Rajamouli is busily canning key scenes in the most prestigious multi-starrer of the era #RRR.
The star cast of #RRR is not completely finalized yet. Rajamouli is still hunting for a foreign actress to play Komaram Bheem’s love interest.
Daisy Edgar Jones who was finalized for the role has walked out due to personal reasons.
There is another female character who admires Bheem played by Tarak. If the buzz is to be believed Nithya Menen has been roped up for the tribal girl character that admires Bheem.
Alia Bhatt is playing Alluri Sitaramaraju’s (played by Charan) pair. Rajamouli is making sure to have the best and widely popular actors even for cameo appearances.
#RRR is aiming for release on July 2020 release, but the filming is currently behind schedule due to casting issues and the injured lead actors.
#RRR is a pan India film with universal emotions and relatable subject.
Rajamouli is an avid moviegoer in spite of being a busy and successful director.
He watches almost all the films on day 1 amid morning show crowds to catch the pulse of the audience. It is probably one of the success secrets of the Baahubali director.
Rajamouli used to be a bit liberal in showering praises upon the movies he watched. He used to put obligatory tweets too.
But of late Rajamouli is being very selective about tweeting about the movies he liked.
He stopped posting obligatory tweets after he is being followed by the National media and movie fans across the nation. Which means if Rajamouli tweets about a film then it is genuinely special.
Rajamouli tweeted about a movie after a very long time and it is about Jersey. He didn’t tweet about a single movie after Geetha Govindam that was released eight months ago. This shows that only a few films are able to reach the bar he has set for himself.
“Heart warming and joyful.. #Jersey is full of superbly written, crafted and Directed scenes… Well done Gowtam Tinnanuri… A film which everyone involved can be proud of..
Nani “Babu”… Just love you anthe..,” tweeted Rajamouli in praise of Jersey.
Shraddha Kapoor who is making debut in Tollywood opposite Prabhas in “Saaho” is in much demand.
Though she is good friends with Prabhas, Shraddha reportedly turned down an offer from Prabhas’s guru S S Rajamouli.
According to Bollywood media, Rajamouli offered a role to Shraddha Kapoor for his upcoming film “RRR” to star opposite NTR Jr.
Since Alia Bhatt has been cast opposite Ram Charan in the film and the foreign actress Daisy walked out of the movie for family reasons, Rajamouli reportedly changed his decision not to cast another foreign actress and approached Shraddha Kapoor.
As per Bollywood media, she has turned down the mega project as she is tired of being part of big films that take many months’ time to get finished.
She has been shooting for “Saaho” for the past two years and doesn’t want to do a similar big-budgeted movie like “RRR” that is being mounted on large scale with estimated budget of Rs 350 Cr.
“RRR” has NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn as the principal cast. DVV Danayya is producing this movie.
Current schedule of #RRR has gone haywire as Charan suffered a leg injury. He was advised to take rest for a couple of weeks and Rajamouli had to make changes to the current schedule accordingly.
Alia Bhatt was supposed to join the shoot in this schedule, but she had to cancel her dates due to Charan’s injury.
Alia is so busy in May with her Bollywood assignments that Rajamouli and team #RRR would have to wait until June or July.
It was Alia’s dream to be a part of Rajamouli’s film which is why she accepted to play one of the female leads in RRR despite her busy schedules in Bollywood.
However, team RRR will have to be patient to make sure that Alia remains to be a part of the film.
Daisy Edgar Jones who was supposed to romance NTR has missed out on RRR. The team is currently searching for a replacement.
Alia Bhatt has signed on to play the female lead opposite Ram Charan in Rajamouli’s mega epic period drama which chronicles the early days of freedom fighters Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem.
She was Rajamouli’s first choice but she came on board only recently after producer Danayya and director Rajamouli have agreed to pay what she demanded.
Alia Bhatta reportedly demanded more remuneration than what she gets for a Bollywood movie.
Rajamouli and Danayya have agreed after considering the fact that her presence would help for the movie’s North India market.
“Today I feel truly truly grateful.. Cannot wait to begin this beautiful journey with this stellar cast and massive team.. thank you @ssrajamouli sir for giving me this opportunity to be directed by you,” she thanked Rajamouli on Twitter.
This is the first time in Tollywood that an actress is receiving such huge pay check.
After creating magic in “Baahubali” and “Baahubali 2”, S S Rajamouli is experimenting with casting for his latest period extravaganza.
Industry buzz is that a foreign actress will be playing opposite NTR Jr in this movie.
The film features Ram Charan as NTR Jr in two lead roles which are designed on the lines of Lord Rama and Ravana respectively. However, this films is set in British era.
A foreign actress has already been taken for NTR is what we hear.
If everything falls in place, Ram Charan may romance Bollywood leading lady Alia Bhatt but she is still dodging on.
Remuneration has become an issue for her. If Rajamouli agrees to pay what she is demanding, she might sign the film.
RRR went on floors in November 2018 and has completed its two schedules. The film is heading for Kolkota later this month for 40-days long schedule.
Top director S S Rajamouli is again approaching Alia Bhatt for the female lead for his latest mega period action drama tentatively titled “RRR” that features NTR Jr and Ram Charan as the lead stars.
The big-budgeted extravaganza that is said to be made with whopping Rs 300 Cr requires three female lead actors to play opposite these two male stars but Rajamouli is precisely looking for two heroines at this moment.
The other heroine will be finalised second half of 2019 as her character is not that important to the main story.
Rajamouli wants Alia Bhatt for the main female lead as he is bowled over by her performances in “Raazi”, “Gully Boy” and “Udta Punjab”.
She was earlier approached but busy actress said her inability to adjust dates to this epic movie.
Again, Rajamouli has ordered his production and casting team to approach whether she can adjust dates if she is provided more remuneration. Rajamouli is willing to pay big pay check to her if she provides priority dates.
His team will now talk to her. She is currently shooting with her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor for “Brahmastra” being produced by Karan Johar.
