RRR – SS Rajamouli’s upcoming magnum opus is one of those rare movies which is believed to break the director’s previous box office records of Baahubali. Yes, without any material it seems like hyperbole now but the movie has been backed by 100s of crores. The movie brings together the superstars Jr NTR and Ram Charan.
With the kind of investment the movie is riding in, we surely are in for a grand treat. British actress Daisy Edgar-Jones was considered as the leading lady of the film but then the news popped that she has left the film. This lead to the rumours of Emma Roberts making her way to the film.
But it seems Emma has also rejected the film. According to Tollywood.net Emma Roberts will also not be a part of the film. Their resources state that she is not able to allot bulk dates for the film and hence has backed out from it. The director has started the hunt for another actress now.
Recently speaking to reporters, Rajamouli said that RRR, which is being made on a lavish scale, will be a fictional story based on two real-life heroes and freedom fighters – Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. “This is a fictional story set in 1920s pre-independence 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,” Rajamouli said.
While Jr. NTR, otherwise known as Tarak, will be seen as Komaram Bheem, Ram Charan will be playing Alluri Seetharama Raju. RRR also stars Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt and Samuthirakani in key roles. The film will hit the screens worldwide on July 30, 2020, in 10 Indian languages.
