Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn had earlier been roped in for SS Rajamouli‘s next project RRR and with this film, the duo will be marking their Telugu debut. Latest rumours suggest that Sanjay Dutt and Varun Dhawan have also been roped in for the film.
Though nothing has been confirmed as of now but speculations are rife that Varun and Sanjay will be starring in the film along with Alia and Ajay. Set in the 1920s, the film is a fictional story but is based on two legendary freedom fighters Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem.
Earlier, the official handle of RRR Movie took to their Twitter to welcome Alia and wrote, “Welcome aboard, @aliaa08! We are glad to have you play the female lead in our film.

RRR will also star Jr NTR who will play the role of Komaram Bheem and Ram Charan who will be seen as Alluri Sitharama Raju. The film is slated to release on July 30, 2020.
