Several top heroines are in fray to play the female lead in the SS Rajamouli directorial RRR, a multi-starrer that has Ram Charan Teja and Jr NTR as heroes. The film was announced last year and its regular shooting will begin on November 29, as revealed by the filmmakers.
While some top names in the Telugu film industry are being discussed to play the female lead in RRR, reports suggest that Keerthy Suresh is the top contender for it. The actor was last seen in the multilingual Mahanati, a biopic on the legendary actor Savitri. She had played Savitri in Mahanati and won critical acclaim for it. Despite a big success in Tollywood with Mahanati, Keerthy did not sign up any new project in Telugu. This gave rise to a speculation that she is waiting for a call from SS Rajamouli for RRR. If things work out favourably, she may be seen sharing the screen space with Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the movie.
Meanwhile, the director has retained his Baahubali crew for RRR as well. The technicians include MM Keeravani for music, KK Senthil Kumar for cinematography, Sabu Cyril for production design, Vijayendra Prasad for scripting, etc. Made on a budget of Rs 300 crore, the project is being bankrolled by DVV Dhanayya under his banner DVV Entertainments.
Reports are that during the first schedule, action sequences involving the lead stars would be shot. RRR is slated to hit the marquee in January 2020 as Sankaranthi release and the team is working towards this deadline.
It may be noted here that the movie launch happened recently on a big scale with some top stars from the film industry attending it.
