Actors Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt have been roped in to play important roles in director SS Rajamouli‘s next big film, titled RRR. The film is a fictitious story based on two legendary freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharamaraju and Komaram Bheem. Jr NTR and Ram Charan play the lead roles. Alia will be seen opposite Ram Charan while British actor Daisy Edgar Jones will be seen opposite Jr NTR.
RRR is slated to hit the screens on July 30, 2020. The film will be widely released in languages Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and others. Much like Rajamouli’s other films, RRR is also being made on a huge budget of around Rs 300 crore. However, the director has decided to make it as an individual film rather a series like Baahubali.
The announcements were made at a grand press event on March 14. The first look of the film is also out. The poster shows the two lead actors in their action avatar staring at each other from the corners of their eyes. Check this out:
RRR is going to be Alia’s first Telugu and Tamil film outing. The actress is a prominent name in the Hindi film industry. With RRR, she has joined the league of her contemporaries who moved to South to leave a mark on the audience’s heart with their performances. Sonakshi Sinha, Deepika Padukone, Huma Qureshi, Radhika Apte, Iliana D’Cruz, Taapsee Pannu, and Shraddha Kapoor among others have already acted in popular films both in the Hindi and Tamil/ Telugu film industries.
RRR is one of the most anticipated films of next year. While it’s an action drama, at the heart of it lies a powerful patriotic storyline depicting India’s struggle to get freedom in 1947. It’s set in the 1920s, much before the nation got free. After Baahubali, expectations are high from Rajamouli and it will be interesting to see how well does he fall at par with these expectations.
