The SS Rajamouli directorial RRR is one of the most expected films in the Indian film industry. It is the directorâ€™s first venture after the massive Baahubali franchise with which he was associated with for five years. Therefore, the expectations are very high. While Baahubali was a historical film, sources in the know say that RRR is a period film set in the pre-Independence era.
A few days ago, there were reports that the Bollywood star Ajay Devgn is in talks to play the baddie in RRR. Another buzz is that Kannada star Yash has been approached for the role as well. However, Yash has put an end to this as mere rumours. He has said that neither Rajamouli nor anyone from his team has approached him for the role.
RRR stars two of Tollywoodâ€™s top stars Ram Charan Teja and Jr. NTR in the lead roles. The shooting of RRR commenced recently and reports are that the director has begun with an action sequence that will feature both the heroes. While Jr NTR will be sporting a bulky look with a beard, Ram Charan will be seen with a completely different new hairstyle. A top hairstylist has been brought in to work on it. This definitely has the fans thrilled. Massive and extravagant sets have been erected for shooting the fight scene and it is progressing well. Meanwhile, the team is scouting for suitable heroines to pair up with the heroes.
Yash is currently busy with the post-production of his upcoming release KGF. The film is gearing up for release on December 21. It will be released in five languages Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Hindi and Malayalam simultaneously giving it a massive opening. Directed by Prashanth Neel, who has also written the story, screenplay and dialogues, the film is produced by Vijay Kiragandur under his banner Hombale Films. The technical team comprises music director Ravi Basrur, cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda, and art director Shivakumar. While Yash and Srinidhi Shetty play the lead pair in it, the rest of the star cast includes Achyuth Kumar, Nassar, Malavika Avinash, Anant Nag and Vasishta N. Simha.
