Samuthirakani on board for Rajamoulis’s RRR

The actor's pivotal role sees him playing as the paternal uncle of Ram Charan

Published: 18th December 2018

Samuthirakani has landed a pivotal role in director SS Rajamouli’s multi-starrer, RRR starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan. He will be playing the role of Charan’s paternal uncle in the period-action film set in the backdrop of the pre-Independence era. “The film has an important babai-abbai track and the makers felt Samuthirakani will give a different spin to the (older) character. Samuthirakani will start shooting for his portions in the next schedule,” says a source.

The first schedule of RRR was wrapped up earlier this month. The team is now gearing up to commence a five-day schedule on January 19 in a specially-erected forest set in Hyderabad. Mounted on a budget of Rs. 300 crore, it is believed that the makers have leased out 34 industrial cameras and 16 wheel trucks for a year for the production. With music by MM Keeravani, the multilingual will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, and Malayalam.
