Rajamouli ropes in Bollywood stars Sanjay Dutt and Varun Dhawan for 'RRR'
Rajamouli’s upcoming flick RRR, with Ram Charan and Jr NTR playing the lead roles, will be hitting the marquee on July 30 in 2020. The director has roped in Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt to play opposite Ram Charan in the film and Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn will be also seen playing an important cameo.
According to latest reports, Rajamouli has got on board Bollywood stars Sanjay Dutt and Varun Dhawan to play pivotal roles in RRR. Earlier, the director had signed up Tamil actor and director Samuthirakani for a role, it may be noted here.
On RRR, director SS Rajamouli had reportedly told the media during a recent interaction, “This is a fictional story set in 1920s pre-independent era. Most of us are well aware of the stories of Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. We know they are popular freedom fighters and were fearless. What most of us don’t know is that there are gaps in the lives of these revolutionaries that we don’t know about. We don’t know what happened in their lives in these years.”
Ram Charan will be playing Alluri Seetharamaraju and Jr NTR will be playing the role of Komaram Bheem in RRR. On the technical crew roped in for the project, we hear that MM Keeravani is on board to compose the tunes and KK Senthil Kumar for cinematography with A Sreekar Prasad roped in for editing.
RRR is bankrolled by DVV Dhanayya under his banner DVV Entertainments on a budget of Rs 350 crore.
Plans are on to release it in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. While the makers have decided to retain the title RRR in all languages, the extended titles could differ.
“Regarding the expansion of the title, we are open to accepting suggestions from fans and public. If we get good suggestions, we will use them,” Rajamouli said during a press meet held recently.
