He also stays clear of any oblique reference to his star father by way of dialogue or adopting any particular mannerism or style." His performance in the film earned him a Filmfare Best South Debutant Award and Nandi Special Jury Award.
After the release of the 2009 film Magadheera, which was only his second film, directed by S.S.Rajamouli, Charan established himself as one of the leading contemporary actors of Tollywood. He played dual roles in this film in which one is a brave soldier of a kingdom in Rajasthan in the 17th century in love with the princess but loses her and dies, the other a bike racer who falls in love with a girl who is the reincarnation of the princess and wins her knowing their past. His portrayal got immense critical acclaim. The Times of India wrote: "Ram Charan returns as a valiant soldier and breathes life into the larger-than-life role with ease. He showcases his horse-riding and dancing skills to perfection." IndiaGlitz commented: "Charan has come up with a mature performance and he has carried the film very well. Both his characters were done justice and he reminded of his father at many places." Directed by S. S. Rajamouli, the film received six Filmfare Awards including the award for Filmfare Award for Best Actor – Telugu and Nandi Special Jury Award for Charan. In 2009, he became a spokesperson for Pepsi's advertisement campaigns.
Charan starred in Bommarillu Bhaskar's Orange in 2010 as Ram, an NRI living in Australia whose opinions are against loving forever. IndiaGlitz wrote: "Ram Charan gave an excellent performance all through the film. His attire, makeup, dressing style, accessories, and body language give the audiences a fresh feel of an urbane guy. He improved a lot in all the departments including action, dances, dialogue modulation, body language."
Charan got engaged to Upasana Kamineni, the vice-chairman of Apollo Charity and chief editor of B Positive magazine, in Hyderabad on 1 December 2011. Upasana is the granddaughter of Prathap C. Reddy, the Executive Chairman of the Apollo Hospitals. Subsequently, they got married on 14 June 2012 at the Temple Trees Farm House.
His next film was Rachcha, directed by Sampath Nandi. He did the role of Betting Raj, a gambler whose life takes a toll on him. IndiaGlitz wrote: "He shows flashes of Chiru-ness more than he ever did in the past; be it his baritone or demeanor, he is a Megastar in effect. Helped by a strong script, he could have been much better." The film released on 5 April 2012 and was declared a commercial success.
His first release in 2013 was Naayak, directed by V. V. Vinayak. He played another dual role, one a mafia leader in Kolkata and the other a simple software employee in Hyderabad.

His next film was Bruce Lee where he played the role of a stuntman who gets involved in a scuffle. It wasn't a success due to its weak narration and comedy. His next film Dhruva (2016), was declared a hit due its unique story and visuals. Times of India wrote: "Ram Charan looks his fittest best.
