Director SS Rajamouli made a big announcement last year that he would direct a multi-starrer featuring Jr NTR and Ram Charan Teja in the lead roles. Right from the day of its announcement, movie buffs have been waiting eagerly for more information about the project, but the director is playing his cards close to his chest.

Recently, the film’s producer DVV Danayya confirmed that it would be a mega project made on a budget of Rs 300 crore. Tentatively titled RRR (for Rajamouli, Ram Charan and Rama Rao), reports from Tollywood indicate that the director will be adding one more R to it.

We hear through sources that the ‘rain’ factor will be playing a major role in this film. Reports add that RRR will be located in a film set within a timeframe of 24 hours and audiences will get to see rain in every frame. However, these are unconfirmed reports as there is no official word from the director yet.

The film is expected to go on the floors in August this year and the groundwork for it has begun already. The test photo shoot happened in the US last month with both Ram Charan as well as Jr NTR taking part in it.

While there is still no clarity on who will play the female leads in the project, reports suggest that Samantha Akkineni may go on to bag a role.

Jr NTR is currently busy with the Trivikram Srinivas directorial which has not been titled yet and Ram Charan is basking in the immense success of his latest film release Rangasthalam which was directed by Sukumar. Made on a budget of Rs 60 crores, this film has reached the Rs 100 crore club and is still going strong in theatres.

SS Rajamouli, who has the massive success of Baahubali to his credit, will reportedly be taking up a completely different genre with RRR.
