Jr NTR Returns from Japan, Expresses Sympathy for Earthquake-Hit Nation

Actor Jr NTR shared with his fans on Tuesday that he has returned to India after spending a week in earthquake-hit Japan, where a 7.6-magnitude earthquake, subsequent aftershocks, and a tsunami struck. The disaster claimed at least 12 lives, and ongoing rescue and relief efforts are underway in the affected areas. The RRR star “Jr NTR’  expressed his heartfelt sympathy for those impacted by the calamity.

Taking to social media, Jr NTR, formerly on X (Twitter), conveyed his gratitude for the resilience of the people and wished for a swift recovery. Jr NTR ‘s post read, “Back home today from Japan and deeply shocked by the earthquakes hitting. Spent the entire last week there, and my heart goes out to everyone affected. Grateful for the resilience of the people and hoping for a swift recovery. Stay strong, Japan 🇯🇵,said Jr NTR'”

In response to the crisis, about a thousand army personnel have been deployed to the worst-hit regions, particularly in Japan’s remote Noto peninsula. However, rescue operations are facing challenges due to badly damaged and obstructed roads, according to Reuters.


On the professional front, Jr NTR’s upcoming project is “Devara,” directed by Koratala Siva. A new poster for the film was unveiled on Tuesday. Set in a coastal town, “Devara” marks Jr NTR’s first screen venture following the global success of “RRR.” The film also features Janhvi Kapoor in her South Indian debut, and it will be released in two parts due to the expansive storyline. The first part is scheduled for release on April 5 as per the Jr NTR’.

The recent earthquake in Japan, with a magnitude of 7.6, has occurred at a delicate juncture for the country’s nuclear industry. This sector has been grappling with staunch opposition from local communities since the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, which led to nuclear meltdowns in Fukushima.

The impact of the New Year’s Day earthquake has been severe, resulting in at least eight casualties, extensive damage to buildings and roads, and leaving thousands without power in freezing temperatures. As authorities strive to evaluate the full scope of the disaster, the situation remains challenging.

The earthquake, along with subsequent aftershocks and tsunami waves reaching approximately 1 meter in height, struck Japan’s western seaboard on Monday afternoon. In response, residents in coastal areas promptly sought refuge in higher grounds to evade potential dangers.

Efforts to address the aftermath of the catastrophe have been hampered by the extensive damage to roads and infrastructure. Despite the dispatch of about a thousand army personnel to the hardest-hit region, located in the relatively remote Noto peninsula, rescue operations are facing significant obstacles due to blocked and badly damaged roads, as reported by Reuters.

As Japan grapples with the aftermath of the devastating earthquake on New Year’s Day, the nation finds itself at a critical juncture, especially considering the sensitive backdrop of its nuclear industry. The earthquake, measuring 7.6 in magnitude, and subsequent aftershocks and tsunami waves have left at least eight individuals dead, leading to widespread destruction of buildings and infrastructure, along with power outages affecting thousands, particularly in freezing temperatures.

The timing of this seismic event is particularly poignant for Japan’s nuclear sector, which has been contending with vehement opposition since the catastrophic events of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami that triggered nuclear meltdowns in Fukushima.

The impact of the recent disaster has compelled residents in coastal areas to evacuate to higher grounds, seeking refuge from both the initial quake and potential tsunami threats. As the affected regions grapple with the scale of the destruction, the deployment of about a thousand army personnel to the worst-hit areas, notably the remote Noto peninsula, underscores the urgency of the situation.


The evolving situation in Japan demands a multifaceted response, balancing immediate relief efforts with long-term considerations for the affected communities and the broader implications on the country’s nuclear industry. As the nation confronts this crisis, global attention remains focused on Japan’s resilience and the efficacy of its response mechanisms in the face of such natural disasters.

On Tuesday, Jr NTR conveyed to his fans that he has safely returned to India after a week spent in earthquake-ravaged Japan. The region experienced a powerful 7.6-magnitude earthquake, followed by aftershocks and a devastating tsunami. The catastrophe has resulted in a reported loss of at least 12 lives, prompting continuous efforts for rescue and relief in the affected areas. The acclaimed RRR star extended his sincere condolences and sympathy to those profoundly affected by this calamity.
