I am also aware that many of you are disappointed about the lack of a first look or a teaser from RRR. Believe me when I say that the team is as disappointed as you are.



They have worked extremely hard and tried to come up with something worthy of the film. But social distancing guidelines and restrictions prevented the team from getting it done.

RR is a prestigious film that is being helmed by Rajamouli Garu, so I have no doubts that you will be thrilled by the final output.

Once again, thank you for all the love.” (sic)
