Director SS Rajamouli's upcoming flick RRR has been the talk of the town for several weeks now. At a press meet, which was held today in Hyderabad, the filmmaker along with actors Jr NTR, Ram Charan and producer DVV Danayya shared tidbits about the film.
Producer DVV Danayya, in an earlier interview, disclosed that the film's budget was Rs 300 crore. However, at the press meet, Danayya shared details about the film's budget. He said that the budget ranges from Rs 350 to Rs 400 crore. It is indeed a staggering amount for RRR, which is set in the pre-Independence era in the 1920s.
RRR is a fictitious story on two Telugu freedom fighters Alluri Seetharamaraju and Komaram Bheem. Rajamouli said, "RRR will be a fictitious tale about 2 real-life heroes, set in pre-independence times. We are mounting the film on a very big scale. There's a lot of research involved over the past 2 years."
The film, which is a one-part story, will grace the screens worldwide on July 30, 2020, in 10 Indian languages. Rajamouli assured that the audience will not see Jr NTR and Ram Charan on screen.
"We are confident that the audience and fans will forget that it's NTR and Ram Charan onscreen after their intro scenes and 15 mins into the film. They'll only see their characters. Both characters are powerful and well-balanced," said Rajamouli.
While Alia Bhatt is paired opposite Ram Charan, foreign actress Daisy Edgar Jones will be romancing Jr NTR. The film also has Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn and Samuthirakani playing crucial roles.
