place called N once upon a time and I really loved it.

Favourite brunch place in Hyderabad?

I love Fusion9. Great food and good drinks!

You’re known for your house party scenes – What do you usually enjoy?

Honestly, with the kind of schedule we actors have, it is either shoots life or non-shoot life. I do enjoy partying when I’m free for sure and now that I’ve been called the ‘party starter’ so I think I can live up to that.

What would you define a perfect party as?

Good food and great company plus some Chandon!
