After Baahubali, SS Rajamouli’s next massive multi-starrer film features Jr NTR and Ram Charan in the lead roles.
Mumbai: After a year of the official announcement, SS Rajamouli’s upcoming massive multistarrer casting Jr NTR and Ram Charan is titled to be “RRR”. It is announced that the film will have the title same as the working title.
Bollywood star Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn have joined the cast of filmmaker SS Rajamouli's upcoming venture "RRR".
The core story of the film is carved based on the two profound Indian freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharamaraju & Komaram Bheem. According to the chronicled stories, it is said that both of them were missing for few years before they became the legends and fought for the country.
RRR is a pure fiction that has been drafted on the idea of them meeting each other in Delhi and later becoming friends during their away time. Set in 1920s, the film will have a British regime including then culture and lifestyle. It is a pan Indian story painted on a large canvas.
Alia said she is excited about working with the critically-acclaimed director and south superstars Ram Charan and Jr NTR.
Welcome aboard, @aliaa08! We are glad to have you play the female lead in our film. Happy Birthday in advance and hope you will have a wonderful journey with us..:) #RRRPressMeet #RRR @ssrajamouli @tarak9999 #RamCharan @dvvmovies @RRRMovie pic.twitter.com/iZmB8N9z9I— RRR Movie (@RRRMovie) March 14, 2019
"Working with Rajamouli sir is a big tick off my bucket list. Also to be alongside Ram Charan and Jr NTR is an absolute honour. I am very excited about this experience and also working in the south for the first time," Alia said in a statement.
Though based on the nationalistic characters, RRR is not a patriotic story and will not have any chauvinistic elements in it. It is a befitting tale of two intense people with intense emotions and has a 300 crore budget.
The cast of the film includes Daisy Edger Jones, the British actress of Cold Feet and Silent Witness Fame; as one of the two leading ladies accompanied by Ajay Devagn, a celebrated Bollywood hero known for his action sequences; and Samutra Khani, playing significant roles.
