RRR, which stands for Roudram Ranam Rudhiram, is Rajamouli’s big dream project that features Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the lead with special performances by Ajay, Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, and Samuthirakani. The film is based on the life of popular freedom fighters Aluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. During the launch of RRR earlier last year, the director has revealed that there are some gaps in the life stories of these two celebrated freedom fighters and nobody knows what they did in those years. The director has now tried to fill those gaps with his fictional story set in the 1920s pre-Independence era. Also Read - Mahesh Babu to Play a James Bond-Like Spy in SS Rajamouli's Next After RRR?
