The grand press meet of Rajamouli’s upcoming biggie RRR took place on Thursday morning at Hyderabad. The director, along with his two heroes NTR and Ram Charan and the producer DVV Danayya, addressed the media with a lot of facts about the film’s storyline, cast and working experience on the whole. Rajamouli confirmed the inclusions of Bollywood stars Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt, along with Daisy Edgar Jones and Samuthirakani.
Speaking at the event, Ram Charan was all smiles talking about the experience of working with NTR. “I still don’t know if this is reality. I am so happy to be a part of this. Working with my best friend from the industry is such a great experience. One year ago, I got a call from Rajamouli to his residence. When I went there, I was so surprised to see Tarak (NTR) sitting there, and he reciprocated the same response. It was a huge announcement for us in the first place, to know that we would be working together. Both of us are playing very respectful, memorable characters. I am already enjoying working with him, the bigger schedules are yet to come and I am all the more excited,” said the actor.
The mic was passed on to NTR, who said “Usually, I am very confident at press conferences, but today, I am quite nervous and overwhelmed. RRR happened only because of Jakkanna (Rajamouli). It is indeed a very special film in our career – because it is Rajamouli’s film, and the fact that I get to share the screen with Charan. He is my very close friend, one with whom I can share my happiness and sorrow. The bonding between us has gone to the next level after this film has taken shape. I pray to God that we stay friends forever. RRR is definitely a film that demands a lot from the actors, and it will surely bring pride to everybody involved.” Matching up to the friendship between both the actors, Rajamouli interestingly stated that he would have gone for another story if either one of them had not accepted to be a part of the film.
RRR is set for a grand release on the 30th of July 2020. The film which is loosely based on the lives of India’s freedom fighters in Alluri Sitharama Raju and Komaram Bheem, is being rolled out at a budget of close to 400 crores.
